Comments We brought a new diver down to the Keys to do check-out dives someplace other than a quarry. We were very pleased with both Divers City and Ocean Pointe Suites. Divers City has one boat that takes no more than 10 divers. We never had more than 6. Given that there were newbies on the boat, Bob and Barbara did their best to take us to sites where the advanced divers would be able to wander and see some critters while the new divers were doing skills. On our drift dives, we were allowed to remain under while the instructor took the new folks back to the surface. Saw sharks on three out of four days and were stalked by large remoras on one dive. Visibility ok. Dive on the Duane was great. Lots of fish life. Wish we did Nitrox on this one -- the dive was way too short. Ocean Pointe Suites is just a couple miles up the road from Divers City. Free continental breakfast every AM was a nice bonus. Had a full kitchen to eat at home and save money for the diving. No need for an ocean view suite, we had an island view that had the water as well.
