“Simply the best in the Keys!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Every trip we've taken to the Florida Keys has been a diving trip with Chris and Jen. However due to my dive buddies ankle surgery, we were heading to the keys, but diving was out. :-( Figuring on just using the time for R&R, we stopped by to at least say hello. While disappointed that we weren't going to dive, Jen and Chris gave us a lot of great suggestions for the area and they all were great. Then they recommended a kayak and snorkel excursion with them. For those that can't dive for one reason or another, take their kayak/snorkel trip. A half day of some of the most unique area that you'll never see from the road or park! We had done this a few days before at Robbie's, however it's like most of the areas activities, they give you a kayak and a map and a few well heeded warnings and off you go. With Sail Fish they have a guide that shows you everything you'd miss since you aren't well versed with the area. Of course, after it all, a CD full of pictures of your excursion, included in the price. You can't go wrong. However, if you are a diver, then there dive trips are just as good. Always guided and included pictures all included in the price. I haven't used my underwater camera down in the keys for three years...and it makes my dives all that much more enjoyable. Yes, we are big fans of Chris and Jen's for over five years now and there's a good reason. They love what they do and they love their customer's. Why else would we follow them throughout their careers and plan are vacations around them! Now that they have settled with their own shop....we've settled with our new yearly vacation spot!

“Service at its best”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

From the time we got there to the time we left, the service was just up there. It was a time of Jelly fishes in the water, and our entire gang was a little sceptical about diving, but Geoge and his team ensured that not only did they put all of us at ease, but also ensured that they actually got all jelly fishes out of our way, maybe getting stung once or twice while doing that.

Had a great time, all paper work and Padi updation was done for us. Thanks guys for a wonderful time. Highly recommend the place, especially for first time divers, given the amount of effort they put in to make you comfortable.

Cheers.

“Best snorkel day ever!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

It was just awesome. We set out for an afternoon with George and Chris, and were taken to amazing reef spots. They focused on getting us in spots without other people around, and knew a ton about each fish we saw. One of the best things is that they take photos of your entire experience, and give you the full CD at the end of the trip. Who else gives you such personal service?

“Whale shark snorkelling and diving with sailfish scuba in Mexico”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Jen and Chris arranged a trip with sailfish scuba to Isla Mujeres, Mexico for one week during the first week of September 2013, and my wife and I were thrilled to be able to join them. Due to family commitments we could only stay for four days with them. Despite this, we were able to fit in two reef dives on the first day, two early am drift dives and two pm twilight and night dives on the second day. The third day was spent snorkelling with whale sharks, a thrilling experience not to be missed! The trip was planned and organized by Jen and Chris , including dives ,great equipment rentals,hotels and restaurant recommendations! Buzos de Mexico was the excellent local dive shop , providing great and friendly dive masters and guides. In addition, Chris,Jen and George, who are all senior instructors as well as Jen and Chris' daughter, Miranda , ( a dive master herself) dove with us on each dive. We were literally outnumbered by experienced , caring dive professionals concerned about overall safety, and were treated to exceptional marine flora and fauna spotting, and a wonderful land and underwater experience.
Pre and post dive activities allowed us to socialize and bond with fellow divers and my wife and I left with fabulous memories and wonderful new friends.
Our comfort, concerns, needs, and satisfaction were personally attended to by Jen, very professionally and as if we were family, or in Key Largo with SFS , above and beyond even that offered by the excellent local scuba outfit. In addition, Jen provided a DVD of photographic souvenirs of our dives and snorkelling prior to leaving for home.
Thank you very much, Jen and Chris, Miranda, and George for sharing your time, energy and joie de vivre with us! Best wishes to Natalie !Gary and Jill!
No better way to snorkel and dive around the world than with Sailfish Scuba.
Look forward to joining you all on future diving expeditions, at and away from Key Largo.

“Snorkeling trip was amazing thanks to this great shop!!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Today we went on our first snorkeling trip ever!
Jenn, Chris, George & Evan gave us a day we will never forget.
They were very professional and friendly!
While in the water Chris really helped me when I was a little bit lost caused by the jellyfish and after a while I was so amazed by everything I saw!
I will certainly return and tell people where to go if they want an experience like I had!
It was all I had hoped and more then I could ever expect!
The pictures your receive are really nice and every paid dollar is more then worth it!
