Comments We have had a long love affair with Lost Reef Adventures (LRA)
We've been diving with Nick and LRA since the late 80's. Now we're taking friends here and introducing them to LRA. Our recent trip 3/31/18-4/9 included four dives over 2 afternoons with another couple and their newly-certified 12yo. As usual, LRA was very accommodating and professional.

Normal diving here is "the pool is open, here's where you want to go" which we prefer. However with another couple (they are experienced) and their newly minted 12yo diver, I requested a dive master so we had more eyes on the group. Yes, you do pay for a dive master, but safety first!

All four dives were as wonderful as the Keys get, with the selection of dive sites based on what was best that day. Mike kept a close eye on our 12yo, and still kept pointing out the most interesting stuff.

We all had a great time, and as usual truly appreciated the staff Nick puts together. Also, Nick will nix a dive trip if visibility is poor.
