We booked a trip in January 2017 with Key West Dive Center. While the weather caused some cancelled dives due to winds and rain, the dives we did do with the company were really fun and excellent. I appreciated and liked the the instructor who gave me a refresher course, Kelsey and took us out diving afterwards.

We booked a scuba trip to the Vandenberg through this outlet. Unfortunately the Key West Dive Center appears to be only a broker and our dive trip was cancelled the night before because an insufficient number signed up for the day we wanted to dive. I suggest dealing directly with Southpoint Divers instead. They are a good outfit and were... More

We booked a scuba trip to the Vandenberg through this outlet. I'm not sure if this is the dive shop or not. I think this is simply a broker. Our trip went as planned, except the cost of the dive computer was quoted incorrectly at $10 when we had to pay $15 upon checkin. I have no complaints. The company... More

As a Florida resident, I understand that it is illegal for ANY vendor or tour operator to sell any attraction as a dolphin swim. Floridians love their wildlife and try to protect it as much as possible. Although I can understand the frustration the dude below must have felt when he realized he wasn't getting off the boat to swim... More

Just dove twice with this shop. The check in was very easy. You then have to drive to Stock Island to the marina to get to the boat. The nice part about that is that they give you a pass to the Key West Marina Club which has showers, bar, pool, etc. That was very good for after the dives.... More

I will say the dive masters and boat captain were excellent and gave great service and were very helpful. I am used to there being a divemaster guiding the dive. Everyone was on their own and just were told to be back on the boat at a specific time. Not knowing the area I would have preferred to have a... More

My wife and I took a trip to Key West and inquired about diving the Vandenburg. I told them my wife is open water certified and I am a PADI certified Divemaster. My wife, with me, has numerous dives to 100'. They told me I could not take her by myself and would have to hire a guide to dive... More

My wife and I are on our 7-year anniversary trip (the 3 kids are with the grandparents!!!) and our only scuba experience was in Cancun on our honeymoon. We loved diving in Cancun with the resort course (a bit ghetto but..) and loved diving in Key West too. The Key West Dive Center does the morning pool dive at the... More

I booked the snorkel adventure through these guys and very misleading. I would not use them again. They are a broker and not the actual tour operator. Very confusing and took 3 phone calls to get the right information as to where to go to get on the boat. Once there we discovered it was actually run by another outfitter.... More
