Since 1977 Quiescence has concentrated on providing it's clientele with an un-crowded and personalized way to enjoy the sport of diving - both scuba diving and snorkeling.

We have three boats here at Quiescence, and each operates with a maximum of six passengers to provide each customer with personalized attention, comfort, and safety. This also gives us the ability to take our divers out to spots not normally visited by divers.

Our charters operate within the Key Largo National Marine Sanctuary, John Pennekamp State Park, and beyond. Each dive location is selected first and foremost by the customer's wishes, supported by recommendations by the Captain as to local conditions.

My husband and I booked our first dives here after completing our Open Water Certification. Excellent communications from Cate with planning and excellent services from everyone in the shop, the very capable boat captain, and knowledgeable guide made it the perfect choice. Our first dive was called due to rough sea conditions, but the subsequent dives made up for it.... More

Quiescence is in a class by itself! Their fundamental mantra is safety first, total enjoyment second. Every boat captain, scuba instructor and guide is dedicated to the diver's safety and total enjoyment of the experience diving in the Florida Keys. We arrived one morning and were given the option of cancelling due to strong winds and high swells. Came back... More

My son and I went on two dives on Tuesday afternoon and we were very impressed! I requested a guide, Chris, who was awesome! Guided with just the right amount of oversight-showing us creatures that we might have otherwise missed! We had arranged to dive today-but because of the seas I decided not to...the shop had no problem and did... More

Weather kept us from diving nQuiescence offered the Enhanced Air PADI class so our time wasn't totally wasted. Instructor moved the class along at our pace. Would take additional classes here.

Having the ocean in our backyard and the Keys just down the road, we recently realized that we don't dive locally nearly as much as we should. Well, that's gonna change.... So we are looking for a dive operation we can give our regular business too. And we might just have found it. Decided to give Quiescence a try. We... More

Start to finish our experience with Quiescence Diving Services was terrific. This outfit was recommended to us by the Underseas Sports Dive Store in Fort Lauderdale (another great outfit). The boats take 6 divers max. The captain was helpful and knowledgeable. For our second dive we enjoyed an hour-long drift dive on Molasses Reef. It was phenomenal! We drifted past... More

Yes, we went to see the Christ! We got all set up, all the equipment was there available for us, it was my first time but that was not a problem at all. We were 4 snorkellers and 2 divers, very small group I would say. The captain (Tim if I remember correctly) took us to two beautiful places, we... More

Finished my OWD referral ocean training dives here: what a great experience! I thought the cost was a bit pricier than competing shops, but the attention was very personal, so it was worth the extra cost. Steve (yes, they call him "Scuba Steve") was the instructor and took a lot of time with each student to make sure we were... More

We dived with this shop for the first time recently and we are huge fans. They run 3 boats with 6 divers max on each boat, which is fantastic since we like to avoid big crowded boats. If you aren't comfortable diving without a divemaster, discuss with the shop as that is the format unless you make other arrangements. We... More

Quiescence came recommended by members of our dive club for good reasons - they feature small boats with 4-6 divers with a covered area and knowledgeable, experienced captain-dive masters. With this size, they can visit sites that are less crowded (More critters! Healthier corals!) - and they give you more personable service. Simply sit on the side of the boat... More
