I dove with them for 2 days in December 2016. I did the Adolphus Busch wreck on one dive - as part of the Keys Wreck Trek! Other dives were on the Looe Key Reef. Looe Key Reef is beautiful and has lots of fish. When I was there - in December - the visibility was decent, but less than... More

I'm a scuba diver, so I don't think I can do real justice to having been on a snorkel trip. This is a very well organized and efficiently operated cattle car operation --a term fellow divers will understand --with 32 snorklers and divers on board . The reef we visited was shallow...not a lot of coral, with a modest fish... More

Looe Key is a great reef to snorkel and the crew from Looe Key dive center did a great job. You get an hour each at two different locations on the reef. Agian, the crew did really good job. We would use them again.

I hadn't dove in a few years and figured it would be good to have a pool refresher. I came in a few hours before we were set to go out to the reef (the rest of my fam snorkels) to review some SCUBA basics. Jake was great and made me feel comfortable. He made sure that I felt very... More

We booked Looe key resort and dive center because we wanted to dive Looe Key. The dive shop is located right off the highway, with boat access behind it. The staff were super courteous the entire time we were there and always made us feel safe. They took interest in our kids (10 and 16) and their safety. Please BE... More
