Get certified before you go to keys. Plenty of places here in pensacola. Dive Pros has an on site heated pool. And does refresher as well as certification courses.

Rainbow Bend is a great, cheap place on Grassy Key (really Marathon) on the Atlantic side and you get a 13ft whaler with the room. Only two miles out to the reef marker. I haven't been there in a long time and I don't know how the hurricane changed it but... it's a 1950's vintage mom & pop motel. Plenty of charters in Marathon, like everywhere in the keys.
