During the height of mini lobster season (very busy time for dive shops), I Needed some assistance with buying divers vented ear plugs! Not only did I buy them they took time (Miss Wendy) to size them properly, explain how to use them and offered useful tips on remedy and prevention of ear problems when diving! I had a great...

Husband and I rented a boat for the week we spent in Marathon. We brought down all of our own gear including tanks. We primarily used them for tank refills which in checking around they have the best prices if doing multiple tank fills and the best set up for dropping off/picking up. One of the staff gave my husband... More

My husband and I dove for 3 days, a total of 6 dives. Had a great time. We are both experienced divers, and appreciated that we were not herded around under water. Mornings were best, as the boat didn't have as many snorkelers. Bring your own snacks.

My friends and I took a spearfishing class with Wendy in June. We learned a lot while having lots of fun and staying safe. Wendy has the perfect amount of safety-mindedness without being inflexible. (I've taken many scuba classes with different instructors and seen the whole range of too laid back to not paying close enough attention to students.) The... More

We picked Tilden's based on TripAdvisor reviews and are so thrilled that we did. James and Wayne were our dive masters and Captain Billy got us there and back safely, and we couldn't have asked for a more fun, informative, professional, and all around enjoyable crew. I'm a certified diver but my boyfriend would be doing Snuba, so we were... More

We have those here on several occasions for 2 years and it has always been a great experience. We decided to try their fishing charter for a half day treat for ourselves. We live in the Gulf Coast and do a lot of offshore fishing. This was the most unorganized trip I have ever been on. we rode out to... More

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
