Our family was signed up for a snuba trip. Wendy called us to let us know that the water was getting choppy and was worried that it wouldn't be a good experience for the kids. Most places would have just taken our money and not advised against it. Very impressed. She sent us to aquarium encounters instead and called ahead... More

My husband and I recently went on a scuba trip with Tildens and had a great experience. Not only was our rented gear in great shape, but Capitan Billy and Wayne (if we remembered his name correctly!) were very helpful and friendly. The two dive sites we visitied were Sombero Reef and the Ivory Wreck. It might be important to... More

From the first phone call until the last good bye, Tilden's Scuba Center was a great experience. Each staff member, even though they weren't my primary instructor, helped in any way they could to make it a positive adventure. There is no need to shop around while in Marathon, this is the Dive shop to use. Dog friendly in the... More

They charged me two hundred and forty three dollars for just a day of diving because I didn't have a buddy. When the trip was cancelled they said that morning they would refund it but when I called back they said when they cash out and then I called the next day and they still hadn't refunded it. They are... More

Natasha, Ordinarily my biggest disappointment with a poor online review is not having the opportunity to resolve problems in house in order to satisfy our customers. That is not the case this time. You made arraignments on 12/8 to go diving with us on 12/10, after not having dove in almost two years. You own nothing more than a bathing... More

Called and spoke with Timmie… Super helpful! As a beginner I was very nervous to do my first ocean dive. She offered helpful suggestions and a guide to help us. Wonderful experience!

We called the shop to ask about diving and spoke to a nice lady. When we went to the shop in person to inquire the lady we spoke with was short with us. When we told her that we'd like a guide because it was only our second open water dive she proceeded to talk to us like we're stupid.... More

I had a great dive with Tildens Scuba Centre. Captain Pat and potential Dive Master Dave took us out on the boat for a dive. They were very patient, knowledgable and good fun. We were kitted out with everything we needed and with a few tips from Captain Pat of what to look for and the best way to approach... More
