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

I am not sure I can say enough good things about Tilden's Scuba Center. Two dive buddies and I like diving in the Keys. We habe been to Key Largo several times and decided to do something different so we looked at Marathon. Not knowing the area, we looked at the online reviews and called around. After we talked to...

He is very easy to understand and communicates in personable manner. The captain of the boat - Billy was lots of fun and has a good sense of humor to go along with keeping... More

My girlfriend and I went out on an afternoon dive trip on Saturday, October 4. When we were signing up for the trip, I was a little impressed with the clerk/salesperson light up-selling. She bought some sea sickness pills and I bought a rash guard. When we got to the boat, there were only 5 people going out, and three... More

I scheduled a resort dive (Discover Scuba) elsewhere. After calling the day before and talking to them, I arrived early and was psyched. Just before I was to get together with the instructor, they were going to charge me $75 more because I was the only one taking the course. Needless to say, I did not pay the extra fee.... More

On a dive trip to the Florida Keys, my husband and I wanted to learn how to hunt invasive Lionfish. Most dive operators didn't want to take us, but Tilden's was eager to do so. We had a fantastic experience and dives with Kyle who showed us how to use the lionfish slings and capture bag. On two dives we... More
