Dive Duck Key in the heart of the Florida Keys is a full service retail scuba diving shop. Our dive shop and dive boat, the Seafari, are located at the Hawks Cay Resort, Duck Key, Florida. We specialize in reef and wreck scuba diving in the Florida Keys. Hawks Cay Resort is oceanside, which allows us to get to our destination quickly for a great day of scuba diving in the middle Keys. The coral reef off Duck Key is as close as 3 miles from our dock.

Diving with our shop, Dive Duck Key, we can show you up to 30 different dive spots, located off Duck Key, mile marker 61, on the 180 mile chain of the Florida Keys' coral reef. The Florida Keys' coral reef is composed of thin plates or layers of calcium carbonate secreted over thousands of years by billions of tiny, soft-bodied animals called coral polyps. The reef is constantly growing new colonies of polyps on top of the skeletons of older ones. These coral formations can be seen just under the water's surface to deeper than we can dive recreationally.

Dive Duck Key has a long list of fun things to do while vacationing in the Florida Keys. We offer great scuba diving trips, resort courses, SNUBA(R), and full scuba diving certification lessons. We rent all types of scuba gear - including tanks, regulator consoles, dive lights, weight belts, full/shorty wet suits, hoods, mask, prescription masks, fins, open heel fins with booties, snorkels - whatever you need to dive the Florida Keys. We also repair scuba diving equipment and we can fill your tanks with air, and have nitrox tanks available for rental. Dive Duck Key has a large inventory of scuba and snorkel retail items. Plus, our T-shirts are great; pirates, scuba dive and snorkel scenes, and of course, sharks!

My daughter and I went on a hunting dive where we got to catch lobster and take a crack at spearfishing and we had a great time! The dive masters are AMAZING! Schwenke was our guide for the dive and he really knew what he was doing and where to find the lobster. Such a cool experience! Would definitely recommend!

We went out twice with Dive Duck Key twice the week of Thanksgiving. The Dive Masters that went down with us (Jeanie and Schwenke) helped us to create memories we will never forget (swimming with a loggerhead turtle, sharks, stingrays, pufferfish, crabs) and the crew on board the Seafari that always helped us with our equipment (thanks, Gabe!) and made...

3rd time diving with this diving shop/crew. Everyone is very kind, helpful. I was down here for a yearly medical conference and dove each afternoon. Very short walk over from Hawks Cay resort. Will definitely come back again. All dive masters and staff were helpful and courteous. Drinks for before and after each dive, freshwater cooler as well.

We dove with these guys on 11/4/16. Excellent experience from signing in at the shop all the way through the end of the day. Captain Aly, Schwanke, and our guide Tony were extremely knowledgeable, very helpful, and provided us with a great diving experience. Highly recommended.
