Ocean First has opened a new location in Key Largo, Florida. Often regarded as the diving capital of the States, the tropical waters of the Keys boasts an incredible diversity of marine environments, including mangroves, seagrass beds, and stunning coral reefs.


Ocean First has been a pioneer in the dive industry for over 15 years and we’ve brought that same level of progressive excellence to our amazing Key Largo location. Whether learning to dive, continuing your education, or participating in one of our citizen science research projects, at Ocean First Key Largo you’re bound to have an experience that lasts a lifetime. 

  • Our location is situated at the internationally acclaimed Marine Lab and Jules Undersea Lodge, allowing us to have access to interactive classrooms, wet labs, dorms, and a very unique underwater habitat.   
  • As the premiere SSI training center in North America, at Ocean First you can rest assured you’ll receive top-notch training and service for your professional training needs.
  • Our Coast Guard certified captain, Sharky Alexander, knows the Keys inside and out and always goes the extra mile to ensure all our customers enjoy their time on the water.


We are very excited to share this new expansion with you and we hope to see you blowing bubbles down in the Keys with us soon! This location is perfect for scheduling your open water dives to finish any certifications you may start in Boulder, learning to dive with your family and friends while traveling, or booking private charters with our amazing captains.

Congrats on the new location. I have 4 kids that need to finish up their PADI cert. They all need the open water part of the certification. Is that something that you will be doing in FL? If so, can you give me a cost estimate?
