Conch Republic Divers offers primarily private and semiprivate instruction....

Conch Republic Divers offers primarily private and semiprivate instruction. We do not try to be the fastest around or the cheapest-especially for the basic open water class. It is our approach that you get scuba certified once and you might as well do it right!That said, I believe our price is competitive. At the end of your course you will have a dive table and a log book. Our instructors are patient and thorough and have been diving for years.After scuba diving you'll also like our private warm water showers with dressing area. Plus dedicated internet access for checking your email.Come join our captains and crew and let us provide you with a scuba diving adventure while enjoying other activities the Florida Keys has to offer. Staying in Key Largo or Islamorada, Tavernier is only a few miles to go to have some of the best scuba diving while in the Florida Keys.

Wonderful experience with Conch Republic Divers. This was my first visit to CRD and I will definitely return. I booked with them for 4 trips over the course of a week and was not disappointed at all. Pre-trip departures were organized, and they jumped in to offer assistance with gear and tank setup, if desired. Guides were knowledgeable, and kept... More

Gary, Brenda and their staff are freindly, informed, competent, and know the best spots on the reef, and the best wrecks. Excellent base for Keys diving.

My husband and I had a wonderful time with Conch Republic. Mark and Jason were great. They explained the dive, what areas were the best to go to on the reef and wrecks and were very helpful getting you back on the boat. For our first ocean dive we couldn't have asked for a better company to go with. We... More

I recently dove 2 days with Conch Republic with my cousin. Brenda, one of the owners, was extremely friendly and helpful. We had initially signed up for both morning and afternoon dives on a Saturday, but after the first morning dive (choppy with a strong current) we didn't feel up to diving again. Brenda anticipated this and did not charge... More

i found these guys to be less than professional, unfortunately. the dive briefing was poorly executed. there was no drawing, only verbal, and he indicated with his hands we were to swim downstream, then back to the boat. then he said not to be stupid and end up in cuba. why it wasn't a drift dive in such strong current...

We took 2 separate dive trips (4 dives) with Conch Republic. They were extremely professional from beginning to end. Brenda set us all up with a simple phone call and helped get us all the equipment we needed including letting my daughter use her personal skins. We rented their equipment which was top notch - much better quality then I... More

I live in Miami and dive the Florida Keys often. Every time my friends and I go to Islamorada, we always dive with Conch Republic. Great staff, beautiful boats, and lots of great wrecks to dive!

I have used Conch Republic several times when visiting Florida Keys to go diving and have always been with them. As always Conch Republic went out of their way to make my vacation great. I would highly recommend Conch Republic. They will let you dive your profile and not micromanage your dives. Not many divers during week and Conch Republic... More
