Diving the Keys - music to my ears. I'm a PADI divemaster (303819), and have been diving wiht dozens and dozens of dive operators from Puerto Rico to Tahiti. Florida Keys Dive Center (KFDC) stands out amongst the rest. We dove with FKDC. The "we" in this case was group of 30 divers affiliated with Gulf Coast Divers in Tampa,... More

Probably the best dive experience I've ever had in the Keys. The staff and the boats are all top notch. Our second day out there were only 8 people on our boat. Not likely I will ever dive with another outfit when diving in that area.

This was not my first experience with the Florida Keys Dive Center as I had completed my Open Water Dive Certification the year before with great satisfaction. This past week I took a two tank dive for the first time since my certification and due to the lack of dives I was paired with a guide. Oklahoma-native Joe Nunnelly was... More

Everything about this company and their dive was incredible except for one thing, which was my fault. I knew better than to show them my master instructor card, but they wanted to see my log book. The only one I have shows students and what class I was teaching on each dive. BIG mistake!!!! They stuck me with a dive... More

Just finished my first dive certification!! FKDC was awesome!! From the first phone call to the last docking, all was smooth and efficient but more importantly, FUN! I had Zach and Joe as instructors and they were both fabulous instructors and great guys! Neither were slow to point out the things I did wrong, they were paying attention, which you... More

After getting cancelled from another company, because they overbooked...we called Florida Keys Dive Center to see if they had room for our party of 4 for their 1:00 snorkel trip. They said "absolutely, no problem". Everything went smooth at check in and we were then off on a very nice boat. There were 26 snorkelers on the boat but there... More

A great dive shop within easy reach of many excellent reefs and wrecks. The crew and staff are great with the divers and are experienced and knowledgeable. Looking forward to diving with them again.

My visit to the Keys with the Florida Keys Dive Center was excellent, lacking nothing. When I decided to fulfill long thought of plans to visit the Keys for a diving vacation, I have to admit that my selection of FKDC was a completely random choice. My first call to them I spoke with Yvonne. After describing what I was... More

booked two dives for our family of 5 with kids ages 17, 15 and 11; a great time for all of us!! Scuba Joe and Holger were great teachers, patient and with lots of great advice. Captain Tom was an experienced confident captain. The gals in the shop helped us with all the paperwork and offered suggestions on trips. Highly... More

My buddy Dick invited me down for a dive in the Keys. We did four dives with Capt Carsten, Stephanie, Scuba Joe and "Mikey". Nothing less then professional. Great team, fun to talk with, and good dive spots. Us two "old" guys had a lot of fun. Looking forward to next year.
