Sea Dwellers Dive Center is a full-service dive center located in Key Largo in the Florida Keys, an area often dubbed the "Dive Capital of the World.'' This facility is given a five-star rating by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) and has been operating in the area for almost 40 years.
Sea Dwellers features a variety of opportunities for both beginner and experienced divers. Trained staff members offer all levels of instruction at their onsite pool or in the open water off the coast of Key Largo and beyond. Classes include a one-day PADI Discover Scuba course, open water certification classes (which include 6 open water dives), referral dives (certification dives), advanced open water instruction, rescue diver courses, and master diver and divemaster instruction.
Those interested in instruction or certification can also take advantage of Sea Dwellers Dive Center's unique eLearning courses, which allow divers to learn the basics of diving on their home computer before arriving in Key Largo to complete the water portion of the class or certification.
The Dive Center shop offers everything a diver will need to complete a course or experience a dive. Complete rental services are offered as well as equipment repair and service and air fills. Sea Dwellers Dive Center is a Sherwood/Genesis scuba equipment dealer and offers a huge inventory of masks, fins, and snorkels as well as various accessories. Bathing suits and other clothing items are available and patrons may also purchase other dive trip necessities at the shop, including towels and suntan products.
Dive charters are plentiful at Sea Dwellers Dive Center. Certified, experienced staff guide 2 reef trips daily, each a half-day long. All dive trips include two locations instead of one and trips are aboard a fast-moving, Coast Guard-approved vessel that divers catch at the marina adjacent to the dive center. Trips include water, juices, and snacks. The center chooses from about a dozen different dive sites in the area, including Molasses Reef, French Reef, Key Largo Dry Rocks, the Benwood or Speigel Grove Wrecks, Pennekemp Coral Reef State Park, and several others. All are within close proximity of the dive center.
In conjunction with the Holiday Inn Key Largo Resort, an affordably-priced adjacent hotel, the Sea Dwellers Dive Center offers Dive and Stay packages that include accommodations at the resort, buffet breakfasts, plus a daily 2-location dive trip that includes tanks and weights. Package stays also put non-diving family members close to a number of fun and educational activities, including non-diving charters, opportunities to fish, and nearby attractions that offer "swim with the dolphins'' events. There are also several excellent restaurants within close proximity of the dive center, offering local specialties such as conch.
