Islamorada Dive Center, Florida

The Islamorada Dive Center (IDC) is a full service PADI scuba diving resort in the Florida Keys, offering daily guided scuba diving trips, scuba instruction, and private dive charters. You can find us at Postcard Inn Beach Resort and Marina at Holiday Isle (mile marker 84 along the Overseas Highway), 15 minutes South of Key Largo and a short drive from Key West and the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area. Famous for the creation of the “Rumrunner”, the Postcard Inn is a favorite for beach bums, boaters and beyond.

Whether you’re looking for wrecks or reefs, IDC has your ticket. We are one of the top dive destinations in the world. People come from as nearby as Florida and as far away as Australia and New Zealand to visit our dive sites. Our dive guides are renowned wreck and reef experts who will take you on thrilling tours, illuminating the wonders of the deep.

While we know it’s all about the dive, IDC is a comprehensive experience. Your adventure begins the minute you walk through our doors. Our friendly and experienced staff handles all the details of your trip, from making sure you have all the gear that’s right for you to setting it up on the boat to spraying it down for you at the end of the day. Everything will be taken care of when you’re on an IDC dive. Our neighbor, the Postcard Inn Resort, has been newly renovated and offers its guests an oceanfront white sand beach unlike anything else in the Keys. After diving with us just once, we feel confident that you’ll be ready to join the Islamorada Dive Center family and make IDC your home dive shop whenever you’re around.

Visit Our Shop

Many have called our shop a unique blend of rustic, industrial and chic. It’s not your normal dive shop with gear and gadgets and swag that are customary in boutique type shops.

Designed as a rustic industrial space, its packed full of not only top of the line scuba gear, but endless apparel, and gifts.  Steps from our boat, our pool, the raw bar and the tiki bar- at the perfect location.

Our Boat

Our flagship is the Aquatic Freedom. A 2014 46ft Newton Dive special that is fully equipped for diving and snorkeling. She can take 36 divers plus crew, but at IDC we try not to load the boats to capacity. We want maximum comfort and space for all our divers – no packed-cattle boats here. With over 500 sq. ft. of deck space, speed and comfort await you on your way to another great day diving with IDC.

We also have 3 “6pack” charter boats that you can take out as private charters with your own captain and guide.

Come on down, folks, the water is fine-and the fish can’t wait to see you.
