Have been diving w/ a few operators in Key Largo.  These folks are no
pressure, friendly and professional.  They have a couple of boats and don't
overload them w/ divers.  They are punctual, so don't be late.  Dive
briefings are thorough, but not long winded.  The divemasters help those
needing help, before being asked (a good thing).  Worth noting is the day
that my wife and daughter (non-divers) were going to snorkel around a reef
while my son and I dove it.  The water was fairly choopy and one of the
staff said that it may not be a good day for snorklers.  My wife and
daughter decided to pass on the trip and hang at the pool instead.  I was
thankful that the It's a Dive staff was concerned about the customer's
experience and not just another few bucks in the register.  I had prepaid
for the event and they gave me back the money without me having to ask. 
The Marriott is on the same property and could not be more convenient to
the dive shop.  Good value in the dive packages.  I will dive with them
again and again.
