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.

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

What first attracted us to this company was that they only take out six (6) people to snorkel on their 25 foot boat. We have been on larger boats of 30 to 40 people. This was personalized service by Capt Tim and company. If you are tired of the "cattle boat" type of snorkeling then this is for you. We... More

Small boats, 6 max. The second day our family of 4 had the boat to ourselves. Great service & nice people from booking to getting... More

My husband and I booked our first dives here after completing our Open Water Certification. Excellent communications from Cate with planning and excellent services from everyone in the shop, the very capable boat captain, and knowledgeable guide made it the perfect choice. Our first dive was called due to rough sea conditions, but the subsequent dives made up for it.... More

Quiescence is in a class by itself! Their fundamental mantra is safety first, total enjoyment second. Every boat captain, scuba instructor and guide is dedicated to the diver's safety and total enjoyment of the experience diving in the Florida Keys. We arrived one morning and were given the option of cancelling due to strong winds and high swells. Came back... More

My son and I went on two dives on Tuesday afternoon and we were very impressed! I requested a guide, Chris, who was awesome! Guided with just the right amount of oversight-showing us creatures that we might have otherwise missed! We had arranged to dive today-but because of the seas I decided not to...the shop had no problem and did... More

Weather kept us from diving nQuiescence offered the Enhanced Air PADI class so our time wasn't totally wasted. Instructor moved the class along at our pace. Would take additional classes here.
