Dive Boats in Key Largo
At Rainbow Reef Dive Center, we feature a range of FIVE custom dive boats, all of which have engines that are EPA Tier III rated - the best for the environment - versus the smokey, nauseating diesels of days past. The boats are designed for maximum functionality and comfort for divers - not some sort of "cattle herding" operation - featuring larger boats to handle some of the bigger groups who use our services. Our larger boats also handle the weather better, which will make your diving trip with us the best experience possible.
Speaking of safety, our dive center is located only a few miles from the state of the art hyperbaric chamber at Mariner's Hospital.
All five Rainbow Reef Dive Center boats are equipped with well maintained equipment and engines, along with the latest in technology such as GPS, depth finders, ship to shore radio, and EPIRB's - all for your safety and comfort while on board with us.
