This is the 2nd year that I have used these guys for diving. They always go above and beyond. Out of all of the dive trips that I've been on this one is the best. I will be using them next year. I highly recommend them.

I can not complain drastically because the price is right. The rooms greatly need maintenance. The paint is chipping and there are some rusty spots here and there. I slept ok and the Tiki Bar is also ok.

Perfect place for home base after a day of sightseeing and fishing. Clean rooms, bar and restaurant on property, nice pool to cool off in. Out the back door there were balconies overlooking the canal. Tons of activities can be arranged onsite like fishing tours and such, but the weather wasn't that great so we stayed nearby. I was worried... More

Everyone was very friendly. The room was very clean. My dogs were welcome there and that's the most important to me. The tiki bar was great. Had a good band playing there. Definitely will go back the next trip to keys.

We took used 3 snorkel tour operations while in the keys for labor day weekend. We had the best experience with the Looe Key Resort and Dive Center. The following day we went out with the BHSP snorkel trip and the customer service difference was like night and day, for the worse. We found the state park captains and check... More

My son and I are both certified divers, but because of some bad weather on last Summer's vacation, we hadn't been diving for a year and a half. Looe Key insisted that we do a refresher course, at a pretty steep cost, and then, when we arrived for the refresher, they insisted that we go to an urgent care and... More

Thanks for diving with us and we're glad you enjoyed the reef. Unfortunately, since your last dives were more than 2 years prior, a refresher course was required. A self-completed medical questionnaire is then required to take any course. And, since you had "YES" answers on the medical questionnaire, it required a physician's approval. All of this is to help... More

I've dived here before and was taking my family to snorkel. The big dive boat is out so we all just snorkeled. The other smaller boat took the divers. Captain Jim and KURT were knowledgable about the marine life and the reef. The weather was crappy so we were getting hit with some 5' swells. It really was the worst... More

This our 3rd snorkel trip with James Katie on Friday, May 27. We love this trip so much! We saw turtles on the way out and back, and Captain James made sure we got to see them. We saw our buddy again, the 650lb Goliath grouper, several huge spotted rays, and we followed a reef shark. This was the best... More

Dated but decent motel room just off the highway. Beds were comfortable. Good AC and hot water. Smooth check-in, check-out. We really only stayed to sleep the night before heading out on snorkeling trip. It did the job for family of four. Would stay again if diving at the affiliate dive shop.

We had 2 rooms. Both needed extensive repairs!! The price for the rooms are wayyyy too expensive for what you get. The door's were rusted, the walls were peeling, the towels were stained! Many light fixtures missing and dressers broken. The tiki bar was great, and, snorkeling right on premises was Spectacular!!!
