Florida Keys Dive Center knows there are many dive stores to choose from while in the Upper Keys. That is why we have worked so hard in the last 17 years to set ourselves apart by being your quality PADI 5-Star Career Development Center in the Fabulous Florida Keys.

Florida Keys Dive Center is located just a short drive (about 70 miles) from the Miami International Airport. Yet, in that drive from the city, through Everglades, into the Islands, you are transported to a paradise of warm waters and swaying palms. In the Keys, we are located at the north end of Plantation Key (Ocean side). This is about midpoint between Key Largo and Islamorada. What a bonus when trying to decide which seafood restaurant you wish to feast!

Even more important than food (we think at least) is the vast range this location gives us to dive. You can experience the first underwater national park, Coral Reef State Park (formerly John Pennekamp Park)and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Explore throughout the Conch Reef System or Crocker Reef System. We can even venture all the way down to world famous Alligator Reef.

In addition, we have some of the best wrecks in the world right here. Come dive with us the USCG cutters "Duane", "Bibb", the freighter "Eagle" and the new "Spiegel Grove."

Aboard our boats, Little Dipper and the proud Mother Ship Goody III, we can offer something to please everyone. You can experience many Reefs and Wrecks. If you are into photography, we can offer some of the very best still and video locations in the entire world right off the front of the boat. We also welcome lobstering and spear fishing from our boats in areas that are not protected.

Florida Keys Dive Center is a full retail operation with a wide selection of snorkel and dive gear and apparel. We can also put together great deals on purchasing full gear packages, or just occasional odds and ends (when did you last check your fin and mask straps?) We have one of the best selections of dive shirts in the Keys. Even more, we have Certified Repair Technicians to handle any last minute repairs to keep you on track and diving!

Florida Keys Dive Center also has a full staff of Instructors and Course Directors to handle any PADI Instruction you may need such as Discover Scuba Diving, Open Water and Advanced Open Water Courses, Rescue, Divemaster and 24 different Specialties. We also teach 9 PADI Instructor Development Courses throughout the year followed by our famous Resort, Retail Pro Instructor Course.

Combine all we have to offer with our customized Dive-Lodging Packages available through us, and you simply have the best the Fabulous Florida Keys has to offer.

We look forward the opportunity to serve you on your next vacation get away to the Fabulous Florida Keys.

Florida Keys Diving & Snorkeling  The 120-mile Florida Keys island chain is home to North America’s only living-coral barrier reef. This teeming backbone of marine life runs the length of the Keys about five miles off offshore.

Our coral formations are famous for their abundance of fish, from impressive schools of blue-striped grunts to toothy green moray eels. The U.S. government established the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary to protect our marine habitat.

Preserving the reef is a top priority for a good reason. There is no more versatile marine destination in the world. We have coral-encrusted ship wrecks and intricate natural coral formations. We have shallow reefs for snorkelers, and a range of deeper reefs for experienced divers.

Most dive sites are equipped with convenient mooring buoys to save the reef from anchors and make it easy for boaters to tie off. Most sites are a short boat ride from our islands, where dozens of highly professional dive operators are ready to cater to you

It's A Dive - Key Largo   IT'S A DIVE is a PADI Five Star Gold Palm Resort with locations in Key Largo and Islamorada.  We are dedicated to quality customer service.  Our goal is to build customer loyalty by being the best family scuba diving, snorkeling, and watersports operation in the Florida Keys
