Thank you, Brad, Jeremy and Ally for making our 5 dive trips with you one of the best dives we've ever had! It was fun, safe, and very informative, too! We'll definitely be coming back :)

These folks are very professional and VERY safety-conscious. Dove with Skipper Jeremy, DM Ian, and, DM Allie today; you can't do better than these folks!!

Jacques Vlemmix  - Tilburg / Holland
10 july 2012. As an instructor I have to say it is a very professional organisation. Fine crew and a clear explanation about the dive sites. Good gear and a well equipped boat. We made a dive at Joe's Tug and a coral dive. Do you want to have a good time? Contact Dive Key West! I recommend them. Greetings, Jacques

Tom  - Ft. Myers Florida/Ohio
Have went out with DKW 3 times, 2010 2011 2012.All 3 trips were on the Vandy with the latest one a double dip end of June. I have been lucky all 3 with good seas,low current and uncrowded boat.Dive master Greg did an awesome job on the latest trip as did the dive masters on the 2 previous trips. Viz was a little low (30/40ft) due to TS Debby this trip but virtually no current so some great swim threws were had. When I return to Key West to dive it will be with DKW!

Elsje Kriek  - Greater Toronto Area, Canada
Me and my daughter Jashke did the SSI Open Water course with Alli a few weeks ago! She is an EXCELLENT instructor and after doing the course with her - wish she could always be our dive buddy :) After a very interesting time in class and in the pool - her big brown eyes where always around to give you one good and calming look while in the ocean too! My son and hubby also dived with the rest of the Dive Key West crew! We love them all - cannot get down there with you guys soon enough!

Donald Hecht  - Indianapolis, IN
Brad is a great instructor and guide. The whole crew are professionals. Would recommend to anyone!!

Judson Fry  - St. Petersburg
My wife and I travelled from St. Petersburg to dive the keys for the first time. Dive Key West is truly a top notch dive shop and our dive trip was amazing. They took care of everything. When we come back we wont dive with anyone else but Dive Key West. Thank you guys for everything!

Brian Schultze  - St. Louis, MO
Top notch organization that is fun and professional at the same time. They are very focused on safety and are happy to work with any skill level. My fiancee did her open water check out dives with them while I did my first diving in 7 years. They made both of us feel comfortable and relaxed the whole trip. They are not the cheapest dive shop on the island but I think everything they do for you makes the extra cost worth every penny. While I was there they were doing their deeper/wreck dives in the morning with shallower reef dives (with snorkelers) in the afternoon and night dives a few times. They worked very well with the mixed group of divers and snorkelers. If you want something that a mixed family group can do together this is a great option. I have absolutely no hesitation about diving again with Dive Key West and would not look elsewhere if I come back down again.

Brian Norris  - Mchenry,Il
Not much I can add after reading all these testimonials except just saying it is all accurate! I can not come back soon enough! Thanks again for the great time.

Kevin Martin  - Greenfield, Il
Cee Cee, Bob and Gang, Thanks for all the hospitality and professional service. The 4 of us totally enjoyed the dives and the time Josh took to get us all Open Water Certified. We will be telling everyone about you and I will be giving your cards to our dive shop in Springfield, Il. We will be back to see you and dive with you the next time we are in Key West! Thanks for making it a most enjoyable experience!!!! Sincerely, Kevin Martin Chief of Protection Winchester Ammunition

Scott  - Maryland
Just returned from 6 days of diving with Dive Key West and had an awesome time! The staff is down to earth, professional, and knowledgable. Special shout out to Steve, Jeremy, Brad, Greg, and Ian. You guys made every day of diving both safe and enjoyable. Look nowhere else if you are planning to dive in Key West, these guys are the best.

Terry Deady  - Chicago, IL
I had a great experience becoming Rescue certified by instructor Kell Levindorf. He was extremely competent and experienced, yet accessible, never condescending, considering my many questions. When I dove the Vandenberg later in the week, I was much more confident & aware in part to my new skills at self-rescue. Highly recommended facilities, staff & crew

Donn  - Denver, Co.
I just returned from 4 days of diving with DKW. We dove the Vandenburg, Joe's Tug and 2 reef sites. I was very in pressed with the way the shop worked from Bob and CeCe to all the divemasters (Jeremy, Ian, Eric, Greg) leading the dives. This is truly a first class operation. Thank you for a great experience. I will be back in the future.

Eric Halfest  - South Bend
Dive Key West, Just wanted to let you know that I had a awsome time diving with your shop & staff on 2/17/12 on the morning charter to The Vandenburg & Cayman Salvagemaster. I came in on one of the cruise ships & greatly appreciated your help & patience so that I could dive with you on my very short visit to Key West. The staff at the shop & on the boat were amazing! I look forward to diving with you in the future and plan on bringing some of our dive group from the North with me.

Michael G. Tekel  - Hampton Bays,New York
Probably the most professional and organized dive operation I've been with in many years.Jeremy,Greg,Brad made it safe,easy and fun.Thanks also for the Lionfish filets.Cooked them up in Tampa Monday night with my in laws.Will definitely come back.

Naomi DiVincenzo  - Colorado Springs, Co
Going snorkeling with Cap'n Steve, and Cap'n Jeremy was the highlight of our vacation. We've to the 'big' companies that herd on large groups of people, and thats what you become...part of the herd. Dive Key West will be our choice from now on. They were helpful, and knowledgable and made our snorkeling trip the best part of our vacation. Thanks guys! Thanks to Bob at the dive shop too! We'll see you next year!

Daniel Leblanc  - Montreal, Québec Canada
The crew at Dive Key West was fantastic. Captains Steven and Waryne, were great. Our dive master, Jeremy, a professional, he made our dives safe and fun.He took care of everything on the boat for us. When he dove with us, he made our dives more than just a dive, they were GREAT. At the shop Brad, Alex and Eric were pros. Our equipement was stored and ready upon arrival. This shop is GREAT. Thank you so much Jeremy,Steven, Wayne, Brad, Alex, Eric. Daniel and Lucie

Chuck Brooks  - Hilton Head, SC
My wife, son, and I are researching the Key Largo area for accomodations and dive services. Based upon the excellent reviews I've read on the web, I expect to contact and do business with Dive Key West. Looking forward to diving with you.

Diana Lopez  - Riverside, Calif
Recently we went diving to Joe's Tug with Dive Key West. We couldn't have been happier with the equiptment and staff on the dive boat. Due to weather visibility wasn't real good and the DM still gave us a great tour which we as fairly new divers wouldn't have felt comfortable doing on our own.

Steve Testa  - Merritt Island, FL
I wanted to drop you a quick note upon my return to Merritt Island, FL and tell you how much I enjoyed diving with your dive shop on 14 Oct 2011. I have used several different dive shops in Key West on previous trips and this is the first time that I have used Dive Key West. Let me start by saying that I will ONLY use your dive shop when I travel to Key West in the future.

Dave and CJ  - Tampa, FL
Bob, We really enjoyed diving with your outfit last week. Perfect conditions, good visibility and no current made exploring the wrecks (especially the Vandenberg!!!) and reefs a real pleasure. Kudos to Capts Steve and Wayne, Instructors Alex and Brad and Lana back in the shop. We will be happy to recommend you to anyone heading to KW. Thanks for an outstanding dive trip!

Trevor Portway  - England
Excellent afternoon spent making 2 dives on the reef, Crew were friendly and professional which made for a very relaxing experience. Wish we'd had more time in Key West to dive but when we come back this is were we'll come to do our diving. Thanks guys.

Simon  - London, England
A great 6 dive experience, including 2 dives on the Vandenberg provided by the Dive Key West team. Very professional service, provided immediate confidence from the initial questions and this continued to the completion of the logs after the final dive. Shop and boat teams are great and ensure that the experience is really enjoyable. Look no further, book with DKW.

Caroline Granger  - Simsbury CT
This was the best dive shop I have been to. The crew was great with jeremy and mike helping out. They were extremely professional and I have yet to visit another dive shop that is as good as dive key west. I just got back from key west and already I want to go back to go snorkeling again. This place is awesome!

Nick Hartsfield  - Tampa, FL
We dove 8 times over 2 days with Dive Key West last week and I have to say that I am very impressed. The crew was super knowledgeable of the area and took great care of the divers. I don't think I touched my gear at all during the two days as they took care of everything. I will definitely dive with these guys again!

Nancy Hammel  - Kansas
Loved this dive shop - Jeremy & Capt Wayne! Diving the Vandenberg was something I will never forget!!!! Class act all the way around! I had searched out what I thought were dive shops but were just booking agencies! These folks are the real deal!

My son and I went diving/snorkeling on 10/13/2010 with Captain Steve and our guide Jeremy of Dive Key West.Words can't express how awesome the trip was and friendly the entire staff at Dive Key West were. Lara was very helpful and everyone made this trip the best!I won't dive with any other dive company in Key West.I hope that everyone who reads this takes my advise, and uses Dive Key West as thier dive guides for some of the best diving I've ever experienced. Thank you so much!

Lisa K.  - Metamora IL
Thanks to all for our wonderful dive experience we had in June of this year. The service we received was above and beyond what we have ever experienced. From the setup of our equipment and the detailed briefings on the boat. Everyone was very thorough and very attentive. Special thanks to Lana and Greg. Made our first dive on the Vandenberg one we will never forget! We dove in other locations in the Keys and none compared to Dive Key West! Have already recommended to other divers!

DK Stewart  - Manassas, VA
My family has been to Key West twice this year and we dove with Dive Key West both trip. Bob and his gang are truly a first class operation. We will be back. Their attention to detail, focus on safety, and personalized service cannot be rivaled. I recommend them whether training, guided dives, or just equipment and transportation.

Evan Davidson  - Tulsa,OK
We had an excellent time with Dive Key West. I cannot say enough good things about how we were treated, the dive sites, everything. Professional and helpful staff both on the boat and back at the shop. We will definately dive with them again!

Javier Rosa  - Fayetteville, North Carolina
I went divin just last weekend and my wife went snorkeling and the attention and service that they provided us was unique. This is the kind of service that you want when you go out to sea. The entire staff was very welcoming and were able to answer every question. Also thank you for supporting the military, great discount for all veterans. Thank you for youre services and hospitality, keep on diving.

Mark Willems & Gert Mijnders  - The Netherlands
My son and I went diving the 4e of August 2010 to the USAF Vandenberg with Dive Key west and I was positively surprised of the professional of the people who take care of us. This kind of good service you will not find often. All safety measures were taken and available on board. Also the relaxed atmosphere on board was nice and there was no rush. If you want to dive relaxed and safe, I say go with Dive Key West. Greg, it was a pleasure to dive with you.Mark & Gert, Hoofddorp the Netherlands

Kevin Holbrook  - New Orleans, LA / Memphis,TN
Just returned from Key West and I can truly say Dive Key West is a 1st class operation. Special Thanks to Jackie,Brad,Greg, Sherritta and I felt safe and right at home. Captain Steve thanks for "The Hogfish" tip. The staffs knowledge of the reef and their attention to safety was evident from our first dive to our last. A Great experience and when asked about the best Dive Operation in Key West, I can Only Say "Dive Key West. Continued Success Bob..Climb high

Daniel Hake  - Madisonville, LA
I just got back from my Key West vacation. While there, I did ten dives with DKW. I had an awesome time. Everyone was cheerful, polite and helpful. Steve and Jeremy did a great job on the boat, as we did not always have the most cooperative seas. They got us in and out of the water safely. Safety was the first priority with a close second being fun. The divemasters knew the sites well. I can't wait to come back and see how the Vandenberg has matured. I highly recommend DKW.

Beth DeMaria & Brad Mitchell  - Savannah, GA
We had four awesome days diving with Dive Key West!! Although I had some trouble getting comfortable in the water, everyone was so nice and understanding. Brad had a great time diving the wrecks and I really enjoyed the reef dives. Jackie, Lana, and Cole were awesome, but we want to send a special thanks to Greg and Captain Steve!! Without you two our trip wouldn't have been the same! You guys made this a memorable experience we won't forget! We will definitely be back to dive with you again!!

Juan Garcia & Ada Baisre  - New York
We took our AOW certification with Dive Key West on 04/10. The tailored service, courtesy and professionalism we experienced while diving with them merits our most sincere appreciation. Special thanks to Cole, our knowledgeable and pleasant instructor, to Captain Steve, who keeps an impeccable boat and to Bob, for making all the arrangements painless. Because of them we are better divers. We can’t wait to go back and dive with you again, meanwhile we will recommend your shop to everyone we know!

Col. Phillip E. Styka  - Kirtland AFB, NM
My wife and I were Open Water certified by these very professional and ecologically savy folks. Their gear and boat were top notch. We especially enjoyed the thoroughness and helpfulness of Greg Miller. We will definitely make it back just to dive with this exceptional outfit. PES

Cassie Meckes  - North Carolina
Dear Bob and Team, First, we would like to thank all of you for our BEST VACATION EVER! The professionalism of your entire crew is outstanding.Spending three days diving with your crew, and then with several other dive shops in Key Largo later in the week, we found ourselves comparing everyone else to Dive Key West. No other operation came close to your level of service, courtesy and professionalism.

Mark Jackson  - CT
Bob, I felt the need to send you a quick note thanking you and your staff for a great dive experience last Tuesday morning. You have absolutely the most attentive and professional staff members I have ever had the pleasure of diving with in my almost 20 years of scuba diving. My girlfriend Kristina arrainged the dive as a surprise and I had a blast and wanted to write and say thanx. I'll see you next time in the Keys.

Paul Nonnenmacher  - Sandy Hook, Connecticut
Had two great days with Dive Key West! The marine life they led us to was amazing, and there'll be lots of pictures on my Facebook page this week. I'll be back!

Jeff Brown  - Louisville, Kentucky
I had a great time. Captain Steve was wonderful and has a huge amount of knowledge in his head. Lana was truly incredible. She is a great teacher: she knows what she teaches, she is passionate about what she teaches and she is capable of instilling confidence in her students. All in all everyone I encountered at the shop was incredible. Thanks for everything.

Tim Cuddy  - Kansas City MO
My family had a great afternoon diving with the aid of Dive Key West. We haven't had a lot of diving experience beyond the open water certification but felt incredibly comfortable with the whole Dive Key West team and would recommend them to anyone! Thanks!

Bennie Wiggins  - Georgia
