No need to be scuba certified for this type diving, anyone can do it. Normally when diving you would need heavy tanks and heavy gear, with our diving you don't need any of that. Which allows you to maneuver in the water much easier and allows you to stay down longer without worry about using up the air. You can truly enjoy, the crystal clear water. Then if you love diving you can get certified and dive anywhere in the world.
We use a hookah rig system which is a compressor on our boat. It pumps air through a filter down to 6 air lines that are 150 feet long. We believe this type of diving is very safe because you are attached to the boat. 6 people can go under at a time. Its a great way to try diving before getting certified. Or if this is a bucket list thing you will only do once.
A fun and easy way to experience diving for the first time. In our experience kids can do this type of diving without difficultly. Each one of the hoses is attached to the boat and strong enough to pull yourself back to the boat. We at FL Keys Unique Diving feel this is a safe way to dive. If unable to swim or under the age of 6 you must wear a life vest at all times on the boat and in the water.
We do not offer deep diving, the deepest we offer is about 25' You will never have to worry about decompressing or any other issues that may occur from passing an atmosphere change. Plus, there is more light in shallow water which means better color, more briliant fish colors and more beautiful reef scenery. Best time of day to dive is when the sun in high.
Snacks, drinks, Towels, hat, sunscreen, and a camera. We do recommend having your own mask and fins because they usually fit better. We will provide them if needed but other than have a fun day diving. Things get lost in the water very easy. Please leave jewelry at home or in the boat. Our trips are usually about 4 hours. Please go before getting on the boat
We do not go out in seas over 6' or in over 15 MPH winds. But even in calmer seas you can get sick. Its best to take something like dramamine or ginger the night before and again in the morning 1-2 hours before getting on the boat. Also if you have sinus problems its best to take a decongestant before going out even if you don't feel clogged. We will always do our best to make sure our guests have as much fun as possible, but If we have to come in due to someone getting sick, that will be the end of our day. Sorry no money back once we have left the dock.
