Conch Rebublic Divers is my choice as well. We'll be there in 18 days. They have nice boats and treat you well.

In Key West I recommend South Point Divers. Great crew, very nice boat.

We are actually going to be staying in Miami. We are driving down to the keys for one underwater day.http://www.scubatoys.com/forum/smileys/smiley19.gif This is really one of those last minute things. I have made reservations already. It gives us a direct place to go directly to and not just spend all day wondering around.http://www.scubatoys.com/forum/smileys/smiley2.gif Thank you everyone for you help. It has been very helpfull.http://www.scubatoys.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif

I have dived with Captain Slate before in Pennekamp. It's been a few years, but it was a nice operation. Here's a link to their website: http://captainslate.com/CaptainSlate/index.php They're located in Key Largo. Easy drive from Miami. Hope you meant Thursday the 2nd and not Thursday the 26th....

Right across the road from Conch Republic is Divers City. I really like them. They are my favorite operation in the Keys. But they are in the process of closing up. But they still run charters till they sell their boat. Maybe this week, maybe next year. And the good part is if they arn't available, Conch Republic is right across the street. You can't go wrong with either 1.

I'm going to Key Largo 8/23. Maybe I should buy the boat! Anyone got a few bucks I can have???

In Key Largo itself, I have used both Blue Water (Brent), and Quiescence. Farther south, Conch Republic is a good op in Islamorado/Tavernier.

Thank you all for your help!!! We used Conch Republic and it was great! The reefs were great. Too bad we had to come back so quickly.

The trips are never long enough. I'm already sad about coming back from the Keys and haven't even left yet. :smiley1:
