If you are looking to get scuba certified/dive this is the place to go! Ask for Scuba Joe, he's amazing with kids! My son had the time of his life and Joe was so patient and helpful with him. Everybody there was friendly and fun and we had a great experience! Highly recommend them :)

If you're looking for a dive charter operation in the Key Largo area pick this one. You'll be in good hands and have no worries whatsoever. I dove with Flakeys for a week in July. Over the last 12 years I've traveled with groups to Bonaire and Cozumel several times. This was a my first venture alone and first time... More

Just wanted to thank all of the great people at FKDC. I had some problems. They worked so hard to help me complete my open water tests. Thank you so much and special thanks to Scuba Joe he was awesome. His passion and patience worked so well. Keep up the great work we will be back again. Tad & Colleen

Our family had done the Pennekamp trips and Looe Key and wanted to see a different part of the Keys. After reading the stellar reviews here, we booked the 1/2 day afternoon snorkel trip. We arrived early and were told we'd be on a Scuba boat. Ok, sounded cool, my kids wanted to get certified and this would show them... More

Great spot. We went lobstering and only found 1. Recommend not doing lobster trip. But if you do I would only get one license per couple. Felt like we wasted $20. Also if you haven't been diving in last year or two get refresher course before you go. Will not let you go without it. Doesn't matter if you have... More

Good boat, good captain, good times. I did my last checkout dive for my open water certification here. Ask for SCUBA Joe he is the man. I needed help getting in and out of the water, SCUBA Joe took care if it. I got stung by a jellyfish. SCUBA Joe took care of it. I wanted pineapples and watermelon after... More

First time to the keys for the second day of mini lobster season. The captain and first mate really cared that we enjoyed our dives and that we were successful in our hunt for the bugs. I will definitely be coming back and when I do we will use Florida Keys Dive Center!

We run a dive club in the Chicago area and travel to Florida Keys Dive Center every year with a number of club members. They help arrange all our dives, our accommodations, and work with us to ensure that all our club members (who have a variety of experience levels) have a personal itinerary that works for them. In our... More

The snorkeling trip was great . The staff was real nice and helpful. It was definitely worth it. The environment is great for families to spend quality time together and to see fishes as well.
