Sent an e-mail question in on pricing - No Answer. Foolishly sent money via Paypal for a dive to make sure I had a reservation. Followed it up with another e-mail question that received - No Answer. (They did however accept and process my Paypal payment) Called the shop twice to coordinate my dive - No answer. Went to the... More

Been going to Fred's for many years, done everything from take 10 staff for their first dives to just me and buddy doing some more advanced dives. He's off the beaten path, but don't kid yourself, this is a reputable dive shop with everything you need. No glitz and glamour, just honest fair priced great service. You will not be... More

I did a small bit of research before deciding on the dive shop I wanted to do my open water certification. There were other dive shops who seemed to offer a "better price" but I believe in getting what you pay for. My Spanish is sub par so I thought I would really enjoy learning without a huge language barrier.... More

Clemente took us on our dive. He is a very nice man that knows the ocean very well. There were five divers and him. He made sure we all had a good time and experience. He definitely cares about people and the undersea life as well. Thank you. Roger Columbus, Ohio

We used Scuba Fred's for myself and my daughter's checkout dives. Alfredo was our dive master and was very detailed in the reviews, testing, and pre-dive planning. Other outfits might charge more and have better facilities, but Scuba Fred's had a personal touch and accommodated my daughters request to do one of the dives at the underwater museum. Other dive...

A small operation run out of the Clipper Club. At first made me a little nervous, but soon realized what a great choice we had made. The attention to safety was tremendous and refreshing. 4 divers per guide. Very carefully went through a dive plan before every dive, tested a few of your skills on the first dive to get... More

It was my first time scuba diving, and what an amazing experience, thanks especially to Fred, who has a rare mix of patience and enthusiasm. I was a last minute booking, and Fred was very accommodating and put me at ease. I couldn't stop talking about it when I got back to my hostel! Now Fred may not have the... More

NOT A RELIABLE DIVE MASTER!!!! My husband contacted Scuba Fred a few months prior to going to Cancun, stating that I had taken the online PADI course & was looking to complete my PADI certified open water course. Fred said yes he could do that for us. So he was aware we were coming months in advance & we paid... More

I had a great time scuba diving with this group. It's a small outfit but I almost prefer it that way. It felt very personal and the diving spots were diverse and had lots of sea life to see.

I booked with Fred before I went to Cancun through his website. Given the positive reviews and some of the cheapest prices I figured why not? Paid with paypal ahead of time and had nothing to do when I got to the shop but fill out a form and go diving! The group is small and the boat for ocean... More
