I’ve lived in the Keys for over 20 years - and we always choose Looe Key Dive Center to snorkel or dive with. They have certified our entire family (2 junior divers). The staff is amazing, helpful, friendly and fun!

You all can go on the same trip with Looe Key DC. The reef trips all go to the same reef. You'll have fun all around. The boat has snacks and drinks for sale. Super friendly and safe crew. You'll love it.
