We did a lobster dive out on the reef in Marathon and it was AWESOME!! Jeannie, Swanky, and Capt. Dan were super, very professional, knowledgable and helpful, while boat and equipment was clean and well kept! Totally exceeded my expectations in every way, can’t wait to go out with them again.

Caught lobster pot lines on props coming in to Duck Key. Called Schwenke, and he was at the boat in an hour. He is
an expert professional. He went above and beyond, and is simply a delightful person to know. He saved our trip.

We’ve been in the Keys for a few months and would have traveled 50 miles in either direction to experience a quality Open Dive certification course. This is a family run business and you’re treated as an invited guest to a family dinner. They are 100% safety oriented and the boat captain and dive masters spend lots of time explaining boat procedures, dive procedures and dive sites. During my course I was able to dive on 4 different sites with 2 different dive masters. They had different styles and explained things slightly differently, which I found really helpful because over the 4 day period, everything that they said really sunk in. Would I recommend them? Yes. I’m hoping to sign-up my grown children and their spouses when they visit the Keys again.

I were in Florida for work and only had a little time to see the sights, which I spent on a "discover scuba" course.

Having no experience with snorkling, scuba diving or even swimming in the ocean, I'm very happy that I went with Better Than Most. Jeanie, Schwenke, Dan and Harvey(?) really know how to show you a good time and make sure you are safe.

The instruction was amazing. The atmosphere on the boat was great.
On top of the diving, we got to see dolphins, since they were on the lookout and took the time to circle the boat.
They even took a bunch of very nice pictures - other places would surely have charged me extra for that.

After the trip I heard a couple of experienced divers talking about it being really well run.

I got the feeling that this is the shop where the native Floridans and "people in the know" go to dive.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Better than Most Watersports DELIVERED!! Schwenke, Jeanie, Captain Dan and Hayden were the best crew to go diving with. Good instruction, clean boat and very personable and professional. Returned calls and texts promptly. Will not go to any other outfitter than these guys. We saw dolphins, rays, reef sharks, goliath grouper, snapper and so much more !! Hayden pointed out so many things under water! They gave us local food and drink recommendations for the after party. Truly a lucky find!!!
