The premise of a good dive experience is based on feeling secure and well looked after. The crew today were just excellent.
Having sunshine and calm, blue seas also helps, which we had in abundance today.
My 15 yr old son has just qualified in his open water PADI and buddied up with an instructor and two other paying customers. (There's an extra $35 to pay for this option).
He tells me that he had a fab time - rare for a teenager to speak his mind believe me!
Meanwhile, myself, my wife and daughter chose to snorkel off two separate sites - each 1 hourly dives.
i am left with the impression that both dive sites' coral is dying, but there was still an abundance of marine life including; rays, hermit crabs, tarpon, turtles, oh! and nurse sharks!
Thanks though mostly to the crew who did their utmost to ensure we had a fab experience. Thank you so much.

My two sons completed their open water referrals dives with FKDC due to the weather they ended up have Mike and Scuba Joe as instructors. Both were great. FKDC was the only dive store in the area that provided a refresher for my two boys as it had been about 5 months since they did their pool work.

Boats are roomy and run very professionally.

I think we may have been limited to available dive sites due to the weather and having to dive the shallower sites because of the Open Water referral. We did see a lot of sea life and did some nice 45/50 minute dives. The shallower dive trip include snorkelers and divers, not an issue but may also be a reason why the dives are shallower.. The previous year I had dove on Molasses Reef in April and it seemed a little better than the reefs off Islamorada.

All in all great store, great boats and great staff. would definitely recommend them and would use them again when we return the Keys.

Scuba Joe is so passionate about diving and it shows in how he treats everyone.

For instruction Mike and Scuba Joe are awesome!

Staff and Boat were great. Both dives were good locations and rented gear was good. This group lets you dive with a buddy on your own without the help of a dive master. This was great for us since we were experienced, but if you want a more hands on trip, be sure to talk with the staff.

Scuba Joe makes a great day of diving awesome. I wish he was the boat mate on all the trips. ( Keep up the great work)

My wife, son, and I did our Advanced Open Water Certification with Florida Keys Dive Center over the 4th of July weekend.

Zack was fantastic with us. He took the time to go over everything with us and was patient with us as we entered the depths. The boat crew, Captain Carson and Tracey were terrific and made it a fun and enjoyable experience. We did the Horseshoe and Davis Ridge, Eagle, Crocker Canyon, Speigel Grove, and Benwood. Sharks, Rays, Turtles, everything we could have hoped for (yeah, ok, there was learning in there as well). A little nervous making our first deep dive (95' for us, 70' for our son) but it was awesome!

We absolutely would come back again and would recommend them to everyone. Staff all around was very helpful and polite and made the experience one we'll talk about for years.
