    5 star review  My group went on five dives with the Florida Keys Dive Center and had a great time. The dive boats are large with plenty of room to store gear and move around. The staff was super friendly and helped in so many ways to make the dive experience fantastic. I highly recommend diving with these folks.

    5 star review  When I was a 13 year old little punk kid in Queens, NY my grandparents got me into scuba diving to keep me outta trouble. I'm turning 40 next month and out of all those years of diving I've been diving in the Florida Keys for 16 of them. The FKDC shop, boat, and more importantly instructors, (one in particular that I'll get to later) were a game changer for me. I'm rescue certified, so while my gf was getting certified for open water diver I found myself with 2 days to kill. Turned to Google, ended up researching Hunter and Collector classes that were actually legitimate classes, with a legitimate syllabus, and a certification at the end of it. It lead me to Florida Keys Dive Center and........... SCUBA JOE! As you're reading this, those of you who have been on dive boats know the crew can make it an okay dive or a real fun, one to remember dive. Scuba Joe was a game changer. The other crew members were all great, had there insertion of corny dive jokes and puns that you get basically everywhere, they were very good, Scuba Joe was GREAT. He stands out from the crowd for sure. Mention to the staff, the woman behind the counter was so sweet, knowledge, and courteous. I actually watched her give TWO dive watches away for free to customers there that day with there young kids! And the younger marine who was the first mate for the day was awesome too. Scuba Joe looks salty with experience and he IS salty as hell..... he got my respect from the get go when he revealed strong marine life conservation ethics......and the fact that he's rapidly approaching 4000 dives!!! As far as instructor skill set, I've personally been an instructor for 6 years and I deal with a lot of strong and different personalities, so I'm familiar with having to teach different personalities, and I can tell right away Scuba Joe can teach, he can seriously drop some scuba knowledge on you no matter what your personality may be. The only thing that was actually more impressive then his classroom skill set, was getting to see him in action in the blue. This guy is a divers diver. From 1 logged dive to 1000 logged dives, no matter what your experience is he'll show you some new things. My finger hurts so I'm gonna wrap this up. From now on my dive trips to Key Largo / Tavernier, will be with Scuba Joe and FKDC. So that I'm no overly positive I will mention some constructive criticism..... For the older, taller, tanner boat captain, (forget the name), try to lighten up a bit.... Yeah yeah, we all know you're in a super serious position and ultimately responsible for all our lives and safety but you can "keys it up" a bit and not be so robotic..... But you're one hell of a good captain, so pretty please don't leave me out on the reef on my next trip!! This operation is a solid 5 outta 5!!!
