Guided dive by 'Hollywood' of Molasses Reef. Saw eels, nursing shark, rock fish, lobsters, sting ray, countless fish but the highlight was watching an octopus eat a crab. Will come back to Key Largo to dive again and will certainly be a returning customer. Also won a free dive at their retail store on the wheel!!! See you next year... More

Rainbow Reef runs lots and lots of divers thru their operation. We, however, were not impressed. The boats were all clean and well maintained. You won’t be stranded out in the ocean. The wet suits were old, baggy, with holes, and provided zero protection from the cold water. The two-tank dives are run so close to each other as to... More

We came for a trip organised by Scuba Fun Dive and managed by the rainbow reef dive center. The crew of Rainbow reef is professional, secure ans helpfull. Thanks to all. I recommend. Feb seems to be a good period for this wreck trip, not too much people on board. (Maybe much more on reef dives too)

We went in to buy basic snorkel gear and we got the best customer service we've gotten anywhere. Stephanie helped us choose all the components of our kit and threw in a few extras to help us get the most enjoyment of it. So glad we chose to buy in person rather than take our chances with an online retailer.... More

Very professional and informative. Saw nurse sharks, rays, lobster, crab, numerous fish including a lizard fish and file fish. Followed back in by a pod of dolphins.... More

My wife and I dove with the folks at Rainbow Reef this past weekend. Our goal was to get our Advanced Open Water certification but with their help, were able to add on Enriched Air Diver (Nitrox) as well. The crew there really know what they're doing and you can tell they have a great time doing it. We had... More

Just got back from a week of diving with Rainbow Reef. We had a great time. This is the best place to dive with in Key Largo. Their staff is very experienced with the different reefs and wrecks. They go above as much as the can. The one day we were diving the Spiegel in the morning. When we got... More
