Completed open water certification with Joe and Sara as instructors. I found both instructors to be exceptionally competent in their knowledge and instruction. Sara is great at instilling the confidence you need as you move along with your skills and Joe is a good teacher – making sure you get what you need in order to be competent in the water. Can’t wait to get back to the FKDC and dive in again!
“Very enlightening class. A very professional and friendly staff at FKDC, which is a direct reflection of the Course Director and management of FKDC. The class was well organized and thorough. All areas of standards and teaching methods were covered very well and easy for us to understand. Thanks for a great course!”

“Thanks! I have not studied so hard since medical school. What an experience!! The course content was sometimes boring, but your unique style of teaching made it come alive and made us want to learn. You kept us on the ‘edge’ of our chairs wanting to learn more. Thanks for a great learning experience that I will never forget.”

They are thoroughly professional, excellent instructors. who demonstrated enthusiasm for the sport, excellent group leadership and teaching skills, and safety awareness.

My wife & I completed our 4 open water dives this week to complete our open water scuba cert. YAHOO!!! I am a stroke survivor, with some physical challenges, Joe very patiently reviewed all the required skills and guided us along the course to this very significant achievement! He was challenged with my limitations, and met every hurdle with his great CAN DO ATTITUDE. Considering the amount of skills testing we covered, I never felt rushed or hurried. Capt Greg was very helpful with the water entries & exits, and his local knowledge was very informative. We were lucky that the other students on the boat were good people. Thanks, buddies! & we wish Florida Keys Dive Center!

My son and I recently completed our wreck and Nitrox PADI certifications with Joe. He is an excellent instructor and thorougly reviewed all of the required skills. We had a great time diving on the Spiegel Grove, Duane, Eagle and Benwood, as well as the reefs. The staff and crew at Florida Keys Dive Center are a great group and very safety orientated. You will not be disappointed!

Special thanks for the encouragement to get me through my recent open water certification. I was ready to give up and Captain Tom and John gave me the courage I needed to succeed. The dive crew is very helpful and I will definitely be back!
