Comments This was my 4th time with Quiescence and these folks do not disappoint. It is a fine operation with 3 6-diver boats. The staff and boat captains are friendly and experienced. Virtually every Keys native I encountered on this trip complained about the windy weather they had experienced throughout the winter of 2003-2004. Conditions were not ideal but we made the best of it. The Marriott is a satisfactory selection and it is located right next door to Quiescence. Fish life seemed more abundant and mature than on previous trips. The Florida Keys remains a very viable choice, especially for those looking to log a good deal of bottom time on reefs & wrecks while staying in the USA.
