SCUBA DIVING Key West & lower Florida Keys

Now booking some of the best Florida diving in the state.

Lower Keys scuba sites include: Lower Matecumbe, Long & Duck Keys, Marathon, No Name Key, Big Pine and the Torch Keys, Sugarloaf and Saddlebunch.

Now, Key West diving may be the most popular, but there’s much more to the lower keys than Key West.

Although the area of the Lower Keys is the least developed area in the island chain (until Key West), a dive trip to the Florida Keys would not be complete without a trip to the Looe Key Marine Sanctuary. This combination of outside and patch reefs hold about 150 species of fish and fifty kinds of coral formations. The sanctuary designation of this reef means that all spear fishing, tropical fish and shell collecting are strictly forbidden.

From the lower keys, it is usually possible to get to all of the major wrecks in the area, including Joe’s Tug, the Cayman Salvage Master, and Adolphus Busch, intentionally sunk about three miles west of Looe Key.

Key West scuba diving is perhaps what most come for. The renowned U.S.S. Vandenberg is a medium boat ride from Key West. This world class wreck is over 520 ft. in length and sits in 145 ft. of water. Currents can be vicious on this wreck and it’s one for advanced divers only due to depth ceilings. Check with dive charters when booking, as conditions often cause dive cancellations.

Most of the lower Keys and Key West scuba charters are reputable and will book somewhat similar services. However there are important differences. Some boats are very large, which mean they are more easily able to offer shade, snacks and space to move around, while other smaller “six-packs” make great private dive boats and can usually offer a more flexible itinerary when it comes to dive location, where speed and efficiency are maximized for more experienced divers who know exactly what kind of diving they want.

Check out the Scuba Schedules calendar to find out who’s going where on any particular day. You can book or reserve most of the best Florida Keys dive trips from this site. Remember to get to the dock early – and tell them that Scuba Schedules sent you! We hope you enjoy your scuba diving trip to the Florida Keys. Dive safely!~

Local Booking Charters & Stores Include: Captain’s Corner, Southpoint Divers, Lost Reef Adventures, A Deep Blue, Abyss, Dive Duck Key, Tilden’s, Captain Hooks, Finz, Looe Key Reef Resort, Strike Zone Charters.
