Top 5 Key Largo Snorkelling Dive Operators ; There is a choice from many Operators in the Upper Florida Keys. Whatever your passion, be it on the surface or below, the keys are a Mecca for dive or snorkelling enthusiasts.

We are happy to provide additional more detailed information about the snorkelling and Diving options.

The reef health has been carefully monitored to ensure it remains vibrant and colourful and the snorkelling and diving is wonderful along the reef.

Some of the operators are highly technical and cater to wreck and deep drift divers, whilst others are better suited towards average recreational divers. Some are particularly good with learners and low hours PADI divers who need a high level of supervision, others are better suited to more independent divers.

Whether you are happiest on a large stable craft, but with lots of people around you, or would prefer a more bespoke operator with fewer people – hopefully a little information will benefit your planning.

There are approximately 8 main operators, plus several booking agencies in Key Largo and the locale, with various pros and cons.

The wind can blow 20+ knots at any time of year, however If you are a devoted diver, the best water visibility months are more usually July, August and September so long as there are no deep low pressure systems moving through.
