We can't find you guys and we are sad. We will be there in Feb. 2016 We really had our hearts set on going out with you guys again. You guys are the best. I heard you would be gone for a while. We hope to hear from you soon.

We chose this charter out of many in the first keys. Man was our pick a good one and if ever diving around tjere again it's with these guys. The service and dive knowledge was top notch. Throw in the friendly people that took us out and the laid back environment it was awesome!!

After I read the fabulous reviews about this diving club (excellent and individualised service etc) I was very interested in booking an AOW course for my boyfriend and 3 entire dive days for myself. I contacted Akadiving directly on their website at the beginning of July 2014. No answer. Maybe they did not received the email from their website? I... More

Sorry, we have suffered a great loss in the family and as a result we are temporally closed and out of the state. Please call Conch Republic Divers in Tavernier or Rainbow Reef in Key Largo for diving or instruction, these are both great dive operations and very close to us, we trust them with our family and customers.

This is a long overdue review. I've had a chance to dive with AKA Diving in April of 2013 when I was visiting Miami Beach. Choosing to spend my one day off diving with AKA was the best choice I took that vacation. I was greeting by friendly and professional staff, the dive experience was good despite of less than...

David called to let us know there would be waves. three of us chose to go ahead with diving since the surface chop would not affect the dive itself. Our 2 snorkelers stayed home. The heads up was very much appreciated and convinced us we were in good hands even before we met David. David has a great boat, the... More

We recently charted a dive trip with AKA and had several excellent dives including the Eagle. David showed us great customer service as he guided us on 3 wonderful dives. He ensured that we remained safe as he pointed out the various sea life on the reefs. I would gladly recommend AKA Dive Charter to anyone. I especially liked the... More

A group of five of us recently had a 1day+ layover in MIA. We wanted to dive, but knew time was tight to be able to pull of diving while getting sufficient top time before flying. One of our guys had received his rescue certification w/ AKA last summer, so he called Dave up when we landed. By time we... More
