Owner description: Dive Duck Key in the heart of the Florida Keys is a full service retail scuba diving shop. Our dive shop and dive boat, the Seafari, are located at the Hawks Cay Resort, Duck Key, Florida. We specialize in reef and wreck scuba diving in the Florida Keys. Hawks Cay Resort is oceanside, which allows us to get to our destination quickly for a great day of scuba diving in the middle Keys. The coral reef off Duck Key is as close as 3 miles from our dock. Diving with our shop, Dive Duck Key, we can show you up to 30 different dive spots, located off Duck Key, mile marker 61, on the 180 mile chain of the Florida Keys' coral reef. The Florida Keys' coral reef is composed of thin plates or layers of calcium carbonate secreted over thousands of years by billions of tiny, soft-bodied animals called coral polyps. The reef is constantly growing new colonies of polyps on top of the skeletons of older ones. These coral formations can be seen just under the water's surface to deeper than we can dive recreationally. Dive Duck Key has a long list of fun things to do while vacationing in the Florida Keys. We offer great scuba diving trips, resort courses, SNUBA(R), and full scuba diving certification lessons. We rent all types of scuba gear - including tanks, regulator consoles, dive lights, weight belts, full/shorty wet suits, hoods, mask, prescription masks, fins, open heel fins with booties, snorkels - whatever you need to dive the Florida Keys. We also repair scuba diving equipment and we can fill your tanks with air, and have nitrox tanks available for rental. Dive Duck Key has a large inventory of scuba and snorkel retail items. Plus, our T-shirts are great; pirates, scuba dive and snorkel scenes, and of course, sharks!

“Wet suit rental for Dolphin Research Center”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

We rented 2 shorty wetsuits from a super nice guy named Wade. He fit my wife and daughter without them being there. They fit perfectly! Very reasonably priced and looked like they were brand new. Thank you for helping make their day more enjoyable.

“Friendly, helpful support staff and great site selections.”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

The staff all went overboard (only kidding) to help me pick the right trips based on my diving style. They also took special care to help me in and out of the water due to my recent knee surgery.

“Dive was lackluster”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We loved our instructor and crew. The fish we saw did not have a lot of color. Our guide did make sure we saw everything we may have missed without him. For 500 to 600 I paid for two people I wish the dives had more to them.

“Fantastic service and staff!!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

If you are going to snorkel in the middle keys, go to Duck Key, more importantly, go to Dive Duck Key. Very knowledgable and friendly staff. They were great with the kids too. Thank you Schwanky, Morgan, Tom, and Captain!

“Dive Duck Key Snuba”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

My family had a wonderful time with Dive Duck Key. We went Snuba which is a combination of Scuba Diving and Snorkeling. We went 25ft underwater and saw beautiful fish, shark and reefs. The instructors were great and worked with each to of us to make sure we were comfortable underwater. The tanks were on a raft and we were connected with tubes so it did not require us to be certified scuba divers however we enjoyed almost the same depth. I highly recommend this company and they really understood the waters and area.
