The tech checked it out and found the regulated cap was lose. He disassembled and properly reassembled. He also found a leaking high pressure line. He replaced the line.... More

Awesome company. We are new to diving and require a little hand holding to get the equipment and the dives organized. The people at Tilden advised and set us up on two different boats, two different days. They are safety conscious and friendly. The dives were on the Atlantic side, and this time of year the winds were up and... More

My boss wanted to buy me a new BC for Xmas, and the owner and staff at Tildens were super helpful! Not only did they help me pick one out, but the owner took the time to adjust all of the straps to fit me, add a knife and a retraction cord, and show me many of the features that... More

On 12/16, wifey and I did the snorkeling option with Tilden's. WOW WHAT A GREAT MORNING! I would HIGHLY SUGGEST that if you are visiting the area, have 1-day to pick a Dive/Scuba Center and want a 10/10 trip, this is the place to go. The shop is fully loaded for whatever you need. The crew was outstanding! (Or better... More

My husband and I had originally ally planned to go snorkeling during our trip to Marathon. We called Captain Hooks and Spirit (both local snorkeling companies) and unfortunately neither of them had any trips available the day we wanted to go. I searched a little more and found Tildens - I'm so glad I did! We signed up for their... More

We went here for a SNUBA trip and found our instructors to be very knowledgeable and helpful. This was our first foray underwater and didn't know what to expect. With the amount of fun that we had, we now plan to get our SCUBA certifications! Much thanks to Aaron and Wayne!

Ok...didn't dive with them...didn't snorkel with them...although that will change on my next trip down. I was actually here to haul sharks and fish for a public aquarium. I dropped a valuable item in the water at a restaurant and at 5:59...they close at 6 called Wayne at the dive center. Not only did he stay open late for me.... More
