The experience was great in many ways. The staff was super friendly, fun and very attentive. The staff was also very knowledgeable about the marine life, dive spots and diving tips for beginners. The boats are in great condition. The dive equipment was in good shape. I would go back and highly recommend this dive center.

While visiting the keys is an amazing experience in itself, my buddy and I couldn't pass up the chance to dive some of the warm, clear water off the keys. With 18-20 kt winds all week, our small dive boat days were limited so we visited Florida Keys Dive Center. The dive shop was very friendly and well organized. Evon... More

We stopped to pick up snorkeling gear and the staff was more than helpful with everything. They treated our kids great and even let us drop the equipment off after closing. They answered all of our questions and made us feel VERY welcome. I can't wait to visit again.

The staff at FKDC was knowledgeable and friendly. I was able to take the certification course in the morning in an outdoor pool and do 2 different dives in the afternoon in the ocean. Highly recommend.

I have been diving with this group since 2001 after completing the IDC/IE. I bring students and friends to dive with them and have NEVER been disappointed. Pam helps to set up the dives and works hard to meet everyone's individual needs. Thanks to Capt Carson, instructors and first mates, Lizzie and Stephanie. You guys are awesome. Your knowledge, experience,... More

The FKDC made the certification dives very easy. It had been more than six months from my introduction to scuba diving in a pool. Scuba Joe was patient and understanding. He helped with tank set up and answered many questions. He was very excited about diving yet calming to a very nervous first time. He assuaged many fears. Overall, a... More

Owners run a superb dive center. Easy to book a dive. Easy to get on boat. Scuba Joe loaded the rental tank on before divers arrived. Boat left on time. Teamed me (solo diver) with a nce couple from Virginia. Selected two great reefs for the dive - conditions and skill specific. Last dove with them 11 years ago and... More

Hi folks, first thanks for reading this post. Second, a big, huge thanks to Florida Keys Dive Center and Tom Witmer who ran my Instructor Development Course. I completed the IDC with Tom - who conducted it around my busy schedule to accommodate my "real job". Tom's instruction was top notch, and honestly prepared my better (in my humble opinion)... More

We chose to dive with the Florida Keys Dive Center during our visit as we were staying just down the road at the Coconut Palm Inn while visiting our daughter at the Florida Wild Bird Sanctuary in Tavernier. This was the first ocean dive for our daughter and Scuba Joe, Captain Tom, and Murphy did a great job of making... More
