I went here for my dry suit certification dives. It's not, as other reviewers have pointed out, the prettiest place to dive in Key Largo. The bottom is mucky and visibility was 10-15 feet after a large rescue diver certification class came through. On the other hand, for someone like me, hoping to learn to dive in less than ideal conditions, in a dry suit, it was perfect for learning the necessary skills. The diving is shallow and there are well-maintained platforms to work from. Access is easy, either giant striding off the surrounding wall or going down wide, well-maintained stairs into the water.
The underwater habitat is cool. We actually poked our heads up into the wet room to have a look and you can look in through the windows at other rooms. There are critters, though it certainly isn't as busy a place as the reefs around the island. Since I wasn't there to sightsee, that wasn't a problem for me.
Divers can take advantage of hot showers, which seem to be a rarity not only in Key Largo. There is a diner next door that serves pretty good food in large portions. The two women I met in the gift shop were perfectly nice and very helpful.
