This place is sheer amazingness. Took my wife snorkeling for her first time in crystal clear water. The captain took us to two different areas on the reef and we saw a ton of different marine wildlife including 2 sea turtles (which are apparently fairly rare for the area.) The captain is the type of man to make lasting customers/friends... More

SAVE YOUR MONEY! What a joke, we booked the "Creature Feature" based on the web site video depicting diving with nurse sharks, eels, grouper and barracuda that the Captain would feed. We were very excited (my wife and 2 sons who had recently passed their open water certifications) to see the "Creature Feature". Problems started before we got in the... More

We set up 2 days of diving with them last month, overall great experience. Had the chance to see them operate on a weekend (2 boats X 23 divers per boat) and then weekday (1 boat X 6 divers). They did a good job with site selection and overall operations. I'm not a huge fan of fish-baiting so the Sunday... More

We took the boys to get them dive certified and it was a great experience. They were so good with my son who had a hard time clearing/equalizing. They worked hard to get him down and succeeded! Be aware they are not highly organized or very worried about time. So if that's what your looking for this is not your... More

We are very sorry you were not interested in upgrading to snorkeling with us when you came to check in for the Glass Bottom boat. Unfortunately, equipment does break every so often so the boat was unavailable when you had planned to go out. Ultimately, we try to make everyone's trip to the Keys a fun experience and we are...

My boys and I attended the August Scuba Camp. We found the instructors Kevin & Wayne to be extremely helpful, patient and professional. The crew Matt and Ashley are hardworking and friendly. Captain Slate put on an amazing underwater show for the divers with sharks and moray eels!!! They also, were able to accommodate my husband in his refresher course... More

I won't go anywhere else. The people that work here love their job & show it. They take extra care of you & show you a good time on the dives.

This was my first snorkeling experience and it was wonderful! About 1 hour from Miami, it was a nice addition to our vacation and an activity I could participate in at 5 months pregnant. Due to slow moving travel on the one lane highway on Memorial Day weekend, the departure time was pushed back 1hr so I recommend calling them... More
