Since 1977 Quiescence has concentrated on providing it's clientele with an un-crowded and personalized way to enjoy the sport of diving - both scuba diving and snorkeling.

We have three boats here at Quiescence, and each operates with a maximum of six passengers to provide each customer with personalized attention, comfort, and safety. This also gives us the ability to take our divers out to spots not normally visited by divers.

Our charters operate within the Key Largo National Marine Sanctuary, John Pennekamp State Park, and beyond. Each dive location is selected first and foremost by the customer's wishes, supported by recommendations by the Captain as to local conditions.

This past weekend I just completed my PADI Open Water Diver certification by diving through Quiescence. I had an absolute blast doing my 4 certification dives and then an additional 4 recreational dives. They have 3 small boats that can take out 6 divers which makes for a more intimate experience. Also they were very generous with their time. The... More

We had a great first snorkeling experience with this group. The staff at the shop were very helpful and friendly and very helpful getting us fitted with gear! The smaller boat and individual service we're a big plus for our family. We shared the boat with only two others and we have a daughter who is almost 13 a son... More

Great time diving, took my son for his first dive after certification. Matt at the center was very helpful and gave us the full tour of the center explaining everything they have to offer. The center has top of the line facilities and the entire staff was very friendly and helpful. Love the 6 passenger boat dive, did not feel... More

I wanted to try this company because I really like the concept of a smaller amount of people per dive, but there is a reason that they only have 6 people on a dive that I was unaware of. It is because the boats are incredibly small with little to no room to move around. Since I do have an... More

I have been diving for over 25 years and without a doubt have to say my recent experience with Quiescence was one of the best and most memorable charters. I have become so accustomed to diving on cattle boats with 20+ divers that I never knew what I was missing. The company advertises that they only take 6 divers out... More

Our family of 4 reserved a snorkeling expedition for the morning hours. We were the only ones on the boat, which was really nice! We rented their underwater camera and bought an SD card for it. So worth the cost of rental (both together came out to about $70+ dollars)! The pictures came out very clear of our 3 different... More

We had an awesome time snorkeling with Captain Steve. Captain Steve was great, he took us to spots off the beaten path. We went to 3 different spots. It would have been more, but my wife and the other couples husband both got sea sick. So we agreed to call it early. Captain Steve to great care of us and... More

While in Florida my son wanted to go snorkeling and based on reviews I made reservations with Quiescence. We were not disappointed! Upon arrival we were greeted, completed the necessary paperwork, got fitted for our gear and headed out. Our guide was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and its wildlife. One of the great things about this... More

We were able to go on a five-hour snorkeling adventure for just under $50, gear and training included. The guys at the shop explained the gear very well and showed us how to get the right fit. Our skipper, John, was very friendly and knowlegable about the overall area, which made the half hour trip out to the ocean an... More

This biz has been around for years. That says something. Florida Keys dive Business come and go but the strong and loved survive. I Like the personal attention you get, you are not just a number. Their boats are NOT a cattle boat, their 3 boats are 6 person max. If you want a true Florida Keys warm welcome of... More
