Scuba Certified

My two children and I received our SCUBA certification over a 3 day span and it was excellent! Scuba Joe was awesome and very friendly and patient. The crew on the boat was also excellent and very friendly. Never felt scared with Scuba Joe and he is great with young adolescents. An experience we will never forget.

4 Delightful Dives in 2 Days

I loved everything about my 2 days of diving with FKDC: the shop location, the shop itself, the boat, the fabulous crew, the focus on having fun while being safe and taking care of the environment, the equipment, and the variety of the dive sites. Both days of diving were run so well. The crew was wonderfully organized and competent, and they clearly love what they do. I saw so many different types of ocean creatures. I especially loved the abundance of beautiful purple sea fans at one site, the friendly group of nurse sharks at another, and the abundance of moray eels and puffer fish at another. Cory, Ronnie, Tracey, Zach, Carsten, and Scuba Joe, I’m so happy I get to look forward to diving with you all at FKDC again this December

Snorkeling with the Divers

We had a great time and It was interesting to snorkel with the Divers. We didn’t expected it but we didn’t mind it . It felt more professional and serious than other Snorkeling trips we have done. Zak and Tracy were very careful and professional and they also seem very knowledgeable . I might even get into diving after this trip

Great trip!

Had a great trip on the big dipper. Awesome staff, very friendly and helpful. Zach was our dive guide and we had a blast with him! He was so personable, funny and was an excellent dive buddy, pointing things out that we would’ve never noticed and giving us fun facts about all of the aquatic animals we saw, giving us tips and tricks to become a better diver, etc. Overall, everyone was extremely friendly and fun to be around. We will definitely be booking more dives through the Florida Keys Dive Center in the future. Thanks so much for an amazing experience!

Completed open water certification

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.”
