We had an awesome time! Captain Jason is hilarious and an excellent captain, and Charley was one of the best DM's... we've dove with. She's a true pro in crisis. We had someone on our ship run out of air in tricky conditions and she never panicked, while making sure the rest of us had a great dive. We'll definitely be back!read more

Thanks for all the support while our family dove with you! First time with you and may it not be our last. Our girls... were able to go on their own with your capable staff while we dealt with our own gear issues. All in all a fun and encouraging environment on the boat and in the water. we caught several lobster with the help of your crew spotting them for us on their scooter. loads of fun! the group of spear fishermen got their dinner too. Capt Jason is a riot! .read more

Really enjoyed the environment of this dive shop and the positive perspective of the employees! Some highlights of my... experience:I was greeted cheerfully when I arrived, all the staff was very friendly and accomodating! Eric, Matt, Captain Jason, Scuba Joe are all very knowledgeable and have your safety and happiness in mind!! Captain Jason has a great personality that really lives up the experience! The boat was clean and well organized!I really liked how they setup the boat and divers equipment before they let you on. I feel like this allows them to efficiently and effectively setup without chaos. The double dip on the Duane was fantastic - saw a few plump lady bullsharks, slayed a few lionfish! Even though me and my dive buddy may have dipped into deco briefly - we were NOT chastised or yelled at (Oops - won't happen again, I promise!) It was really nice to experience a new dive shop with good vibes, positive attitudes and friendly crew. I highly recommend this dive shop on your next visit to the Keys!read more

Each instructor we had was very knowledgeable and made our experience a blast!

I'm not one who usually complains, but what's up with me calling your center today at 4:03pm to make sure we didn't... need our own lights for the night dive with a 5:30pm check-in and getting "oh...we were just about to call you..." TO CANCEL? I mean I get that we were the only two left because someone cancelled and that there's no money in taking only two people out, but now I have zero chance to reschedule anything and I even offered to pay more to try to make it a private charter.I had another company say they could've done a private charter "if we'd had more notice". And THAT is the crux of my complaint. We are expected to give days of notice in order to get our money back and there's no refund for less than 24 hours notice. Does that mean that you guys knew about this for more than a day and didn't even so much as give me a heads up? Or did the others cancel just today and you kept their money and still didn't take us out?This is a special father-son graduation trip and we fly out on Sunday, so our options to get in a night dive now are NIL. I'm very disappointed for my son and in your company.read more

I can’t say enough good things about my daughters experience here! They were so helpful and really great to work with.... Her instructors were Jake and Zach. Jake worked with her (and Dad who was doing refresher) the first day in the pool and spent so much time, he made it fun, really built her skills and her confidence. Her first open water dive with Zach the next day went great! She had Jake for day 3 again and he greeted us with enthusiasm making it fun for us all to be there. I got to go along as a “bubble watcher” and got to know the whole crew. Jake took her through all the steps she needed to get her certification done. He hustled around getting both of them ready - Dad had the go-pro from the dive shop for some great pictures and videos below the surface. It was a great day and a huge thank you to the entire team at the dive center - especially to her instructors and to Jake for making it an amazing experience she won’t forget!read more

My daughter and I had never been to the Keys but we wanted to get scuba cert. and so we just came with no references or... direction. I googled and found FKDC and booked. Although the weather didnt cooperate, our instructor Jake made it a ton of fun! His coworker Zach also helped a ton to make sure our group was well served! He was super patient with me and others in his class that struggled a bit(my daughter is good at everything 🙄). When getting our cert, we got to see multiple other guides/instructors from other companies. I truly think we got lucky when we chose this co. But I did notice, it’s all about the guides! Ours seemed by far to be the most attentive and we’re having the most fun! We just got our cert today and we’re already planning our next trip back!read more

Captain Tim is a fantastic and attentive boat captain. The first day Zack was the dive leader and Jake was the mate. On day two they switched rolls.

First off: a disclaimer. I worked for Florida Keys Dive Center for the past year running social media, creating videos... of our beautiful reefs and other "inside engineering tasks". I also mated the boat, guided divers, and occasionally led courses. My time at FKDC (Flakeys) is coming to an end and I would like to leave my honest, unbiased review of my time there.As many of you know, diving down in the Keys leaves you with MANY options of dive shops to pick from. You could go up north out of Key Largo, down south out of lower Islamorada, or somewhere in between.. Like us! The location of FKDC is truly unique and is one of the many reasons I recommend diving with them. Located at mile-marker 90, FKDC can reach as far south as Alligator Reef and as far north as Dry Rocks (if for some reason you really wanted an hour and a half boat ride). The store, dock, and boats are all located at the same location This provides easy access when moving gear and last minute changes. The boats themselves are top of the line. Expertly maintained by Captain Carsten, Captain Tom, Captain Tracy, and Cory, the company takes pride in providing the cleanest, smoothest, and most comfortable ride possible to the reefs. The REAL differentiator of this shop though is the staff. Inside, you have Pam and Tom with a combined experience of 60 years' in the industry. They know that customer service, safety, and professionalism are the keys (haha) to succeeding. The boat staff include Cory, Tracy, Joe, and Ronnie. These instructors have VAST backgrounds that enable them to teach you with care, safety, and friendliness that you will not get at any other dive shop. Some instructors have spent years in conservation efforts all around the world while others have trained in the smallest caves you can dive in. All of this amounts to instructors who will go above and beyond to give you the best experience you can possibly have on a dive in the keys - in the safest way possible. Downsides? Being a smaller shop occasionally means that they will not have enough people to send a boat out. While this is frustrating if you are planning a trip, they ensure that they will do everything in their effort to call around and get you out with another reputable dive shop. I have done this first hand and can tell you that we take our customers trips very seriously. I wouldn't want to come down and be told there's no trip either!Overall, I honestly believe that FKDC is the premier diving experience in the Florida Keys. The years of experience is there, the staff genuinely care, and the business itself is top notch. I am highly grateful for my time at FKDC and would recommend it to anyone. Heck, this is where I took MY parents! If anyone has any questions about my time at FKDC I am happy to answer them! Thanks for reading and happy diving!read more

I had an amazing time receiving my diving certification with FKDC. Cory Dam, our instructor, was not only an amazing... teacher but also a really nice, funny guy. Gave us so many restaurant/bar/activity recommendations for the area and always made sure we were safe and having fun on our dives. He also gave me a tube of reef safe sunscreen which I desperately needed on the boat. Speaking of, their boat crew was fantastic and provided fresh fruit after our dive. Very friendly, awesome divers. If I'm back in Key Largo to dive, I'm definitely diving again with Florida Keys Dive Center! Thanks! 👏read more

we have had such a great time with Florida Keys Dive Center! We had done several snorkel trips and decided to get the... family SCUBA Certified. Corey was excellent with our two daughters (10&11). He was super patient, and very good at teaching all of us. I felt very confident that he was making sure the girls were safe and comfortable while we had our lessons and open water dives. We also just did our first ocean dive and the whole boat crew was great! Everyone was friendly and made sure we had a great time! Corey was our dive guide and he made sure we were all safe as well having fun! I knew my girls were in good hands and my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy the experience!read more

I highly recommend Florida Key Dive Center to both beginners and experts. They are very professional and organized,... meaning you spend less time waiting around and more time diving and enjoying your vacation. We did an Advanced Open Water certification with instructors Cory and Brad over Memorial Day. They went the extra mile for us to make sure we got all of our required dives in even though the weather didn’t cooperate. They changed sites several times and they reshuffled their schedules for us to get in the final dive we needed on the last day. The boat Captains, Martin and Tom, were seasoned pros and made everyone feel at home on their boat. We had the best experience and we will definitely dive with them whenever we are in S. FL.read more

I highly recommend getting certified with the Florida Keys Dive Center. Just recently I got certified through their... dive program and had a great experience! I went to the Keys with a group of students from University School of Nashville from the marine biology club. At first, I was a little nervous not knowing exactly what to expect. A friend of mine was having a panic attack at the surface of the water and our dive master, Scuba Joe, knew exactly what to do. I talked with her afterward and she was so thankful that he was able to help her because otherwise, she wouldn’t have gone under the water. Another friend was having problems equalizing and he was helping her figure out a way to get it to work. He was so patient and wanted to ensure that everyone felt safe and comfortable in the water. I was having extreme problems with seasickness and Scuba Joe bent over backward to ensure that it would not stop me from getting certified. I, unfortunately, had to skip the second check out dive because I was feeling so bad. I was worried that I had lost the chance to get certified. But the next day Scuba Joe had already made a plan for how he would fit in the extra dive for me. He did all that he could to minimize my seasickness by having me as one of the first off the boat and one of the last to get back on. There was one point during the dives when I had a very hoggy mask. When the dive was over one of Scuba Joe’s priorities was to get my mask to stop fogging. Our group had a rocky start but were able to get everything working smoothly with his help. So so thankful for him and putting all of the divers before himself and making it a time that was purely amazing!! The entire crew was so supportive, especially Joe, to all drivers who were attempting their certification. They were willing to be flexible in their plans for safety and well being for all the people who were on their boat. Their rental gear is high quality and never failed. They have a great system for their gear and take good care of it. Their boats are clean and nice. The dive sites we went to were incredible particularly Pickle Reef. The Florida Keys Dive Center allowed me and many of my friends to have an absolutely wonderful time diving. If considering to get certified or just have some fun dives they are an excellent group and I am so glad I got my first diving experience with them!!!read more

Wow wow wow, what a great place to scuba dive with. The staff was amazing, they were very attentive to safety and... focused on providing an excellent experience to their guests. My wife and I did our 4 open water dives for certification with them, and Scuba Joe was our instructor he was amazingly patient with my wife and myself. He really took the time to explain safety aspects of diving, and the rationale for what we we’re doing. Scuba Joe and the crew had us so comfortable by the end of the 2 days/4 dives, we came back the next day for 2 more. Each dive was a new experience, with interesting points. Sites were selected based on safety in water conditions combined with the sites of best interest. They really took the time to make sure we were comfortable. Also, I was looking to buy regulator and BCD, the owner Captain Tom and Scuba Joe, went above and beyond allowing us to try equipment to make an educated decision, without pressuring us to buy anything. I will definitely be diving with Flordia Keys Dive Center again. If you are looking for a fun safe crew to be on a boat and dive with this is it. Well worth the time and money.read more

Very unsafe dive practices. Two dives, both reefs about a 5 minute boat ride apart. Put in the water and were told to... be back in an hour or when air is at 700. Came back late because we were given no guide, no offer of a guide, and had never been diving in the area so didn’t know it at all. So unsafe. When we made it back the captain was upset with us then after the 5 minute boat ride were told to hop immediately back into the water. Again. So unsafe. Over priced, unsafe diving, no effort to go to two different dive sites. Do yourself a favor and look into another company.read more

Had a great weekend diving with FKDC. Captain Carson and mate Brad did an excellent job on the boat. The captain was... able to find the Atlantic Ocean and all the wrecks and reefs. The weather was a bit bumpy, but we got out there without a problem. Brad kept busy filling everyone’s tank orders (80s, 100s, 40s, air, nitrox) and provided o-ring service on demand. He also helped us up the ladder and escorted people out o their seats. He had so much fun with us, he joined us for another day. After the second dive each trip, fresh pineapple and oranges were provided. Except the one day Brad forgot them. Bad Brad. In the shop Yvonne was a pleasure to coordinate the trip. I happily recommend FKDC!read more

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.read more

I’ve been with them several times and I really like them, hence why I keep going back. Everything within the facilities... is conveniently located and close, so you don’t have to walk long distances with all the scuba equipment. Parking lot is just big enough for the facility.. not too big but I’ve never had a problem finding a spot. The ladies at the front desk are really nice and the second time I went in they already remembered me and expressed how happy they were to see us come back. The boats are good too.. bathroom not too clean but can’t expect much more from a public scuba boat lol. They don’t have a lot of staff so every time you go back you’re received by familiar and friendly faces. Dive sites are designated in advance but don’t be surprised if they change locations on diving day due to bad weather/currents. Love them. Will keep going back.read more

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!!!read more

The service felt rush with substandard customer service. The two assistants to the captain, or first and second mate,... were pretentious and advised patrons not to write a review if they had something negative to say. I had actually booked my dive trip with a different company but they encountered issues with their boat. I was In and out of the water in 30 minutes for each dive. No pre-brief or disclosure of dive sites. Now to the most important detail - the dive: we went to two unknown sites. The corals and marine diversity was average, the dive instructor lost sense of location at some point and we stayed within a 40 meter radius from the boat. Overall the keys has a much richer biodiversity but I did not get to see it. Get in get out was the overall impression I left with, and it is my least favorite dive by far out of 20. In conclusion, monotonous sites and impersonal service makes me not recommend this place for a Keys diving adventure.read more

We have been diving with FKDC for several years now. We do an annual January trip from Ohio when it's a bit slow down... there and seas get a little rough. FKDC always tries to accommodate our dive plans whether deep, shallow or at night. We store our gear in a locker between trips which is so great and they also offer multi trip discounts. I don't rent gear but from what I have seen, the rental equipment is very well maintained. There's lots of dive shops in the area but this one it top notch.read more

When I travel, always rely on local knowledge or advice from other travellers on where to dive. A fellow traveller... recommended Florida Keys Dive Centre. The centre is conveniently located, free parking and literally a 20 metre walk from car to boat... Staff / workers are friendly and helpful and can't do enough to ensure your trip is comfortable and safe. Modern boats, not over crowded like other operators... I returned for 3 days diving and would recommend them to any novice and experienced diverread more
