Comments I had never been to Key Largo before so this was a new adventure for us. The dive operation was well manned and the staff was very helpfull. The boat captains were easy going but very knowledgable of the areas and the conditions. They were very familiar with the potential issues at each of the sites and they gave very detailed briefings. The boats were top notch and If I go back to Key Largo I will certainly dive with them again.
The mariners Club was on the high end for accomodations. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa and it was great. The building that we were in was fairly new. The Club had a great pool for relaxing and a health club for those that wanted it. It was a great accomodation but expensive.
