The dive trips have been the best Florida Vacation Experience. We just love the reefs, nothing against Disney, Universal, or Seaworld Theme Parks. This is the real deal, even Disney tries to replicate the Florida Keys with the Key West Resort. The most important element to it all is to pick a vacation time by looking at the water temperatures and typical rain chances. Use the weather channel online, as they show both listed by month. Once you arrive all of your attention can go to picking out your target dive spots. There are lots of wreck dives (Spiegel Grove, Duane, Eagle, Thunderbolt, Vandenberg for examples), but you need to be more experienced for those. Keep your trips matched closely with your experience level and you will be fine. The dive shops are excellent with putting you in with the correct group. Every trip is unique, so bring your video camera. You never know what you might bump into, perhaps some Atocha Gold.
