Here are few things that separates Rainbow Reef Dive Center from the many other dive operations location in the Florida Keys:

Friendly Service

Your crew on both land and sea can really make the difference between good dive experiences and bad ones. We strive to give each and every customer the highest level of attention and service possible from the minute they arrive at the dive center, until they depart. Why? It's simple, because we want you to come back and recommend us to your friends.

FULL Service

What is a full service dive center? They seem to be hard to find these days. Everyone says they are full service, but our mission is to prove it on a daily basis. We believe a dive center needs to be more than just a ride out to the reef. Here are just a few of the components that make up a typical dive trip with us:

  • Free Dive Guides

  • Fresh WARM water showers on boats

  • Complimentary chocolate chip cookies

  • Complimentary bottled water

  • Upon request, crew changes your gear over between dives

  • Upon request, crew breaks down your gear

  • Detailed briefings on dive sites

  • Advice on where to stay, eat, shop or fish

Why is this important? Because it's nice to stay in an water front room that is only 50 feet from the dive boats. We also get discounted room rates for our divers, so it's easy to make 1 custom package for your diving and your stay.

It's also important if you are training, we have our own 12' deep pool ON-SITE, so there is no need to load up a car with equipment, figure out how to get to the pool, drive to the pool, unload, and then load it all back up when you are done.

Eight Custom, Clean and Comfortable Boats

Who wants to ride on an old, dirty, beat up boat? We scrub down our boats, empty the mask and camera rinse tanks, and change the fresh water after every trip to make sure the boats are sparkling white, comfortable and clean for the next set of divers.

New Rental Equipment Inventory

We've recently upgraded and updated our rental inventory with Aqualung and Suunto dive equipment. New BC's, wetsuits, Regulators and dive computers. We have plenty of different sizes so everyone gets a good fitting equipment. We service and maintain our equipment at regular intervals to insure quality and performance while you are using it.

Quality of Dive Sites

We cannot really take credit for this, but it is important to note. From our location in beautiful Key Largo, we can take you to all the popular Pennekamp State park locations, and frequently dive Molasses Reef, French Reef, The Christ Statue, and the Spiegel Grove just to name a few. You can dive over 75 dive sites in the upper keys with just one reservation.

Weather Reports

We watch the weather like a hawk. We employ all technology at our disposal to make sure we are always going to the dive location with the best conditions as well as avoiding weather that would make for miserable diving. The bottom line, if we know you aren't going to have fun because of the weather, we don't want you to go. Sure, it's a business, but money is not the bottom line when it comes to your safety and dive experience.

Web Presence

We've tried to make this site as comprehensive as possible. We didn't want a site that would just give you the prices! We wanted to provide as much information as possible so you can use our site as your one stop for planning out your vacation to our area. We will continue to improve the site. Soon you can expect to see things like online bookings, client photo contest, discount dive equipment, more webcams, and much much more.

Our Instructors

We have several instructors on staff who between them have years of teaching experience. The experience translates to patience. The last thing you need is stress from an overbearing know-it-all instructor while you are learning to dive. We take the time and effort to make sure each and every student has the knowledge, confidence and training to become a safe, happy diver for life.
