Had a great time diving with Captain Slate. It was the first open water dive for my wife and kids. They gave us a safety briefing on the way out to the reef and a detailed procedures briefing before starting our dive. This was greatly appreciated for my four novice divers. Patrick was awesome making sure everything went smooth. Beautiful... More

Incredible dive with Captain sky and Captain Slate today at Captain Slate's dive shop. Great expertise in maneuvering that big boat for such a cute girl. Saw a vast variety of tropical fish eels rays and sharks on the Creature Feature dive. These guys really know where the good spots are and how to dive them. Great fun yet again.... More

I recently went on 5 dives with Capatain Slates. Excellent service, safety first and great dive locations. I love going out with folks that love the Sea as much as I do. Any diver will feel at home with this crew!

We happened to stop at the Visitor's Center on arrival in Key Largo. "Kenny" recommended this charter out of Tavernier and actually booked the trip for us. We went out July 30th on the 1pm, 4 hour snorkel trip. "Captain Sky" and her crew were very good and very knowledgeable. The boat was a little smaller than some we have... More

Our family went with Captain Skye and Patrick for 3 days diving and snorkeling. We couldn't have asked for a better time! They were patient with us, very attentive, and helped us have fun. Patrick even taught a couple of people in our party to snorkel. We will be back!

This place does an amazing job! The customer service was excellent! Everyone was extremely helpful! We had a lot of fun with Captain Slate, daughter Captain Skye and Patrick too!

I did 4 dives over 2 days with Captain Sky and the crew. They were professional and fun, and the spots we dove were great! Captain Slate has been running his shop for over 40 years, so when you dive with his operation you know that you are getting a true locals guide to the area. We saw all kinds... More

Dove last week with Capt Skye and her awesome crew. I haven't been back for many years but it was more of the same great hospitality, laughs, great service and beautiful day of diving. The new location is convenient with nearby hotel, pool, restaurants and quicker ride to the reefs. You can't go wrong with Capt Slate and his crew.
