The Diving

 

Key Largo is just a short drive from Miami, located in the Upper Keys. Rainbow Reef Dive Center in Key Largo has everything you'll need for your diving adventure in the beautiful Florida Keys! We've got the best of diving here, everything from extensive coral reefs, artificial reefs, wrecks, ledges, walls and centuries old shipwrecks. Oh, and don't forget the fish! Depths range from 18-120 feet, with each dive site offering its own unique qualities! Our dive charters will hit all the great spots, from Key Largo's Elbow Reef down to Islamorada's Conch Wall. You may dive famous sites such as Molasses Reef, French Reef, wreck of USCGC Duane, wreck of the Benwood, and even the USS Spiegel Grove.

The dive boats are EPA Tier III rated - the best for the environment - versus the smokey, nauseating diesels of days past. The boats are designed for maximum functionality and comfort for divers. The larger boats also handle the weather better, which will make your diving trip with us the best experience possible.

All dive boats are equipped with well maintained equipment and engines, along with the latest in technology such as GPS, depth finders, ship to shore radio, and EPIRB's - all for your safety and comfort while on board.

Guests are invited to take a guided educational tour of the hospital facilities and the sea turtle rehabilitation area.
