I have been coming to Emotion since it was Pirate Island Divers and have never been disappointed. I've taken my advanced open water, my rescue diver and 3 specialty courses from them and always insist on Brian as my instructor. Brian is friendly, patient and very knowledgeable on all the topics. After all these dives together, I consider Brian (Maz)... More

I had booked an evening cruise and arrived at the wrong location (this one). They did not bat an eyelash and took all of us (11) for the same group price we were going to pay the other vendor. All of us loved the trip so much we booked an everglades tour several days later and ended up with the... More

We changed our reservation only day before we went and were glad that we changed it to the Marriott Bay Key LArgo. We found a team of super friendly people from Emocean sports, a nice shop with everything you might need. We did Kayaking, a snorkel trip and wave runner and we couldn't be happier. First class equipment, well maintained,... More

My daughter (8 yrs old) was dying to go on a boat ride but the seas were terrible when we were down! So we went on a sunset cruise on the bay with Captain Travis and First Mate Angie- they were awesome. Daughter, son hubby and my mom had a wonderful time, we saw dolphins playing and jumping in the... More

We came down to do training and dove with both of their operations in Key Largo. Brian was a great instructor and Pirate Island and Ocean Divers have great facilities. Boats were well appointed for Divers and the crew made sure all were safe and comfortable. Short trips out to dive sites and coordination with other operations meant that sites... More

We were staying with friends at the Marriott Bay Resort on Key Largo and planned two days of diving. Emocean Sports is the outfitter right there on the property.

First and foremost, everyone is so super friendly and best of all jokesters. However, I was a little nervous because there was no guide when doing the dives. Call me a dive snob, but I've never in my life dove without a dive master. Granted, I have only done dives outside of the US, but still, I love life, I'm... More

Thanks for the feedback, Sulynn, and the kudos and compliments. Just a quick reply to your "Just a Quick Getaway..."

After literally hundreds of dives out of key largo over the last ten years, I've seen dive shops turn from good friends that own dive shop businesses to business operators with customers.

We love to dive and try to get in the water every 2-3 weeks. After 20-ish dives with Emocean, we are spoiled for other shops. Joanie, Mazz, Capt.
