Captain Slate's Atlantis Dive Center
The biggest and best charter dive boat operation in the Florida Keys, this center offers two dive trip charters daily where you can discover the coral reefs of John Pennekamp State Park and the Key Largo National Marine Sanctuary, as well as tours on a glass bottom boat and kayak rentals.
We went September 25, 2011. The sharks, barracuda, and big green eel were there. The goliath grouper did not show up that day. Captain Slate made sure that everyone who was interested got "touch time" with the sharks. Even though he has been doing this for years, he still truly made sure that everyone had a great time. The mates were friendly and hard working. They take a high quality video that you can buy for $88. You need to get it to show the grandkids that you actually held a 5' shark!
we made reservations for our snorkeltour at 1230. the boat left at 1345!! my boyfriend rented vins, and the girl at the frontdesk didnt gave us the right papers to collect the vins witch didnt result in a excuus but in a fight with one of the staffmembers, GENE. The bastert almost attacked my boyfriend and yelled at us about not having the right papers! disquisting man. but we went on the tour because we wantec to see the reef. snorkeling was oke but our day was not ood anymore. dont go there people!
boat had twenty people most were divers. other placed we called had 40 to 50 . so i was happy about it . i thought they were nice , fellow passengers were nice allso we got lucky there. saw cool fish a baracuda that fallowed me all over . very scary and a sea turtle that was so cool. try it you wont be sorry m wife got sea sick after a while , but every one made her feel ok about it.
I went for my open-water dive certification and it was great. The staff and boat crew were all great, they were all very friendly and helpful. The only thing that I would change if I could would be, to have the "Creature Feature"
a little less crowded. I'm not sure if the dive center had any control over the other boats and/or divers that showed up there, but there were just too many of us down there at once. Aside from that the trip was perfect and I can't wait to get down there for my birthday.
I love how easy going they were. They do stick to the rules, but if you obey everything they ask of you then you will have an awesome time. I defiantly enjoyed myself here and if you are wanting to become a certified scuba diver all of their instructors are wonderful people. :O)
Best, safest, most experienced, well priced, entertaining and fun place to go diving with out of Key Largo.
Boats are a little slow (get to know your friends on the trip out and back in your on vacation!)
Land lovers complaining about seasickness... I understand but this is the Open Ocean, and sea sickness is not under a dive operators control. Having seen hundreds of "Sea Sick" people... Learn how to address the problem in advance instead of expecting a dive operator to do it for you.
Nov ,09 My wife was cert. with Atalntis Dive Center and she was very happy with the way the instructor took such great lenghts to make sure she was comfortable in the water. The new manager Becky went out of her way to make sure we had a great time, she was very helpful, she knew every hot spot Key largo has for night life and great places to eat. Very happy with the service
I have been it with Captain slates Atlantis dive Center for 10 years and my experience here has always been positive. Some days are busy but I'm always taken care of and treated like a valued customer. Most of the time I am even able to give suggestions on where I would like to go diving. My diving experiences have always been good and I only dive with Captain slates Atlantis dive Center. One really happy customer
My dive buddy and I booked a trip with Atlantis Dive Center in Key Largo to take us out to the Spiegel Grove, a popular and challenging deep water wreck dive. Deliberately lying to us, the staff at the dive center checked us in as Spiegel Grove divers, loaded us on a boat, and half way out informed us we were on our way to two shallow water reef dives. The mate told us that day’s trip to the Spiegel Grove had been canceled but that the manager would resolve the situation for us when we got back to the dive center.
To make a long story short, the manager lied to us some more and then never resolved the issue. We were lied to and deceived and the manager, and the business owner would not even return any of our multiple phone messages about the situation. THIS WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD AS A CONSUMER…EVER!
They Keys are a great place to vacation and dive! It’s a good thing there are so many other options to chose from in the way of dive charters in Key Largo that I won’t have to deal with these crooks on my next trip to the Keys.
Went snorkeling with Captain Slate's Atlantis Dive Center during the Christmas holiday. I had a reservation and they completely disregarded it and told me the boat was full...even after I told them I drove 2 hours that morning. Eventually, they crammed our party into a beat-up boat with 40 uber-tourists. During the entire 4 hour ordeal, I felt like this was the first snorkel tour this company had ever done. Equipment was given out during the rough ride out to the site. Most operations take care of this detail *before* you board the boat...Slate choses to make you sick while you try on flippers at high seas. Captain Slate himself was on the boat, making matters even more interesting as he gave useless advice.. the highlight was being dropped of at the dive-site only to have to swim 100 yards to the coral reef. 90% of the others didn't make it and only saw sand and water. Save your money and go elsewhere!
