Heading to Key Largo in the beginning of October and was wondering if anyone can recommend a good place to dive with? Also looking to do some training. Thanks!

I use Conch Republic and Ocean Divers.

Ocean Divers.

Great bunch of people and an excellent training facility.

I have to say Oceandivers. Just give Joe a call. 1-800-451-1113 I can’t say enough about the operation. I think I did in my IDC blogs. I do have a fondness for the Mojitos at Shakey’s.

That would be Sharkey’s

I do training in Key Largo! I just opened up my own little operation in fact. Check it out: I work with most of the shops down here, so let me know if you need any info.

Ocean Divers!

Just finished my Dive Master there Georgia the Course Director/Instructor is by far the best I have ever had in 10 years of diving. 

You cant go wrong heading there.

I would also recommend OceanDivers.

It’s the only place I dove with when I was there...well run and felt safe diving with the guys. You can stay right next door (forgot the name of the place) but makes it nice to just have to walk right down a few hundred feet and jump aboard the boat. I will be back.

Have fun.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply! You have made it a very easy choice.

Conch Republic divers is a great boat and crew, I have also been out with ocean divers but did not like 20 other divers on my dive site so I started going with Conch Republice Divers and I really like them. :) I also like Silent World when I am looking for a six pack boat.

I agree with Gypsy! Ocean Divers!

Have fun!

I am probably the only one who found that "Its a dive" is great and has a great staff. Go to They are on mile mark, southbound 103 in the Marriott hotel. Great place to dive with. Have fun!

Ocean Divers is good, however, if you want a smaller boat and personalized service I HIGHLY recommend Island Ventures. Darrell and Anne are owners and operators and are fantastic.

i use silent world dive center they have the cheapest 5 trip package $275 in Key Largo, have also used Horizon Divers, and Ocean Divers like all three, i usually go with the cheapest charter so i have more money left to buy scubapro stuff at ocean divers or go to divers direct.
