Owner description: 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.

This is a friendly and professional operation. We recently relocated to area and wanted to get our PADI Open Water Certification. We choose this business because it came highly recommended by other businesses in area and we live local. We opted not to do computer study but to read material and do classroom there. We stopped a few times to look around and to ask questions. Owner Brenda and and one of her instructors, Dan, answered all our questions in such a friendly manner that we decided to do our training with them. Our instructor Mark Birk was a consummate professional. Friendly, experienced, confident and full of patience, Mark guided us through classroom work and tests, into pool for closed water exercises, and then on to the ocean for practice dives and certification. Total time after doing study material, four days. We totally enjoyed the experience, had super dives, and fell ready and competent to enjoy this sport. I will go out of my way to direct prospective divers here. All personnel, their two boats, and dive shop are top notch. I should also mention that we are in our mid 60s and they made us feel like kids again. I would go back and do it again in a heartbeat. If we decide we need refresher or advanced training it will be here. Well done to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dove with them for first time in May. Overall pretty good operation. good equipment and helpful in office. Smaller groups than the usual subjects in Key largo so that was refreshing. However, distance from Molasses and Spiegel Grove make this less than ideal for traveling that far North. If planning to dive up there better to get the ride out of MM100 but these guys have decent sites nearby too.

Did try to set up to get NAUI AOW dives signed off but found out when we got there that the NAUI instructor on staff isn't current with credentials so the ones that needed signed couldn't do any of the dives for credit. Not a real issue, still had a good time.

My boys and I got our first reef dive and wreck dive with Conch Republic Divers. They were and are great. Very easy to work with. I picked up tanks in our boat. That's cool. Their dive boat is awesome. The first mate Dan was cool. The whole shop was great. If your looking for a dive shop this is it. Thanks guys you were great.

This company is wonderful to work with. Their equipment all worked great and the captain took us to two beautiful reefs. We had people of every skill level on the dive with us and they all seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. Friendly staff and knowledgeable too.

They are a great operation. 6 years I have been using them and happy everytime. They are not for everyone and I am happy about that. They are the best dive operation I have used ever.
