this is the number one place in the upper keys to go diving their equipment is fantastic the captains and the crew are great and their instructors are the best a real friendly place to be and some amazing diving
Our trip was originally planned for Saturday, but the waves were too choppy so it was canceled. We got to go today (Monday).The Captain and crew were SO fun and informative. The current was SUPER strong at our first stop (pleasure reef) so they put out a line for the snorkeling folks to hold on to. They had eyes on us the whole time, and were quick to offer helpful advice and a helping hand. We saw a wide variety of fish and other creatures, and the crew was excited and quick to tell us quick trivia about the species we encountered. The second stop was so much easier to swim in (shark ledge), my eight year old even handled it like a champ (after a pep talk with the Captain and Morgan with several “GO LILLIAN!” calls from Morgan while we were in the water.) They had fresh, cold water on board and a large ice chest for customers food and drinks, and then they cut up fresh oranges and pineapple after our last stop. I could not possibly recommend this trip more. I may have the names of the stops wrong but OH MY GOSH it was fun. Do it. Bring cash for tips, they’ll deserve them.
Excellent service all around. The crew of the Big Dipper were awesome. Will be happy to back with them again.
Given all of the choices you have for dive centers in the keys, it can be almost impossible to hit it right without recommendations. It’s thanks to others taking the time to write about Florida keys dive center that we picked it for our son to do his advanced diving and photography qualification...that and the wonderful and very helpful lady who took my phone call. We were blessed to have scuba joe work with our son, and I felt so confident leaving him in Joes capable hands. The quality, friendliness, safety, and support he was give over the three days was fabulous. In short, a wonderful experience and we will be back for subsequent courses and fun dives.
The 4 Down Divers group spent two days with Florida Keys Dive Center and had a great experience. Each member having btw 6 and 8 dives. All the dives were distinct and enjoyable. The Crew and dive master were friendly and knowledgeable.
Great job by scuba Joe , Carson and Duke. I finished my open water certification with Scuba Joe who is an excellent instructor. I plan to go back to my local dive shop in New Jersey and strongly recommend Florida keys Dive center and scuba Joe for anyone who wants to do their own water certifications down here in the keys!
Great friendly people with a perfect location right on the water. Easy check in for a snorkel tour and we're on the reef after a short 20 minute boat ride. It was a choppy day but still saw lots of fish. So beautiful.
We had a great day of diving and lobstering with the Florida Keys Dive Center, completing the Underwater Hunter and Collector cert with the help of the excellent dive educator scuba Joe Nunns!
Absolutely great! I had such a good time both diving and hanging out on the boat. We went to conch wall , which is a beautiful spot. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
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.
