Live Aboard Dive Boat in the Florida Keys

Join us for an adventure of a lifetime....

The waters surrounding the Florida coast have been traveled for more than a thousand years. Our live aboard journey will take us from Key Largo to Key West exploring some of the many submerged vessels along these shores. What better way to get away and decompress from the dog days of summer? Come dive on the live-aboard dive vessel R/V Kate with the gang at Blue Iguana Charters in the Florida Keys. Bathed by the clear, warm waters of the Gulf Stream the Florida Keys is unquestionably one of the world's best shipwreck diving destinations. The number, variety, and size of the wrecks and the spectacular marine life that grows on them are unequaled.

Scuba Diving in warm, tropical water is great enough, but when you combine the perfect water conditions with amazing visibility and underwater life, then you have one incredible scuba diving destination!

These are just a few of the shipwrecks that we have to dive on here in the Florida Keys. Think about it, no passports, no customs to deal with great food, great friends and great diving...amazing. The list of shipwrecks that we have here are unparalleled to none.

  • USS Spiegel Grove
  • USCGC Duane

Passenger Information
You may board the “R/V KATE” anytime the evening of the day before your trip after 7:00 P.M. and put away your gear. This is a good time to meet the crew and get acquainted with the vessel. We have a great local pub next door called “Shipwrecks” which is a great place to have some great food at reasonable prices. We will meet back at the boat at 8:00 P.M. to address paperwork and briefings. Sometime around 10:00 P.M. the “KATE” will head out and hook up to the mooring balls at the first dive site. You will awake to a wonderful breakfast. As soon as you are ready you can start your first dive of the day. We normally pick a shallow dive, something in the 30 foot range or less, to get everyone acquainted with the Florida Keys water. (and your weight adjusted.) Dive two will be a deep wreck such as the USS Spiegel Grove followed by a reef dive. By now it should be close to lunchtime, and Chef will have us a hardy meal spread out in the galley. This is followed by two more dives, and then a nice home cooked dinner. Weather permitting after dinner we will do a night dive on a shallow reef. After that it’s time to anchor up in a nice protected area, and settle in for the night, maybe watch a movie from Capt Scotty’s collection, maybe watch some video that one of the guest shot during the day or just sit up on the top deck and watch the stars and enjoy the night air. The schedule for the whole week will be very close to this. We will travel more than 250 miles up and down the wonderful Florida Keys coast line making our journey. We will be diving the best reefs and shipwrecks that the Keys have to offer. If you are interested in this trip give me a call at 561-385-2385 or drop me a email at . Capt Scotty
