Hello,


Heading to Key West for the first time. Would love some recommendations for a good dive shop there. Thanks for any help you can provide!

key west is fun and wild and a great time, but 100 miles north is where you want to dive...key largo. cannt tell you much about kw except where to play and go silly and eat and drink well. KL is the best diving in the US and one of the best in the world. Have a great time and go to the hogs breath and jimmy buffets placeand call your hotel or call a shop in kl. They will advise you well

Hi

 I dove Key West a few years back with Southpoint divers.They had really nice fast boats and i don’t know what the other guy was talking about but the dives we did with them were really good.

Vandenberg’s one of the better dives down there and most of the boats go out there....

Hi Tamster:


When I am in the Keys, I dive with Halls Diving Center on Marathon Key and with Captn’s Corner on Key West for diving the USS Vandenberg. Great Dive.

Well said and done as the one diver said it KW is good diving ,but for great diving Key Largo is the place you want to be. has 4 shallow wrecks one of is the City Of Washington a must for early morning dive where you will see 300 to 400 pound grouper 2 Morays one is 8 ft. nurse sharks one of which is 7 ft. and they all are friendly and use to divers and come up to you. Mollasses Reef is one of the most dove reef in North America for it’s beauty viz and seeing morays ,sharks,and and Spotted Eagle Rays in formation WOW Then you have the Duane and bibb 2 deep wreacks and the famous Sigeal Grove. AWSOME for your night dive a must on the benwood talk about big parrot fish these suckers look like john boats under water and hundreds of them. Sp you need a little religion well there is always the Christ Statue. most spots except the deep wrecks are good for that snorkeler also. So you ask where’s the best place in the Florida Keys (KEY LARGO)
