Conch Republic Divers offers primarily private and semiprivate instruction....

Conch Republic Divers offers primarily private and semiprivate instruction. We do not try to be the fastest around or the cheapest-especially for the basic open water class. It is our approach that you get scuba certified once and you might as well do it right!That said, I believe our price is competitive. At the end of your course you will have a dive table and a log book. Our instructors are patient and thorough and have been diving for years.After scuba diving you'll also like our private warm water showers with dressing area. Plus dedicated internet access for checking your email.Come join our captains and crew and let us provide you with a scuba diving adventure while enjoying other activities the Florida Keys has to offer. Staying in Key Largo or Islamorada, Tavernier is only a few miles to go to have some of the best scuba diving while in the Florida Keys.

We were referred here to finish my open water certification. My girlfriend was already certified, as were her uncle and aunt who joined us, but we were all able to dive together and had a great time. Donna was an excellent instructor and Jason was a fantastic Captain. Both were exceptionally knowledgeable, skilled and personable. We felt safe and excited... More

Nothing went right for my husband and I personally at the beginning of our trip, but Brenda and Conch Republic Divers made everything right, "That's what we do!" This was her response each time something happened, followed with a big smile and a solution! We had several dives scheduled through the week both with Conch and with another dive shop.... More

This was our second trip with CR Divers, a morning 2 tank. Rental equipment was excellent, safety a high priority. We enjoyed a short half hour ride to the reef, where the diving was better than we anticipated. Islamorada is one of the bettter sites for FL diving.

We'd never been to the Keys to dive, and this was among the best ( compared to other spots in NC, Cozumel Mexico, New England,Hawaii) lots of fish, moray eels, stingrays, reef sharks. Excellent! The staff at Conch Republic was top notch. Briefings with diagrams by Jason were very well done, the crew on the boats attentive and professional. Brenda... More

Myself and a friend spent four days diving with CRD. I absolutely enjoyed all my dives with them. Gary and Brenda are great people. All of their Captains and crew were friendly and accommodating. Even on the few trips that had alot of divers. It felt like diving with friends. I can't recommend them enough. I believe they would be... More

Great staff. had an amazing weekend diving the eagle and molasses reef. They kept our gear at their shop overnight, and had everything ready for us the next morning. Best dive trip I've had in the keys.

Just finished a 3-day wreck and reef dive trip on the Republic Diver. Great boat, fabulous crew, and all-around well run shop. Always appreciate finding a group with such high professional standards. Of course the dive sites lived up to their reputation too so I'll be back. Will certainly do business with Conch Republic again.
