“Very cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Since I'm pregnant it was hard for my husband and I to find many things to do, but we decided to check this museum out. We are not divers, but it was still really cool to look at and learn. It's something different, but it worth checking out.

“A scuba diver's MUST SEE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

a long time local, some days the wind blows & you can't go diving- this place place has collected A LOT of memorabelia. My 4 year olds liked it & my husband, who retired from scuba instruction loves it as well. Great rainy day activity in the fabulous florida keys!!!!!!

“Interesting even for the non diver!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I visited this museum with my parents who are both keen divers. I found the history of diving very interesting and also scary.....shocking to realise how small a part scuba plays in the history of diving....you'll have to visit to find out more!!

Also great gift shop with some really unusual items.

We were also lucky to be able to attend a very interesting evening talk at the dive museum too - keep your eye out for information on their facebook site

“Great way to spend a couple hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

loved seeing the old hard hat dive suites. Very interesting displays, people that worked there seem to be very passionate about the sport of diving. A must see for any diver.

This is a great stop for the diver or even someone thats never dunked their head under water. A massive collection of dive gear and artifacts. Well worth a look.
