My family went diving with Captain Slate for 2 days. We dove some pretty fantastic reefs with lots of abundant marine life: sharks, eels, fish, lobster, rays, etc. The staff aboard the boat was extremely helpful... water and snacks were provided between dives.

Came down here with my (now) husband to get married underwater with captain slat and it was the best! The instructor, Patrick, made everything easy and get to work with. Never felt rushed or uncomfortable the whole time. Great experience! So happy we did it!

Patrick and Skye were great crew (and Sarah too)! Hands down the best diving experience in the Keys. Feels like family every time we come here!

We went out to dive 3 days straight and each day these crew was extremely friendly and lively. Patrick was very nice and funny. Sky was a great captain and genuinely cared about our safety and about everyone having fun. Go Vols!

There a hotel right beside their property and it's walking distance I don't think they usually provide any transportation
Will you pick up and drop off at my hotel if I stay in the Key Largo area? If not, what are my options for transportation?
