This was an amazing adventure! Everyone in our group loved it. The captain and crew were so kind and patient. We have 11 in our group and had a few that were not sure they were going into the water, but they crew encouraged them to try it. The two different locations were nice to see different things in the water. We were very lucky to have a beautiful day. Make sure to bring snacks and water for the trip because you're out for many hours. This is the best value for the experience.

We had a great time with these guys! They run their shop like family. My husband and i were in Key Largo on honeymoon (we're originally from Tampa) and after a bonefish charter didn't go as planned we decided to try to find a snorkel charter. I've been on boats, large and small my whole life and have to say we were blown away at the young captain, Hunter's skills. He backed it right into the slip like he was threading a needle... We also met a gentleman named Scott who certifies divers in the Tampa area so we plan to get certified together this summer! Then, we'll be back to do the creature feature and hopefully a night dive :) PSA - if you are prone to motion sickness or sea sickness I would recommend taking your drammamine 12 hours before so you don't miss out on the fun with these guys.

We had an amazing time. I was so scared to dive after a bad resort dive attempt. Instructor Bob was extremely patient and encouraged me the entire time without any pressure. Coming here was the best decision we ever made!

Had a blast with Instructor Trainer Bob and Capt. Hunter! Always laughs and smiles on the boat through our entire week of diving. The boat and dive site briefings by Bob were descriptive with slates to help us visualize the site. We had varying shallow reef dives to deep wreck dives- and they all were so much fun to explore. One of the best highlights was wonderful accommodation to do some last minute afternoon Lobster hunting, and we feasted that night! Can’t wait to hang out with Bob and Hunter again!!

We had an incredible week long trip of diving with Slates. Bob was helpful with everything and went above and beyond to make sure everyone was safe, comfortable and had an enjoyable time. Dive sights were all excellent and Capt Hunter and first mate Bob always put us in the best locations and favorable conditions. We can’t wait to go back for another adventure.
