Has anyone dove with Reef Raiders in Key West?
My brother and I are staying at the Galleon Resort
in June and saw Reef Raiders are based there. How
convenient. Right? I need some input, good or bad.
welcome to the sb. You will want to check out the local forums for information on dive operations in Key West. I dove with Captains Corner while I was down there in Feb. of 06 and they were great to dive with.
back in May 2002. And then dove with them again because they were the operator for a cruise ship we were on (Royal Caribbean).
I would say that they are a pretty basic operation. They certainly don't go out of the way to impress you, but they're not unsafe, either.
You could end up on a boat with a bunch of snorkelers, though, which would mean you go to some of the shallower sites.
When we went back to Key West for a third time (again on a cruise), we dove with Lost Reef Adventures and felt we got a much more individualized experience (ie. we got to choose the sites we dove) and it was just us and another diver on the boat (this was late January, I think).
