Better than most scuba is our go to dive boat in the FL. Keys. Great crew and the reefs they go to out of Duck Key are some of the healthiest in the middle Keys. No pressure from all the other dive operators. No cattle boat here, nice smaller boat. You can't go wrong with Better Than Most Scuba.

My experience with the Better Than Most crew was simply outstanding. It was my wife's first open water experience and Schwenke (our Divemaster) spent a few hours going over basic skills in the swimming pool adjacent to the dock and had her feeling very comfortable. When we arrive at Sombrero Reef, we received a thorough briefing from both Schwenke and Capt. Booker. Once we entered the water, my wife was still a little anxious and Schwenke was very patient and reassuring with her. In a few short minutes we were on the reef and she was diving like an old veteran! We had rented some of our gear and it was in top working order. The dive boat was clean and the crew was very friendly. I've been diving for over 20 years and would rate this operation at the very top. We will be returning next year and you can bet we will be booking with the Better Than Most crew!

I keep having to write reviews because every experience is excellent! The crew at Better than Most consistently delivers the best diving experience in all the Florida Keys! Their attention to detail, friendliness, professionalism and safety make them our preferred dive operator and that says a lot coming from 2 retired dive professionals who have run boats and shops throughout Florida and the Caribbean. We cannot recommend them highly enough and it should make your decision to choose Better than Most an easy one. Thank you again, Schwenke and Jeannie, Capt. Booker and everyone we have dove with. Keep up the good work!

Just finished three days of diving with Better Than Most while getting my Advanced Open Water PADI certification and couldn’t be happier. Here’s why: The guides, staff and BTM crew: Everyone was very professional but also super fun. Great people to both learn from and hang out with! Equipment (incl. boat): Very happy with all the gear - clean, well looked after and no issues whatsoever. Dive site selection: In a word - epic! Great mix of reefs and wreck with tons of marine life. Course instruction: The AOW course over three days was well structured. We did theory on boat rides out to dive sites and covered the skills during the first part of each dive which left the remaining dive to explore and have fun! Value for money: All in price was $886 which was the AOW course of $695, an “Automatic” gratuity of $139 + tax. PADI eLearning was included in the course (some other shops make you pay an additional $190 for the PADI eLearning, whereas BTM includes it in the $695). I did a decent amount of research and the all-in price was fair compared to what I’ve seen elsewhere so very happy with the value. Overall super solid experience and would highly recommend!

Spear fishing and lobstering!! I had a blast!! Didn't have to worry about getting a license. The dive company had a license that covered me and my family as well as any other divers that wanted to hunt. Less stress that way. Jeanie and Schwenke were professional and fun. We were made to feel like family!! And we enjoyed our Captain's Dan and Booker!! Highly recommend Better Than Most Dive company!! The reefs they took us to were beautiful! And teeming with life!! Already planning our next trip from Louisiana to dive with Better Than Most!
