Mike and Marcia Goldberg run a first rate operation. The operation is
small, only one boat, the GIANT STRIDE. They did not over pack the boat and
we all had good individual attention. The dive masters were all experienced
and very amiable. The plan was discussed in detail and we dove the plan.
Between dives the crew changed tanks for us and we could store our gear on
board for the next day. We dove with them five (1/2) days and got our
money's worth. Most of the dives were shallow ie 60 FSW or less. The reefs
are best at that level. One dive was a wreck dive on the EAGLE. It is in
90-110' and the current going down swift. Not a dive for a novice. No hull
penetration but a good experience.  Check it out at or

N.B. There is another operation with a similar name nearby. Key Dives is at
MM 79.8 in Islamadora, FL.
