I conducted my 4 open water dives and was with a group from Tampa. The captain and crew were professional and laid back and really aided in making this a memorable and pleasurable experience. Will definitely come back once I'm certified to do wreck dives.

We try to come to the keys at least once a year, and for at least the last 7 years we have gone with FKDC.Because this is hurricane season, you never know what the weather will be like, but we lucked out and had a week of sunshine.I can't say enough good things about the staff:Captain Tom and Captain Carson,...

The staff are excellent. My husband and I went to learn scuba. I had a hard time and decided to snorkel instead. He got certified and loved it. I'm not giving up. I will be back to this dive center and try again.

I gave this group four stars (as opposed to the full five) for one reason only, which I will explain later. The captain, mate and other people were very friendly and helpful. They gave great instructions and helped wherever they could. My husband dives; I don't, but I love to snorkel. So I was excited when they could accommodate us... More

Scuba Joe and Tracy are always a pleasure to have on the boat...just finished my fourth trip with FKDC and can't wait to go back. Weather reef or erect diving - they will make sure you have a great dive experience.

My fiancé and I came down with a group from Tampa. We had the best weekend, Scuba Joe and Tracy were both great and the captain did an awesome job finding us the cool dive spots. We saw all sorts of marine life, including 2 sharks, sea turtle, sting ray, etc... We had the best time and could not speak... More

After completing my classroom and pool work at home in Tennessee, I visited Key Largo and did my 4 open water certification dives with Florida Keys Dive Center. I couldn't speak more highly of the experience - the whole team was incredible and personable, the boat and gear were in great shape, and everyone went out of their way to... More

Captain Dave was great. I was a bit disappointed with our first site, as it was hard to see much. The second spot was much better. I'd advise motion sickness medicine if you're susceptible to that sort of thing. Approximately 25 percent of our boat was extremely ill.

Thank you Captain Carsen and Scuba Joe for being so fun and positive despite the poor visibility today. I don't know how many times we've been diving with Flakeys however the captain and first mate are always kind and accommodating to our scuba club. Fresh cut pineapple after the dives, yummy! See you next time.

We were a group of 13, with 4 scuba divers and the rest snorkelers. From booking on the telephone,all the way through the end of the trip everything went great. Captain Dave and Scuba Joe took us out...ran into traffic on the way here and were late, they accommodated and took us out on a private 5 pm tour. Well... More
