As a newbie diver, our first experience in Key Largo was terrible. A tiny boat that barely looked seaworthy, a staff that acted inconvenienced by our presence, no warning that we were heading out in 6 ft waves... Overall a bad way to get started...More

Diving in Key West leaves little to be desired. It's just not worth the money and time. There isn't as much to see as in Largo. It was very murky. The crew was ok, although they weren't as attentive as other places.
