We have been diving with Island Ventures for many years. What we love is the smaller boats with lots of space and even more, the "No Stress" atmosphere. If you need help, they will do it.

Over the past several years we have dove with many different dive ops in Key Largo and I can honestly say this is one of the best dive ops in Key Largo. They are very efficient, very safe. They do what they say (unless the weather changes which they can't control). Even if there is only 2 of us on... More

We will most likely be coming back next year, and come here for our diving again! Rachel, our instructor was excellent! She made it very stress free for us and guided us underwater at same time without hovering ! Even though my spouse didn't end up diving underneath, Rachel didn't make big deal about it and left it to us... More

The dive shop is located at the end of a small canal with easy parking and carts to carry all your gear right to the dock. I had arranged a two-tank dive for 3 divers and a snorkeler several months in advance via email and everything was ready for us when we showed up. We were two relatively new divers... More

Well, we have our go-to dive shop for whenever we go to the Keys now! We had 2 newly certified divers (19 and 21) and my wife and I hadn't been diving in a while, so we're glad we picked such a caring, professional dive shop. The weather wasn't bad, but the winds had made visibility bad with choppy 4... More

The crew was wonderful and very helpful. One of the hidden treasures of key largo! My mom and I found island ventures by chance while looking for scuba diving tours. Couldn't have asked for a better group of people to go with. When we comeback to key largo, we will definitely be going with the island venture crew again!

We stumbled over Island Ventures by accident, after looking for a last minute dive. We ended up with 3 of us diving and there was another family of 4 snorkeling. The excursions are a maximum of 10 people. The boat, while basic, was roomy, and light snacks/water were provided. The crew were fun and knowledgeable and took us to locations... More
