I just got my open water diver certification in this dive center and it was fantastic! Mike and Sally were my wonderful instructors and are highly recommended due to their patient and comforting character. It feels like they really care. If you're coming to the keys - it's a perfect way to spend some of your time and this is... More

We made our way back to the Florida Keys again so that my daughter could work on her scuba diving skills. As usual, the Florida Keys Dive Center helped us make some of the best memories ever! Not only have we made friends with the amazing people that work there, but the scuba guides (Michael and Don) made my daughter's... More

Very impressed overall. My son (13) and I took the elearning course to get a head start, as we live in NY. The dive shop was well equipped, and all the staff (as they were on the 'phone) very friendly. Sally was our instructor, and although more used to training instructors / wreck divers, she was incredibly detailed, efficient, and... More

We like to snorkel and we had many choices but we are very happy this is where we choose. The staff are very friendly, patient and kind hearted. We had a wonderful day and the water was awesome. We do own our own snorkel gear but what they had to offer seemed to be in excellent condition and the boat... More

My girlfriend and I spent three days with our instructor, Mike, getting my certification (and a refresher course for her). Mike was an excellent teacher - very patient, encouraging and a lot of fun to be around - and we saw some great wildlife on the reefs. I would highly recommend Mike if you're going for a certification or just... More

We went as a group of 14 snorkelers for a University class on their afternoon boat. We had a wonderful experience. Once the Captain and crew learned about our interests, they tailored the snorkel stops to our interests (studying the geology of the reefs and seeing different reef morphologies). We got to stop at a couple different snorkel spots that... More

My wife and I (Herb and Melanie) believe we found the diamond of dive charters in the keys. We will always come back here for diving and tell all of our diver friends about the great people who run the operation. The dive rates are the best we found in the keys and the staff is simply fantastic.
