Florida Keys Dive Center recently celebrated 29 years in business on May 10th!
A special thank you goes out to everyone who wished us a happy birthday and to everyone who has helped us and been there for us in these 29 years.
We never could have made it this far and become such a success if it wasn’t for the support of our friends, family, and fellow divers and snorkelers.
Thanks again from Tom, Pam, and the staff of Flakeys(:

We took a trip out to “Spankey’s” and Capt. Pete’s Reef yesterday. What an amazing afternoon of diving! Great visibility and tons of life. 7 nurse sharks on Pete’s and some beautiful life at “Spankey’s”. The grunts were so heavy at Pete’s you could barely see parts of the reefs. Congratulations to Joe B. from Canada on earning his PADI Open Water certification.
As an instructor with another agency, I recently completed a crossover IDC with Florida Keys Dive Center. The entire staff makes you feel like family from the moment you walk in the door. Everyone was knowledgeable of the entire operation and bent over backwards to help with everything. The two course directors, Jason and Bert, were outstanding. They made the process painless and FUN. They instilled confidence in all candidates with their professionalism. During the IDC, there was even time built in for a pleasure dive aboard the Big Dipper. Their skill and knowledge of the PADI system made the crossover easy and simple. By the end of the IDC, you felt confident as the IE approached. The days were long, the evenings studying even longer, but the rewards were worth it!!! Many thanks to Jason, Bert and the entire staff at Florida Keys Dive Center for an outstanding experience in a warm friendly environment.
When you're a new diver, it can be a little bit intimidating at first with all the new things you are expected to learn. At least it was for me, especially when we started discussing the science and math aspects of diving.
