Florida Keys Dive Center was founded by Pam Meyer and Tom Timmerman in 1983 with one mission: to provide a reputable, friendly, and professional dive shop in the Upper Keys.
The shop was started with only one small boat, 5 BCDs, and a willingness to provide unparalleled customer service to both local and traveling clientele. Throughout the ’80s, our dive center quickly grew through acquisitions of more accommodating boats, an increase in our number of staff members, and an expanding passionate customer base.
With physical expansion occurring at a quickening rate, so was the reputation of Florida Keys Dive Center. The business came to be known as the dependable and experienced solution in the Upper Keys. Through an amusing mistake in the original store sign, die-hard customers bestowed the informal nickname “Flakeys” upon the business.
Since then, we have certified over 12,000 divers from all over the globe, ranging from beginner divers to Master Instructors. Our unrivaled customer service enables us to individually meet every need of our customers with a personal and friendly touch.
We look forward to having you aboard!
