It was great and friendly service. We did 3 days of 2 tank dives. Very friendly and helpful group there from the shop to the boat crews. I had equipment problems with my own gear and they fixed my gear while I used extra gear they keep on the boat just for these type of events. We did Sombero reef,... More

I was in the Florida Keys Scuba diving with friends and lost my GoPro. The dive operator we used does not carry GoPro but they referred me to Tilden's...a competitor of theirs (which says lot)! I walked into Tilden's an was greeted with big smiles by their friendly staff. Instead of making me feel like an idiot for losing my... More

We stayed in Marathon and heard a lot about the diving in the area. We booked a 2 tank dive and can honestly say it was one of the worst scuba experiences for our family. When we entered the shop it was obvious the folks purchasing equipment were given the most attention. In fitting us for our scuba gear I... More

In July 2015 we dove with the wonderful staff at Tildens. 4 of us were certified divers and 3 teenagers ranging from 13 to 17 did "discovery" dives I could not have been more pleased with my choice as the teenagers had an awesome expirence. They had a blast at the pool where they had to learn to use the... More

My husband and I have been going to Hawks Cay and have gotten to know the Dive Duck Key crew really well over the last 4 years. So it was the obvious choice to ring them when it came time to buy the husband his diving gear as an anniversary gift. What I wasn't expecting was how above and beyond... More

We went out for a snuba trip with us (2 adults),another person for snuba, two snorklers and several divers. The snuba instructor,James, was excellent. Unfortunately, after we were in the water, the other snuba participate just didn't get it. We spent the first site, about an hour, standing in one place waiting for the other person to follow directions. We... More

Myself and father-in-law chose Tilden's in Marathon, Fl for a two-tank dive. It's right down the street from our hotel, Tranquility Bay Resort. We booked our dive the day before and they were very accommodating. We brought our own gear and put us right at the back of the boat for easy entrance/exit in the water. It was a little... More

This is a hard review to do. It's one of those...on one hand...but on the other hand. The staff was professional and attentive, but they put too many people on the boat for its size and we were very cramped. Our party of four was the only snorkelers on this tour, the other 9 people were out to Snuba. So... More

If you want a professional, safe crew who wants to give you a terrific experience; Tilden's is your place! From Timmie at the front desk to our captain Billy; everyone we encountered did an amazing job! If you need a guide, Wayne is the only dive master to get! He finds stuff you would never see on your own and... More

We gave our son a trip to the FL Keys to get his diving certification for graduation. We realized that his first day of class, we signed him up for the wrong class. Between Tilden's and Dive Duck Key they were able to put him in the classes he needed. They made it happen. It was everything he expected and... More
