I spent quite a bit of time researching dive centers in Key Largo before choosing Rainbow Reef. Aside from the great reviews they have not only on tripadvisor but also on other dive specific review sites, they promptly responded to my emails and effectively answered all of my questions/concerns. The captain of the boat I went on, Jim, first mate... More

We arrived at the dive store when we were suppose to be at the docks for check in to go diving. The staff explained where the dive center was but a guy that they called "Hollywood" offered to lead us to the docks location. When we arrived, he offered to and carried our gear to the office area, got us... More

My son and I got a referral for our PADI open water certification. Our local dive shop instructor recommended Rainbow Reef Dive Center. And he was spot on! Our experience couldn't have been any better. I called to get everything arranged. Stephanie took the time to not just get details about our trip, but to get to know us. When... More

Did a 2 tank dive with this shop and had a great time. Water was choppy for the dives, but that's how it goes. They are very professional, good equipment for rental, and the guides took good care of you and your gear. Looks like they had 3 boats, the good size ones with plenty of room onboard. The address...

I had one day to dive while visiting south Florida and I am so happy that I chose Rainbow Reef. I can't say enough good things about Rainbow Reef DC. This is dive operation is a well-oiled machine and one of the most efficient and organized charters I've encountered so far. I loved their free dive guide service. Wilson, Shay,... More

Came out here for spring break with my school. Had 5 days of diving, great experience. Couldn't have asked for a better staff. Had captain Jack and Eric "Hollywood" as the first mate. Both were fantastic. Hollywood kept us company on the boat. Even had him as a Dive Master on a night dive, what a great experience that was... More

After finishing our academics and pool dives, we finished our open water certification at RRDC. They did a pool check to make sure our initial training was acceptable. The 4 open water dives were enjoyable and all skills were clearly demonstrated and checked off. Boat crew were efficient and helpful. Loved our instructor, Fletch!! Hope to be back for more... More

I was a customer / student of Rainbow Reef just prior to Christmas in 2016. I set up to get my OWD certification by speaking with Shannon who was awesome by the way. I've in my life spoken to people over the phone who are unable to clearly answer any questions , at times it's actually felt awkward due to... More
