Site selections are usually going to be Captain's Call. We hire only the most experienced Captains with extensive knowledge of local waters. They are experts on finding the best possible sites based on conditions each day. There are over 100 spectacular sites that we regularly visit spanning 6 different reef systems just off Key Largo. We are lucky enough to be sitting right smack in the heart of the Dive and Snorkel Capital of the World. There are NO bad sites around here! We will typically be moored in about 20-35 feet of water (from the surface to the sand) which we know initially sounds DEEP to snorkelers but it's really not and here's why...

We have some of the most stunningly beautiful and dynamic coral formations in the area and most of them rise off the ocean floor by 8-15 feet which means that you will only be about 10-15 away from the corals and critters while you are in the water. You will be deep enough to get an opportunity to see more than just the itty bitty reef fish that are found in the super shallow locations, you may get to see stingrays, sea turtles, eels, lobsters, crabs, sharks and so much more! The other benefit of being in the slightly deeper water is that you can be vertical in the water column without having to worry too much about your fins hitting, kicking or damaging the delicate corals below which is a VERY common occurrance in the much shallower locations. 

We select the sites for each trip just before the boat leaves the dock because that's when the Captain will have the most recent and accurate weather, water, safety and other miscellaneous reef conditions available so we can weigh out all the factors and determine where we will be able to get you the safest trip combined with the best conditions such as least amount of current, best visibility and lowest possibility of pesky critters like jellyfish and the fewest #floridaman shennanigans incidents! We super duper pinky promise you, we do not visit any bad sites here in Key Largo with paying guests on board. As a small business that depends on reviews and word of mouth recommendations to stay in business, we can't afford to take you to bad spots. We are the longest running dive shop in the Florida Keys so we know we are doing something right. Trust us, we are going to take you somewhere breathtaking!

If you have a special request for a particular location, feel free to talk with the Captain the day of your trip. If your desired spot has good conditions and is safe to head to, we will be happy to try to get you there, if we can't get you there, we will be happy to explain the reasons why!
