We were certified in November 2016 from this shop and had our second dive with our great instructor Sean. Love the laid back, all our welcome attitude, and at the same time, safety first. We dove out of other shops that were far too lax, this shop has the perfect balance.

Many thanks to Tony and the entire staff at IDC. Always professional, patient, skilled and safe. We love that they completely handle our gear, an A+ service. We completed our PADI advanced diver certification in Feb-2017 - our 5th year with Eric at IDC for our 50th wedding anniversary.

We get away and GO DIVING. Love this team of professional divers. From check in to dive, it's always a great time. We love the fast, well maintained boats, top notch equipment, easy access, and the dive variety. The staff checks in fast, the boat pros help with set-up equipment, help during dive, and after dive exit. The best guides... More

I have never been spearfishing and really hadn't plan on it. But after watching the guides and divers doing the whole thing I was all for it! Shaun took excellent care of me all week. Making sure I was getting what I needed out of each dive and taking me under his wing with the introduction to "Underwater Hunter" status.... More

Thank you Dive Master Tony for the great dives today. We enjoyed how personal you were with us, pointing out the sharks, lobster and teaching me to spearfish. We will definitely dive with IDC again next time we are in Islamorada. Brody was a fantastic Captain who was also was very informative and very helpful. We loved it. JJ and... More

Wow - what a great TEAM! I've been diving all over the Caribbean since 1980. Great dive shop, great location, great equipment, fantastic Boats, and an amazing team of professionals. From the start, it was flawless. Grace was very helpful arranging the plans. We dove on Christmas Eve and again on 27th. Great dives both days. Thanks Greg and Sean!... More

I recently got my PADI open water diver certification from here and had a great experience. Tony was my instructor and he did a great job! He was very patient and my overall experience was fantastic. After getting my certification I also did a few open water dives and had a phenomenal experience, even with the strong seas. Brody, Jeff,... More

First off, let me say, I very, very seldom ever contact a business with a complaint. My wife and I dove with you on November 10th. It was a morning dive. Tony was our guide. He was very good as such. For our first dive, the site we were scheduled to do apparently had a fishing boat monopolizing the area... More

I'll start by saying that I chose IDC based on the huge number of positive reviews. I even met several individuals during my stay in Islamorada who absolutely raved about the quality of service and their experiences so it's possible it was extremely bad luck for the Thursday I was there. Regardless, I have no plans to return. The first... More
