About Divers Direct
How many local dive shops can say they have been in business for 30 years? We can!
As diving practices change and grow, so do we! We made our start in 1984 running dive boats at the docks of the Holiday Inn in Key Largo as Holiday Diver Inc. After just one year we began Divers Outlet, providing equipment and supplies to divers in one of the premier dive destinations of Florida. But the coral reefs in Florida extend far beyond Key Largo, so we expanded our backyard to include Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Key West, and Orlando, and called it “Divers Direct.”. We also wanted to cater to divers in the “Wreckreational Dive Capital of the World,” so last year we opened a location in Miami.
Divers Direct is NOT just an internet-based divers supply company.
We are your local dive shop with 6 clean fully stocked super stores PLUS a 7th store on the web for your convenience. We cater to local Florida divers from Orlando down to Key West. We also serve customers from all over the world who journey to go diving on the only living coral reef in the continental U.S., which happens to be located right in Divers Direct’s back yard.
Isn’t Florida beautiful?
Whether it’s drift diving, wreck diving, night diving, cave diving, or shore diving, Florida’s stunning marine life is sure to impress, and we want to help you see it all! Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to help make your experience diving on Florida’s reefs one for the logbooks.

First trip to Key West. Having a great time. Our visit to this place was no exception. Maybe it’s the over abundance of sunshine but everyone seems so friendly. Especially when we stopped in at Divers Direct. Steve helped us with unbridled enthusiasm. Really charismatic personality. Made us feel like family. He helped me find a UPF shirt to wear on our excursion so I wouldn’t burn! Don’t pass this place up. They have everything to enjoy these beautiful waters! Next time we are in town, we will be sure to stop by and say hello.
We were on a cruise ship that arrived in Key West the day before our dive in the Bahamas. I discovered our dive computers were dead and we needed batteries, My husband was sure that we would pay dearly for them, but they were priced as cheap as at home! In addition, Steven helped me adjust my scuba mask after he heard I was concerned because it leaked. Very professional and we are grateful they were there!
