The main purpose of this trip to complete my 12 year old son's open water
certification.  We have done most of our diving off Key Largo, and have
used Horizon Divers most of those times.  Their boat is especially suited
for new divers: quite stable, spacious, and with relatively short trips to
the dive sites.  Horizon Divers came under new ownership last year but many
of the staff were still their.  The quality MAY be a little lower than
before.  We felt less like guests, and more like customers.  Perhaps we
just missed the old owners who had spoiled us.  We will, however, likely
dive with them again.
There was some obvious evidence of hurricane (Wilma) damage: sponges
rolling on the bottom, freshly broken pillar coral.  However, I was
expecting worse.  Many good dives.
We stayed at the Ramada for the first time, having stayed at the Best
Western Suites during past trips.  My wife liked it a lot better: brighter,
newer, better breakfast and pool.  I had like the extra room and two baths
at the BW.  Both are a very short walk to Horizon Divers.  Book them
through Horizon Divers for a good (best?) price.
Incidently, the nearby Tower of Pizza restaurant makes a great post-dive
