About the Islamorada Dive Center

Islamorada114The 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.

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. Thanks for stopping by!
