This was our first dive trip since getting certified and we were more than pleased. My son, 14, was a bit nervous by how far out we went to dive, but Mikey, our guide, made the entire time exciting and enjoyable. We saw tons of fish, beautiful coral, lobster, moray and even a pair of nurse sharks. I could not... More

My daughter and I planned a trip to the Keys to do her 'check out' dives for her PADI SCUBA certification. I spoke with several places on the phone and found Yvonne at the Florida Keys Dive Center to be a tremendous help in deciding to take my 22 year old daughter there for her first experience in open water....

I dove with this group several times and they were very attentive and professional. The boats a bit more packed with divers than I would like but the price is right with their coupon. Will dive more with them when in Tavernier. .

They sent me a link to write a review so I'm just gonna be honest- this place was not a good experience for me at all. First, they assigned me to the shallow reef boat without even asking if I wanted to do the deep wreck on the other boat. The only good thing about this place is that there... More

They were super welcoming and made me feel very comfortable even though I had never been scuba diving before. Scuba Joe was very thorough and I felt very prepared once we left the classroom and the pool and went on our first open water dive in the ocean. I was scared as some points while diving and my instructor was... More

Excellent service, roomy boat. Joe and Graham provided a great trip. Likes the Canyons reef the best. Lots of fish. Would recommend for snorkelers!

What a great operation Capt Tom Timmerman has got going from the top down. Probably one of the most well kept, cleanest dive boats I've ever been on. Saw then engine compartment and swear he keeps it clean enough to have lunch down there. Nice big 46' dive boat. Very comfortable. Fully equipped dive center. Anything you need, they'll probably...

There was a 75 year old lady in our group who hadn't snorkled before, but only got instruction on how to put mask on. She had a panic attack after a few minutes in the moderately choppy water and had to sit on boat for rest of morning. The scuba divers were only ever a few feet below us, and... More

Going back in our log it shows seas of 1 foot and less that afternoon you went out with us. These conditions are about one... More
