They really treat you like family. The staff is very knowledgable and attentive, and truly cares about the safety of the snorkeling/snuba experience.The entire boat/dive crew was great! Thanks Tilden's!

My husband and I had just received our scuba certificate. We received our diving certificate in July and had taken our first salt water dive with another company on July 26. We had a really bad experience with this company and we were about to hang up our gear forever. We gained the nerve to try diving one more time... More

My family has been going to Tilden's for years. They really treat you like family. The staff is very knowledgable and attentive. Timmy is my favorite! She has the coolest name and an even better personality!

We had a great diving experience -4 divers and 5 snorkelers Captain Don made sure us divers had plenty of "space" and dive time. Sombrero Reef was nice, like an aquarium ! Dive shop staff was very friendly and helpful, especially when we were looking for a good local seafood restaurant for lunch!!! Good luck to the Spinys and Spines... More

While diving in the keys we stopped into Tildens to pick up some things including a new shorty for myself, my son, and his girlfriend. In addition we picked up a new GoPro camera setup. They treated us right, just don't talk to the owner about split find, she's passionate about not liking them. That was a minor inconvenience for... More

We purchased a set of fin straps and being novices were unable to get them on the fins. Unknowingly we did a big no no and accidentally pulled one of the straps from the clasp. We brought them back thinking they were the wrong ones. Staff showed us how to install them and replaced the one strap that we pulled... More

Great day on the water with Captain Billy and Kelly. We had 2 divers and 6 snorkelers on the boat. Very safe boat and crew. 1st stop at Sombrero Reef had good visibility and bountiful fish. 2nd stop cut short due to sightings of 2 water spouts - see photo. Captain Billy quickly got us out of the water and... More

We stopped in for a dive filter to use on our new Gopro but instead we chatted with the most honest and helpful sales staff. They did not try to oversell us anything. Though we were willing to purchase more accessories. They took almost an hour and showed us how to connect to our Apple devices and so many more... More
