Excellent experience. I am not comfortable in water but Hayley made me feel calm and relaxed. I had fun while gaining knowledge. At the boat, Captain Skipp was reassuring and encouraging. Not once did I feel rushed or a burden. I will definitely come back with my daughter next time.

This was amazing! Captain Cody and Mate Steve were EXCELLENT! So friendly and very patient with those who had any difficulty or didn't catch on a quickly. We went to 2 different locations which was amazing because we had to opportunities to see 2 completely different parts of the reef with very different marine life even though they were very... More

The Crews were GREAT! Captain Sky, Captain Skip, and Captain Slate did a fabulous job of getting us to some great divesites. Mate Haily and Mate Mathew catered to my groups needs. Oranges after the dives were a huge hit. I come every year, but this year was superbly special. Thanks for all that you did for us. If you... More

We had our wedding underwater conducted by Capt Slate. It was truly beautiful and magical. Capt Slate, Skye, and all the staff were friendly, experienced and went out of their way to make sure our day was special. Would definitely dive with them again.

Capt Sky was amazing, super energetic and helpful! She took care of us and always had a smile on her face. Capt Slate did a good job too, he took us to the Duane even though conditions were iffy and let us make the call there, we ended up diving the Duane on our 4th and last day and it... More

I didn’t think about it until after I left but this made 20 years of diving with Captain Slate’s in Key Largo. His crews have changed some over the years but somehow he always has good ones. The current crew is the best yet. He always puts on first class trips and his creature features are awesome. I'm planning to... More

I just spent 3 days of diving with Capt. Slate getting my 13 year old son certified. I have been diving with a lot of dive operations and Capt. Slate is certainly one of the more professionally run places. Check in was quick and the boat left right on time. The crew was very efficient, helpful and friendly. Thank you... More

Had a great time with the crew. Took us out to 3 dive sites. They allow partial Scuba and Snorkel on the boat so your entire party can do either. Boat was clean, restrooms available. Our goal was to dive Christ of the Abyss and we succeeded. The Captain even chose a different dive spot if it seemed to crowded... More

Just got back from a wonderful dive with Captain Slate's Scuba Adventures. My son and I dove the Eagle and a local reef. We dove in Key Largo 2 years ago and after going around to several shops in Key Largo, Captain Slate's had the best customer service. We have been staying in Fort Lauderdale and my son wanted to...

My wife Shannon and I had another great dive with Captain Slate's crew. Shannon hadn't been in the water in a few years so Hailey dove with her as a guide and it was great fun. I've been diving with Slate since the early nineties and I don't remember him having this beautiful a crew with Sky as Captain, Hailey... More
