“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.”

Florida Keys Dive Center and it’s staff was the best

I have done a lot of traveling over the years and through my travels I have taken various dive courses at various locations through multiple agencies. I can honestly say without any doubt in my mind that Florida Keys Dive Center and it’s staff was the best and I learned the most during my class. True, it was the most intensive course I’ve taken in my dive career, but it was also taught very thouroughly and all my questions were answered. It went above and beyond any of my expectations.

Both Jason and Bert were very professional and were very willing to help us learn. They taught us what we needed to know and if we had any trouble spots they didn’t think twice about taking the time to clarify things and work with us until we were comfortable with our skills.

I’ve taken courses at other dive shops and I never got the impression that the instructors cared about their students as much as the instructors at Florida Keys Dive Center. I felt like my learning and understanding of the material was a priority for them.

I also liked the way they taught us how to teach and not just how to pass the IE like a lot of other dive places sometimes do with their IDC candidates. This way I feel like I am prepared for real life situations since real life doesn’t always follow “standards” and an instructor has to be prepared for anything.

Even though I am through with the IDC I know that I can still ask Jason and Bert questions if I have any and I know they will help me.

Thanks for all the time, effort, and care you put into our IDC to make sure we were prepared so that we are able to go out and teach others the incredible sport of SCUBA!

Best IDC in the Keys

I took my IDC with Florida Keys Dive Center a few months ago and just wanted to extend a big thank you to everyone at the shop. Jason and Bert are incredibly professional course directors and I felt very confident walking into my IE. They spent a lot of one-on-one time with everyone in my class and tailored classes to fit our needs, which may be why our group finished at the top of the class on every part of the exam. I can’t thank them enough for all the time and effort they dedicated to us. Plus, they’re a great cheering section at the exam!

First Recreational Dive

Thank you to Joe and Erin. My son Richard and I completed our Open Water Certification under their supervision and guidance. They are thoroughly professional, excellent instructors. who demonstrated enthusiasm for the sport, excellent group leadership and teaching skills, and safety awareness. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and came away with new skills, excitement and confidence for our first recreational dives.

IDC with Florida Keys Dive Center

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.

Florida Keys Best Dive Sites – Great Experience!!!

Capt. Greg,

Just wanted to let you know Adam and I had a great trip! To quote Arnold Swartenagger (I’ll be back). The attention to detail, knowledge of the area and best dive sites was to say the least impressive. I only wish I had more time.

Happy, Happy….Joy, Joy!!!!

Scuba Diving Charter – Manatee sighting

Hello,

I wanted to thank all the staff and crew for a terrific morning charter on Sunday. We had a wonderful time diving the Eagle and a lovely reef. Then back at the dock we had the luck of watching your local manatee drink water from a hose. That was such a nice surprise bonus to the trip.

Thanks so much for the fun time; we will definitely be back.

Best Regards,

“I recently did my PADI Open water certification….loved the course, felt safe under joe’s and danny’s watchful eyes and would recommend anybody who is interested in getting certified to select this place….well done …..”

Diver Instructor Joe Rocks!!

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!

Forever Grateful,

Dave & Laura Stahl
