Quiescence Diving Service,, has three six passenger
boats docked behind the dive shop on US 1 in Key Largo.  They have awesome
air fills (3000 PSI and maybe a touch) in all of their tanks.  With three
boats they can mix and match dive sites from Spiegel Grove for advanced to
a "private" patch reef for beginners or a second dive.  The
owners, Rob and Paul, work in the store and captain the boats.  I went out
with Rob as a boat captain for two days running and had a great time.  Very
good briefings and a real concern for safety.  You sit on the transom, your
BC and tank are placed on your back, you buckle up and do a giant stride
and are in the water.  Getting out you sit on the transom, the BC is
removed and you board the boat.  Tanks were changed for us both days. This
is not a large operation with cattle boats.  If you want a party boat do
not dive with Quiescence.  If you want a no-hassle trip with accomodating
captains and a friendly in-store staff, dive with Quiescence.   I will be
diving with them again.  I really like the six-pack boats.  And I really
enjoyed talking with Rob about the history behind the Spiegel Grove.  Good
people with good attitudes.
