This was our first trip to the Keys, and when you want to dive the Keys then Key Largo is the lace to be.
And when you dive Key Largo, Horizon Divers who you dive with.
My wife set up our dives with Angie and she made sure everything went smoothly.
We shipped our gear direct to their dive center and they held it for us. No concerns about weight limits on the plane.
We scheduled three days of diving, and although the weather only allowed for one day, that dive did not disappoint.
We went out on beautiful morning with 10 other divers giving us plenty of room on the Luna Bay.
Capt. Troy took us out to Elbow, which had good viz but a mild++ current.
Our dive lead, Rich, pointed out the some sea life photo ops and navigated the site.
Our next stop was North North Dry Rocks. The visibility went down to fair, but little to no current.
We were diving for the first time with new BCDs (Christmas Gifts) and my tank came loose on the first dive, and my wife's on the second.
Rich handled it like a pro; before I even knew the tank was starting to float, he was over and strapping it down.
When I saw the same thing happening to my dive buddy, he beat me to her and had it handled while I held her hand.
This was my wife's first open water dive in two years and they made it fun and exciting while helping her relieve some of the apprehension of getting back in the water.
I would dive with these guys everyday I'm in Key Largo, could not recommend them strongly enough.

My wife and I did a snorkel/scuba trip with Horizon Divers. I dove and my wife snorkeled. We checked out a couple wrecks and reefs and we both had a great time. There was a ton of life to see out there and we were lucky enough to have great conditions.

Captain Dani and Bob really made the trip special. They answered questions, made sure we were all safe and took really great care of everyone onboard. I can't speak highly enough of their great service and professionalism.

If you want to go scuba diving or snorkeling in the Keys, I would highly recommend a trip with Horizon divers!

My dive buddy and I chose Horizon Divers based on their stellar reputation as described in numerous positive on line reviews, as well as recommendations from our own local dive shops.

I am happy to say that this team of professionals not only met, but exceeded our expectations!

From booking our 4 days (10 dives) of diving ... with lots of email questions thoroughly and promptly answered ...
thru meeting the teams on each dive, we were so impressed with every attention to detail! Safety, diving protocols, site briefings, boat layout & etiquette (yes ... even where to properly position yourself in the event you find yourself "feeding the fish") this gang did not miss a beat. All necessary information was communicated effectively (and at times, very humorously) to divers of all levels. They were attentive to all questions or concerns, which were very few because they are all that good at what they do.

Captain Dani, Terry, Dianne, Jeff, Ric, Chelsea, Becca, Angie, and many others, were all very welcoming as we arrived each day. The dive sites were described to a tee, and were as beautiful as described. The wrecks were awe-inspiring structures that were so full of life that it was hard to decide where to point the camera at times.

It was obvious that every person on this team is passionate about creating a memorable experience for divers.

Thank you gang for making our time with you extraordinary. We will see you again next year.

Lydia

Five stars for Horizon Divers. Alas, my daughters and I just returned from another wonderful trip with Horizon Divers - four boat trips and eight dives over two days. As always they took excellent, professional care of everyone - chatting, making sure we had everything needed, help with entrance and exits, etc. Good emphasis on safety, boat briefings, and dive site descriptions and conditions.

One day when a group of 26 arrived close to departure time, they did a phenomenal job in getting them organized, in their seats, weights, etc. Hats off to the crew.

At the risk of leaving somebody out, many thanks to Captains Dani, Jeff, and Derek and also to first mate Doug. Also thank you to Angie and Becca I who were in the shop. You guys are the best.

Did my 250th on Double Dry Rocks during this trip. We did three days and had a great time with Capt. Dani and Capt. Troy. The crew was wonderful about masking up and keeping everyone safe. It was a wonderful trip. I would recommend diving during the week when the boat is less crowded.

Very enjoyable dive opportunity while at the keys. We were scheduled to go on a cattle boat to dive the Spiegel Grove. Two deep dives with surface time on an extremely turbulent sea. They were very accommodating, putting us on a two shallow dive trip. Turns out there was only four of us on the boat. The seas were still very rough but captain Dannie did great job making it as smooth as possible. The dives were at the Elbow reef and once under water were great. The second dive at a wreck near the old lighthouse was great. Two eagle rays, Flamingo Tongues, anenomies, Squid, stingrays and puffers. It was the best corals and fish in the keys in a while. Hopefully it is making a comeback!

Had a GREAT experience taking Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures with Jeff Knapp. He was very attentive to detail and heavily focused on the understanding and execution of skills. Jeff made the class fun while also taking my learning experience very seriously. I will definitely be back to take another tech class at Horizon with Jeff. All of the staff is very nice and accommodating. The shop also carries a ton of top of the line gear reasonably priced! I drove 6+ hours from Gainesville to take these classes with Jeff based on a recommendation and would gladly do it again!

We were diving with Horizon Divers for a few days at the beginning of the month. Captain Troy and First Mate Megan were by far the best! This is the best Captain and Mate duo we have dove with and everyone in our group has 200+ dives around the world. Both are exceptionally helpful and go above and beyond to make sure everyone feels welcome and relaxed. Megan made sure we felt comfortable since we did not have a guide with us and was there to answer any questions. She even switched our gear over in between dives! The day with First Mate Chelsea was our least favorite. She was not nearly as cheerful or sweet as Megan. Chelsea brought down the mood of the boat and spent the boat ride with her nose in her phone and was not pleasant to talk to. This day was a total 180 from the other days. She was rude and very short if we asked any questions that day. I am leaving a 5 star review because everyone other than Chelsea was awesome and one bad apple shouldn’t ruin the whole bunch. From check-in at the main shop to leaving at the end of the day ALMOST everything during our trip was perfect! Like I mentioned before everyone else was amazing including other staff around at the facility who’s names we didn’t catch.

Top notch is a phrase I don't use very often, only reserved for the best of the best. I wouldn't hesitate to call Horizon Divers a top notch and expert in the field of diving. On April 1st we were lucky to experience their knowledge first hand, we reserved a dive master to go with us. Our dive master Diane was absolutely fabulous, listened to my concerns, fears and short comings and gave me essential advice for underwater navigation, buoyancy and what to look for. She masterfully guided us through the reef and Christ of the Abyss. Although I took motion sickness medication prior to diving, I threw up both times when surfacing, the crew let me have my space, ensured my fins were off, assisted me on the boat and to my seat. They also got me water and checked my equipment. I can not express how much I appreciate this team, from the kindness and compassion to their knowledge. Thank you Horizon Divers and team!

Just spent a few days with Horizon Divers in Key Largo diving the big wrecks. I had used them before but after this trip they are now my favorite dive charter in the upper keys. Why? Because their customer service, attention to safety, and competence is outstanding. Especially Captain Gabriel who gave us several good rides out to the wrecks and he even made sure I got my fill of watermelon flavored Jolly Ranchers as I had requested. In fact I ate so many that my new favorite flavor is the green ones, I think they're called bitter apple or something similar.

Also forgot to mention that Horizon Divers doesn't cancel dives when conditions are a bit marginal, unlike the dive charter that used to be my number one. And because they're established and busy there usually isn't a shortage of divers to hit the required trip minimums, again, unlike the experiences I've had with other charters in the area.

See you guys again soon1
