    Hello, Hola, Thank you to be here.... and welcome to the Rainbow Reef Family, my Family. 

     

    I have been diving for a few summers now, to be exactly since 1994, like pretty much everyone else, my first underwater breath was  on a family trip to Honduras, my confined water was a pond surrounded by mountains, crystal clear water, a waterfall, nature and colorful flower everywhere.... done !!! well not really, to top that off my first open water dives were in one the most beautiful reef  I have ever dove. what else do I need in life???, it was amazing.. since that day I  have been diving in so many places, to many to make a list here. call me at 305-451-7171 if you want to know where to go diving, of course after we come here.  Key largo has one the most beautiful dive spot in the world, Here you can see in one dive the marine life that took me yearssss to see. Sharks, turtles, parrot fish, eagle rays, more rays, did I say Sharks... you name it we have it.  It's truly a diving paradise .  

     

    You are going to find me in the retail store having fun with the amazing team of professional divers that we have on staff, that I'm very honored to called them my family, we work very hard every day to make your vacation one of a kind, come to the retail store lets talk about what divers talk DIVING... and in the mean time we can show you our great selection of dive gear with brands like Aqualung, Suunto, Atomic, Mares, Seac, Dive Rite, Ocean Reef, and many more ( if you a rep. and I forgot your brand send me text and will put it on,  sorry, lol ).  Don't know where to eat, just come to the store and we will send you out to the best restaurants in key largo.
