Did the two tank reef trip with my son who is snorkle only. He snorkled with great supervision while I completed my dives. The staff are amazing and very knowledgeable. They will assist the less experienced diver or make recommendations to the advanced. We will return.

Enjoyed 2 spectacular days diving with an awesome crew! Very experienced and knowledgeable. Were helpful to novices and experienced divers alike. This is the second time that we have dove with Captain Slate! Santa even dives with him! Captain Slate is at home with the eels and it is fun to watch him feed and interact with them.

These guys are awesome. Captain Slate was actually inducted into the scuba hall of fame, from his contributions to the sport early on. His daughter was our captain though. We had a fabulous time, at 2 different moorings on the reef. Visibility was good. The crew is 100% safety conscious. My 8 yr old grandson had developed a sudden fear... More

This is a great trip for families with teenagers and even smaller kids. Great for parties or friends and just an all around amazing experience. So nice to have people who connect with us and give us more than we could have ever wondered.

A great time to be had in keys exploring the underwater world. My nephew and I enjoyed our first saltwater dive with Captain Slate's Scuba Adventures. Our dive guide Skip made us feel relaxed yet confident. We explored Pleasure Cove and Davis reef and saw eels, sharks, lion fish, jelly fish, turtles, parrot fish and schools and schools of other...

Captain Slate came well recommended for referral dives. I dove with them for the first time in March 2016 for my Open Water certification. They were awesome and I had a 1:1 instructor to student ratio. Although I did not write a review for that visit, Hailey was a great instructor. The visibility was 80+ feet and the sites were...

My wife and I took an impromptu sunset cruise with Captain Sky and her crew. Perfect sunset, hors de oeuvres, and rum punch made for a great trip. If you're in Tavernier, give this a try!

Captain Slate's Scuba Adventure was AWSEOME!!!!! All the staff even down to the dogs were great! This was our first snorkeling trip and we couldn't have asked for a better crew for our adventure. I would highly recommend Captain Slate's to anyone looking for a great day on the ocean. Very affordable, very friendly and very good at what they... More

High winds made finding a dive site challenging, but Capt Sky put us in crystal clear water on Saturday afternoon. We encountered more marine life on Paradise reef than I typically see on the popular southern Keys reefs. I dove with Capt Slate 20 years ago and will return again soon bringing my daughter.

Our trip was absolutely perfect. The experience of the reef with it's vast marine life was coupled with an amazing crew that allowed me to show my family the most amazing day. For the price, there is simply nothing you can do to get a return quite like Captain Slate's adventure was able to provide. We seen three sharks, an... More
