Thankfully we decided to go ahead with Dive Key West....We couldn't have been happier. The instructor Jarrett did an excellent job getting us over the first day nerves and running us through the two day course.

Setting The Bar High

Blue Star Operater

Dive Key West, Inc. was the first dive facility in the Lower Keys to quality as a Blue Star Operator. This designation is awarded to operators who are dedicated to coral reef education and preservation. Bob Holston and Cece Roycraft the owners of Dive Key West have been involved in many initiatives for the preservation of the Florida Keys coral reefs for the past 44 years. They had the honor of being the citizens to go before Congress requesting the Keys be designated a National Marine Sanctuary.  As Capt. Hook’s Dive Key West, we hope to carry on that tradition as new the owners.
