First off, let me say, I very, very seldom ever contact a business with a complaint. My wife and I dove with you on November 10th. It was a morning dive. Tony was our guide. He was very good as such. For our first dive, the site we were scheduled to do apparently had a fishing boat monopolizing the area... More

I'll start by saying that I chose IDC based on the huge number of positive reviews. I even met several individuals during my stay in Islamorada who absolutely raved about the quality of service and their experiences so it's possible it was extremely bad luck for the Thursday I was there. Regardless, I have no plans to return. The first... More

10 people on a 30+ person boat. We lucked out in that respect. I had a minor BCD issue before we pushed off which was remedied immediately. Captain Eric and three mates (one for boat, one for spear hunters and one guide for divers) made sure that our dives were enjoyable. Bridgette was our guide and she was competent and... More

We took the underwater hunter course and spearfished for the first time. Shawn was our instructor and he emphasized safety, taught us technique and put us on the right fish in the water. Great guide and teacher. The dive shop was easy to find. Dive boat was well set up for diving and Eric and the crew really took care... More

Located right next to the Postcard Inn, their boats are located in the marina behind their shop. Brought my daughter here to get er PADI certification and I was glad I did. I could dive and go fishing while she was in class. All work was done in near by pool. Instructors did an excellent job. I have been certified/... More

My husband and I were in the Keys for a few days and decided to do some diving. We've been in Belize, Roatan, and Cozumel, so we weren't sure if diving in the Keys would be worth it. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the state of the reef and experience with Islamorada Dive Center. The first day we did... More

We will definitely book with this dive center next time we are in the keys! Awesome experience! This was our first dive after getting certified a couple of months ago. Our dive instructor, Toni, was great. He gave us a little refresher before we went spearfishing. By the second dive I felt really comfortable. went spearfishing 2 days for a... More

Husband and I were there to dive and learn how to spearfish. Our guide, Tony, was very informative and helpful. Crew on the boat and all of the staff members were very friendly. Shop and boat were nice and professional, gear that we rented was outstanding. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be back!

Wanted to bring my 15 year old and my wife on a quick dive adventure. My son was certified last summer and we did 4 patch reef dives post cert out of Marathon, and I wanted to expose him to spear fishing and a wreck. Called three different dive shops in Islamorada, and IDC was well prepared to answer my... More
