This place never disappoints! Even in some seriously "sporty" weather they pulled off a great weekend of diving capped off by a third day with good weather, great visibility, a dive on The Duanne, and two dives on Molasses Reef. Thanks Captain Carsten, Tracy and Scuba Joe for a memorable weekend. See you this fall.

Visited the Keys dive center with my wife and kids. After leaving the smooth waters of the canal the adventure started. Had never been , willingly, on such chopped waters. All of us got sea sick no one cared. It was very clear that all that mattered was the NON refundable 48 $ per head. They should have never allowes... More

Thank you for your feedback on your recent snorkel trip with us. You are absolutely right, the weather was not good for most part of this past week, and we are very sorry you did not have a good snorkeling experience. However, you failed to mention in your review that when you inquired about the trip you were being informed... More

My sister and I were certified last fall and booked this trip to get some dives under our belt. We were both a little nervous about going out again so long after our certification, so hired Joe to be our guide. He was great! Very helpful, very good-natured and very patient. We had an excellent time. The crew and captain... More

We went on the afternoon snorkel excursion after being warned that winds and seas were very high. It was a mixed group of divers and snorkelers. The divers were just fine, but the high seas made for a very adventurous snorkel! But, these guys were very honest about the conditions from the beginning, so we were ready and chose to... More

From our first phone call with Yvonne, looking for a dive center for our children to complete their Jr. PADI check-out dives, we felt at ease. Every question was answered with safety in mind. It was highly recommended that our children (11 and 13) participate in a pool refresher to become acquainted with the rental equipment before their scheduled checkout... More

FKDC has always gone above and beyond to ensure that everyone is taken care of. Scuba Joe is a phenomenal instructor, first mate and all around personable guy with a great sense of humor and "mediocre" jokes :-) Captain Tom and Dave also outperform any expectations. On a recent trip, it was my son and I 's first lobster hunt,... More

I've been diving here since 2008 when I completed my certification with them. Excellent boats, good prices and rental gear, and friendly, upbeat staff too. On the many excursions I've had with these folks, even when there's a full boat of divers, you never feel cramped. I've tried other companies, and that's not the case with most. Their boats are...

We have been snorkeling in two locations for one hour each. We were instructed by Tracey and Captain Tom. Both were very informative and helpful. Captain Tom jokes were awesome and increeased the good spirit in the boat. I liked the location of the dive as we saw six sharks, two rajas and many fishes. We rented hardware and it... More

A highly professional operation. We did a scuba refresh and my daughter did Discover Scuba. The scuba instructors (Tracy and Dion) were AMAZING. Talented, caring, calm. The boat captains left much to be desired. Standoffish and arrogant. I would dive w/ this operation again, for the INSTRUCTORS.
