SCUBA Diving In Key West
Scuba diving in Key West is one of the most unique scuba diving experiences you can have as a diver. Imagine not having to wear a wetsuit since the water is a pleasant 80 degrees much of the year. And with our quick six pack boats, you can be diving a barrier reef within an hour of checking in at our shop.  Once you get to the reef, you will scuba dive with a few friends and our qualified dive master and/or guides. Key West’s waters offer some amazing dive site variety as well.  We have dives at Key West’s reef (check out our dives page for prices on our 2 tank reef dive), we have wrecks to dive as well.  Such as the Vandenberg (we have a 2 tank dive available for the Vandenberg too), if you want variety – dive both, ask about our combo dive trip.  Also some of our most popular trips are our Key West night dives and our Dry Tortugas dives.

One Stop Dive Shop

–  FINZ Dive Center is your one stop dive shop for all your Key West diving and spearfishing needs.  Finz offers a complete assortment of dive equipment and services. Our licensed USCG six pack captains are some of the most knowledgeable and experienced in the Florida Keys, we always provide a professional guide for each dive. Even if you are not going out with us, we still have you covered.As a full-service dive shop, we have all your equipment, on-site air tank fills and a qualified comprehensive repair center. Whether you need spear gun repair or rigging services, need new dive equipment, tackle, bait, or snacks, we are your one stop before hitting the water.

Looking For New Gear?
Need a consultation on the newest complete diving kits or suggestions on what to replace on your current set-up? Give us a call or come on in and see how we can help you.  In addition, we have a great assortment of some of the best snorkel and freediving gear to get you on your way at a price that won’t break the bank.
Not Your Typical Dive Shop
FINZ Dive Center is not your stereotypical Key West dive shop. We don’t load you onto a school bus sized boat with 23 other divers and take you to the same three spots that the other Key West dive shops are going to. Looking for something beyond the normal dive? We want your experience to be more unique, intimate, and memorable. We focus our dives on smaller six pack sized boats. This allows us to take you or you and your party to some of the most fantastic spots in and around Key West. Sure, we’ll take you to the dive spots you’ve read about before you arrived in Key West, but our experienced divers also know some dive spots that haven’t even made the magazines yet. Our smaller boats allow us to take you to more dive spots and since they are smaller, the boats are faster, putting you in the water quicker. In addition to tank dives, we also want to take you freediving, spearfishing and snorkel fishing.

Six Pack Boats
Our boats seat six divers comfortably. Smaller boats equal better dive spots. Small groups, couples, and solo divers benefit from our more intimate approach to dive trips. Dive with people you know and like instead of a couple dozen people you’ve never met. Less people also gives you better access and better visibility of our miles of natural coral barrier reef, schools of fish like the blue-striped grunts, sharks, eels, wrecks, etc. .

Freediving & Snorkel Trips
We are blessed here in Key West and the Florida Keys to have some of the best waters to skin dive/free dive/snorkel. Whether you want to take a break from the tanks, or you aren’t certified yet (we can help you there too: complete certification from refresher to dive master), or you just prefer freediving, our Key West dive guides will show you some of our favorite spots. We can also take you to some pretty cool spots if you just want to snorkel too. Our six packs also allow us to take our snorkelers to shallower reef spots with slower currents and fewer hazards. If you are new to diving, that’s cool too, we can go to safer dive spots that will still give you some of the best snorkel memories ever.

 

Night Scuba Diving
One of our favorite ways to experience scuba diving is during the night. Our well-lit boat will take you to an entirely new world. At night everything changes, corals open up, fish lose their fear of people, colors change, and the entire experience becomes magical. We bring our own light source into the water which brings out colors you wouldn’t normally see. Many underwater creatures are nocturnal and only forage for food at night so the entire ecosystem changes. Some of the most memorable dives we have are created after the sun goes down.

On night dives we provide lights if you need them and our experienced dive guides will lead you to the most amazing sites. We even pack a little surprise into each dive.

Most of our divers choose the reef for the night experience but if you are advanced open water certified or higher we offer a night dive on our flagship wreck, The Vandenberg! This is an experience like no other. The current moves water across the many structures on the wreck and lights it up with the natural bioluminescent. It is impossible to describe the beauty of this dive. When the crew of Finz want to go out for a night dive we almost always choose the Vandenberg as our destination. Come experience it for yourself.

If you’re ready to try a new way to dive or already know how amazing night diving can be then book now to experience Finz Night Dive.

Finz Night Dive is a 2 tank dive and lasts approximately 4 hours. Our first dive is a twilight dive and the second is after the sun goes down.

The Dry Tortuga's National Park Dives

The Dry Tortugas National Park is one of the most amazing places on earth. Situated 70 miles from Key West it is secluded from most of the pressures of human development. The water is crystal clear and the coral reefs are unbelievable. Some of the coral structures rise 50ft from the bottom straight up. Fish life is everywhere and there are species you will only find inside the park. We have one of the few permits to be able to dive inside the national park and will safely take you and your dive buddies to dive sites you could never forget.

Some of the sites we visit are the Maze, the Bat Caves, Dantes Inferno, and Sherwood Forest just to name a few. With the ability to explore the fort during part of our entire day adventure you will be taken back through history and can imagine just how wonderful fort Jefferson really is.

This charter typically lasts 10-12 hours and is an all-day adventure. Lunch is provided as well as snacks. It is an unforgettable experience that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Reef Diving

Finz is known for our exceptional customer service, personal attention to detail, and relaxed atmosphere. Our 2 tank reef dive is full of amazing fish and coral life and is sure to amaze you. The trip starts with meeting our professional crew and getting you outfitted with any equipment you may need. We take all your stuff to the boat and a few minutes later we are moving through the mangroves on the way to our ocean dive site.

 

Finz is the fastest 6 pack dive boat in the lower keys which means more time in the water for you. Our short boat ride is sometimes interrupted by various wildlife including dolphins, turtles, or manatees. Once we arrive at the reef site our divemaster leads the plunge into the ocean and leads you on the most amazing adventure you are sure to experience on your vacation. Finz reef dive is full of amazing colors of both hard and soft corals, sea fans, fish life, and other marine creatures. Our divers have seen Turtles, Dolphins, Rays, Eels, Sharks, and more on the Finz reef dive.

We do not limit our dives on an arbitrary time, like some other shops. Our dive time is limited by safe diving practices and comfort in the water. Finz always provides a divemaster in the water with our divers allowing you more comfort and opportunity to experience the dive. The divemaster will help you to remain safe and comfortable throughout your adventure. Once your time underwater is done our crew will transfer your gear to the next tank and prepare you for the next part of your adventure.

Finz reef dive is the best way to experience the longest dive with the most wildlife anywhere. Our 6 pack dive boats are fully equipped to take your group diving comfortably on any of the many reef sites around Key West.

Wreck Diving
Finz Wreck Dive is the best way to experience our amazing artificial reefs. Key West is home to the second largest artificial reef in the world. USNS Hoyt S Vandenberg. At over 520 feet long and 70 ft wide she is the most popular wreck in the lower keys and the favorite of our crew. The main deck is at 100ft and is the perfect depth to utilize Nitrox on your dive. The satellite dishes are mostly intact and huge! Fish life is abundant and the wreck is filled with species only seen on deeper dives. Sharks are often seen on our dives along with Goliath Grouper, Rays, Barracuda, and many other species.

Finz is the fastest dive boat in Key West so we are usually the only ones on the wreck on our first dive of the day. The first divers on the wreck get to see the wildlife undisturbed. Thousands of divers have explored the wreck since 2009 when she was sunk and is a must dive.

Combo Reef & Wreck Diving

Finz Combo dive is a mix between the adventure of a wreck dive and the beauty of a reef dive. We will start out on one of our 3 major wrecks for our first dive. You will explore the history and mystery of one of the keys artificial reefs with your professional dive guide. For the second dive we will move to shallower water and explore part of the third largest barrier coral reef in the world.

You get the best of both dives in a fun relaxed atmosphere.

Private Chartered Dives
Finz private charters are the most flexible way to scuba. We offer two, three, or 4 tank dives to dive sites that no one else visits. Booking a private charter means the boat is yours for up to 6 guests. Want to do two dives have lunch on a secluded beach and then do another dive? No problem! We can mix and match any of your favorite activities including scuba diving, backcountry exploring, dolphin watching, lunch on a sandbar, snorkeling, spearfishing, sunset cruises and more. We specialize in custom requests so if you want to do it we can probably make it happen.

Book now or contact us to find out how we can make your vacation unforgettable.

With our unique reef structure and variety of fish, your dive will be unforgettable and will probably yield a pretty good dinner.

Snorkel Fishing (a 'Must Try')

At Finz we are always looking for fun ways to get out on the ocean. Finz Snorkel Fishing is the newest way we can have fun! We have combined the best part of fishing with the best parts of snorkeling and created an interactive experience like no other. With our custom built waterproof rod and reels we actually get into the water and watch what fish do as they bite our line. Floating on the surface and looking down at the action causes a new understanding of how fish react and interact when we fish for them. You can’t explain how exciting it is to see the fish swimming on the bottom, drop your line to them, watch them eat your bait, and reel it in from the water.

Finz Snorkel Fishing can be done in some areas that are protected from spearfishing meaning the fish are bigger and so is the excitement. Come try this new way to fish and see for yourself how exhilarating it can be!

Finz Snorkel Fishing trips are best done on a full day Tortugas trip but can be booked for a 4,6 or 8-hour private charter.
