I joked with Mike that I was not going to write a review because I didn't want his secret to get out. I've been diving for over 30 years and after my recent trip to the keys Sun Sport Charters & Scuba is at the top of my list.

If you're looking for a private charter look no further. Sun Sports if your place to go.

Mike and Kim are gracious hosts that truly seek to make your time with them a lifelong memory that you will cherish. And if you can't remember, don't worry, Mike will capture it on his GoPro and provide you with the videos. The undercurrent here (pun intended) is safety. Mike is extremely thorough about ensuring that you have a safe and fun experience.

Mike has the ability to accommodate 2 - 6 divers and the cost is competitive with large scale operators. The truth is, the large scale operators can't really compete here at all. Mike provides personalized service - what time do you want to go? Where do you want to dive? Do you want Mike to guide you or do you want to go on your own? Want Mike to guide you for a portion of your dive? On a shallow dive and you want to stay down 45, 50, 60, 70 minutes? Stay down as long as you want, just come back with 700 lbs in your tank. You decide all of this because it's your vacation. My advice - leave it to Mike and Kim. They know the area and we had fantastic dives with them.

The only thing I requested that Mike didn't deliver on was fewer clouds in the sky.

It's time to think out of the box. Want to make it a 3 tank dive day instead of 2? No problem. Night dive your thing, great, let's do it. Want to try a dive at 5 AM instead? The keyword here is flexibility.

Mike and Kim make a great team and will go out of their way to customize your experience. We had a great day snorkeling at the reef, only sorry that we didnt have a little more time at the sandbar! A definite A+ recommendation

I can’t say enough great things to completely give this charter justice.

If you’re in the upper Keys and want that special experience to make your trip memorable; you need to book Sun Sports Charter and Scuba.

Scuba, Snorkeling, Spearfishing, Sightseeing, and Sandbar Trips at YOUR time, on YOUR schedule at YOUR pace and YOUR locations.

Don’t waste your time on a crowded and busy cattle boat. You’re in the Keys for a memorable and rewarding experience.
Mike and Kim both provide the personalized service you want and need at its very best.

Mike and Kim provide a wonderful service. This trip was me and my son, who both need a SCUBA refresher. Mike was an excellent divemaster who seamlessly integrated a review of skills with two great dives. Knew where to find interesting creatures and items underwater and very pleasant to hang out with. He is a retired Marine/Army service member. Kim was very hospitable and worked the boat like they were a well-oiled machine, which they are because they have been married for quite a while. Honestly cannot think of a single negative thing to say. Great experience and will do again.
