Back to the Keys for our 13th annual adventure with Buckeye Scuba
April 23-27, 2015
Lucky 13! Scuba Steve is 100% on for the Florida Keys in 2015.
“Last year I missed perfect weather and I wont make that mistake again” says Scuba Steve. We had 24 awesome divers join us in the Florida Keys. The weather was amazing and the diving was spectacular. Sharks, Goliath Groupers, ship wrecks and the best divers you could ask for! Get on the list today because this trip is always a sell out. Our trip is perfect for everyone from the most experienced to our newbies. We have plenty of beautiful reefs with tons of critters to see and amazing ship wrecks to experience. We have 22 spaces so sign up early or miss the boat. $100 deposit is all it takes to join our awesome tradition. Last year proved this trip to be perfect for the families of divers and the non-divers making it more fun than a barrel of sea monkeys. Join Scuba Steve in the northern territory of the “Conch Republic” this spring.
This trip is designed for everyone from the new diver completing open water certification dives, casual certified divers to the advanced diver. Our newbies will be diving on one boat while our advanced divers will be on a separate boat. On Sunday afternoon depending on the group we will take a drive to or Key West for some topside fun. Enjoy a mojito and watch the sun set on the most southerly point in the USA.

First day of diving with Quiescence Dive Center
We will begin certification training for the new divers while the certified divers will go on another boat to more advanced sites (Spiegel Grove). The afternoon is yours to explore, relax by the pool or sign up for another dive trip in the afternoon (not included in base price)!
Saturday April 25, 2015
Second day of diving with Quiescence Dive Center
Final day of certification for our new divers! Our other divers will be doing a deeper dive (possibly the USS Duane) on the first dive and a shallower reef for a second dive. New divers will be doing two shallower reefs/wrecks. This is the good stuff! Once again the afternoon is yours to explore, relax by the pool or sign up for another dive trip in the afternoon (not included in base price)!
Sunday April 26, 2014
Last day of diving. The newly certified divers will be making their first dives with Quiescence Dive Center as certified divers!. Our other divers with be off visiting another wreck or revisiting the Spiegel Grove. This is our last day so we will be celebrating all our accomplishments and enjoying the “Keys Lifestyle”.
Monday April 27, 2015
We will be heading back home on this day unless you want to remain behind. If you are staying longer let us know so we can stay with you! Seriously, this is the departure day and we will be heading back to the airports to fly home. When booking your flights we recommend booking a later afternoon flight as the drive back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale is 2.5 to 3.5 hours on a Monday morning. It is highly recommended you wait 18-24 hours after diving.
** There is a good chance we may stay to have lunch and hang out in Key West for a while since it’s the last day! We might just want to watch the sun set on Key West; it’s a bit of a daily spectacle.
We need a minimum of 10 divers to fill this trip. All we need is a $100 deposit. Full balance will be needed by February 23, 2015
