USATourist.com now allows you to book diving expeditions through Florida Keys Dive Center. In business for over 24 years, they're located in the Keys about 70 miles from the Miami International Airport.

Whether you are diving, snorkeling or just joining us for the ride, you'll find that our staff is highly trained and friendly, our boats are state of the art and roomy and our facilities first class. Come join us to see some of the most spectacular reefs, awesome wrecks and beautiful fish life found in the upper Keys, from Key Largo all the way through to Islamorada.

Your journey begins when you step off our Dock and onto one of our three custom dive boats. You’ll find that each of our boat has all the comforts to make your experience enjoyable and memorable. Our newest boat, which just came into service in June, is a custom Newton 46, the premier charter boat in the industry. It’s 46 feet long and 16 feet wide and has a seated sun deck which translates into spaciousness and comfort. It also has fresh water showers, camera care facilities, fresh drinking water, cooler, large diving area with two large ladders for easy exit and entry. And, we serve fresh fruit for the trip back to the dock.

Florida Keys Dive Center is conveniently located with just a five-minute ride to the ocean past pelican lined trees, lumbering iguanas and an occasional Manatee. Hang out under our Tiki Hut and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere before or after your diving. Our facility includes convenient storage lockers just a few feet away from the boats for ease of equipment loading and prepping. Our shop is equipped with all your diving equipment and accessory needs.

Diving Requirements

For a one or two tank dive, you must have at least a basic or Open Water certification from a recognized training agency. You must also have a logged dive within the last two years. If you haven't been on a dive in the last year or have no ocean experience, we recommend hiring a dive guide. If it’s been more than two years since your last dive, a one-day scuba review is recommended.

Discover Scuba Diving --- $175 all inclusive

Arrive in the morning with your swimsuit and be diving off reefs in the afternoon!

The Discover Scuba Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of a PADI Instructor in ideal conditions, such as those found at a resort. During your adventure, you’ll master some basic concepts and scuba skills before heading off on an open water dive.

Your open water dive takes you as deep as 12 meters (40 feet)! The Discover Scuba Diving experience is a great way to get a head start on your PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification. That’s because the skills you complete during your adventure may credit these certification levels.

To participate in the Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 10 years old.
