Since 1977 Quiescence has concentrated on providing it's clientele with an un-crowded and personalized way to enjoy the sport of diving - both scuba diving and snorkeling.

We have three boats here at Quiescence, and each operates with a maximum of six passengers to provide each customer with personalized attention, comfort, and safety. This also gives us the ability to take our divers out to spots not normally visited by divers.

Our charters operate within the Key Largo National Marine Sanctuary, John Pennekamp State Park, and beyond. Each dive location is selected first and foremost by the customer's wishes, supported by recommendations by the Captain as to local conditions.

I chose Quiescence because they advertised that they never took out more than six divers on a boat--no cattle boats here. I hadn't been driving for a few years so I took a refresher course with Joe, who was a great instructor, friendly, knowledgeable, and encouraging. In the afternoon we went out for two dives in Pennekamp,Park. Steve was a... More

The one thing I try to avoid with dive charters or live aboards is a boat with too many divers. It can be a problem getting in the water, a potential problem of congestion on safety stops and a problem with storing gear on board. Quiesence dive boats only take out six divers on a boat and the staff in... More

The captain was nice, but I didn't feel like this was that much better than snorkeling boat w lots of people.. if I come back I'll prob do the snorkeling trip w at least three location. We only got to do two location, and I didn't feel like it was worth the money..

Fabulous staff focused on the customer, including safety and comfort of kids. Knowledgeable and went out of their way for their clients. We would certainly recommend and use again! My husband did two dive trips and my daughter and I did a snorkel trip with them this past week!

Two newly certified divers ( Greg and Sophie) loved all your staff! Chris and Steve dive guides showed them everything they wanted to see and more. When the rest of us joined them on a snorkel trip we also had a great time. Special thanks for holding the boat when we were stuck in traffic. Lightning fast fitting of gear... More

This dive shop is perfect for all divers, no matter their experience. They are friendly and are really interested in providing dives that are enjoyable and matched to your experience. The shop is well organized and stocked. I did not rent any gear, but the regulators, BCs and wet suits I saw were well maintained and would have no concern... More

From check in to the trip everything was great. All the staff were very welcoming. Captain John was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. We had a fantastic trip, great way to spend the afternoon. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I are new to diving (we have about 25 dives logged so far), but we found we liked scuba diving in smaller groups which is why Quiescence appealed to us. When I called to book a dive, I told the person I spoke with on the phone that we wanted a guide because we don't know how... More

Quiescence Diving Services provides what few can, service, safety and a great time! Their small company service while providing all the benefits of much larger companies without the crowds on their 6 passenger boats. You cannot find operators that provide their brand of service. While each of their captains provide their unique personality to the boat they all provide outstanding... More
