WELCOME to the fabulous Florida Keys, with America's only Continental living coral reef. The Middle Florida Keys is one of the world's most versatile and breathtaking dive destinations. You will be in awe of the wonderous sights below. So much so, you will want to stay down forever. A Deep Blue Dive Center, located in the city of Key Colony Beach, invites you and your family to dive or snorkel off "Turtle", a roomy 34 ft., six-passenger-maximum dive vessel equipped with a fresh water shower. Keep your eyes open for a dolphin or turtle on the 30 minute ride back to the dock. We have a complete line of SCUBA and snorkel gear for sale or rent. Or just stop by to get info on where the locals go.

My husband and I had the great fortune of running into Alan from the dive center when we stayed at the Tranquility Bay Resort. He rented us a boat to tour the area on our own, we were a little nervous at first, but with Alan's thorough explanation we felt at ease. He steered us toward some incredible sights, we... More

We decided last moment to book this afternoon snorkeling trip with "A deep blue dive center" for our family of 6 and we didn't regret it. For all of us it was the 1st time we went out on a snorkeling trip. We were lucky that we had the boat for the six of us, the trip out to the... More

Very friendly and accommodating crew together with a high quality dive boat. Highly interactive with all guest on the boat spanning a wide range from snorkelers to divers. Reef is one of the best in the keys and provides a perfect spot for both snorkelers and scuba. Tons of fish and coral. Enjoy and be safe.

We had a great day of snorkeling with Melissa as our guide. Saw lots of wildlife/fish including a pair of sea turtles. Would definitely recommend this company. They were great about calling and confirming. Could not ask for a better time.

I had a good experience getting my certification at this dive shop. I looked at 3 total dive shops around marathon, this shop was the most professional and safest shop out of them all. My instructor was James Weber, the best instructor I could have has. He was incredibly competent, thorough and babied me through the challenges I had. Anyone... More

Reserved a spot for group of 5 to go snorkeling. Too many people in the boat had to stand the whole trip out to the reef. Passed out gear, in my opinion they just had snorkeling gear you would use around the pool or lake. Didn't have blow up jackets used noodles to hold you up instead. The crew wasn't... More

Just had a great time and just what we needed. Friendly staff in the shop and our Captain Melissa, was amazing. Went out on 'Turtle' and had the boat to ourselves. Melissa was so attentive, informative, helpful, tolerant of our 3 lively teenager children and just a lovely person. Can't recommend this enough

Was calling around to various dive shops to put together my 14 year old's first post certification dive. The Deep Blue Dive Center staff was knowledgeable and accommodating, and unlike Abyss the staff member answering my questions didn't seem either bored or harried. The dive boat was large, and we only had my family of five on board (three Scuba,... More

Great Dive shop with very friendly staff and very helpful in renting some dive equipment for us to be able to dive the Thunderbolt while we were staying in Marathon. A lot of dive shops have chips on their shoulders but not this one. Made us feel welcomed and we would definitely go back to rent gear from them the... More

Not the guests... The crew! Seemed like the lady captain and helper were more into each other than their customers. Didn't help anyone out of the water, talked about their upcoming deep water rescue training(to each other). At least the reef we went to was nice, even though the crew stayed on the boat and didn't point out any highlights... More
