I recently (3/30 & 3/31) went with Tilden's Scuba Center for two days of snorkeling; Coffin's Patch & Sombrero Lighthouse (along with a smaller reef each day). My school has been using Tilden's for the past 8 years, though priced higher than some competitors, you get what you pay for. The captain and crew were great and professional and dealt... More

Timi, a ray of sunshine on any day once again took wonderful care of my friends who were visiting the keys. Highly regarded by locals and return visitors alike as a quality operation.

I spent two weeks in Marathon in March and thought about doing some dives there, although I spent most of my dive time up in Key Largo. Did a couple trips with Tildens last year and they did an okay job. I stopped in the shop three times and each time, the same lady (not the owner) was working and... More

I had wanted to snuba with an outfit that understood kids and that's what I found with Tilden. As an experienced diver, I was able to understand just how good their check out procedure was and it was just wanted I wanted. All the staff I met both in the shop and on the boat couldn't have been nicer. We... More

My boyfriend and I had an awesome, first-time SNUBA experience (aside from getting seasick :/). When you first get there, you will be required to fill out some paperwork, so arrive a little earlier than your scheduled time. You are then fitted for snorkel gear and a wet suit (trust me, you need this. It keeps you warm and protected).... More

We are on a family vacation. Our 11 year old is scuba certified (as well as my husband & I), and we wanted to find a SNUBA shop for our 8 year. Tilden's worked out great for all of us. I spent time emailing the shop to be able to accommodate our needs and the responses were promptly answered. Today... More

Yesterday we had an absolutely amazing snorkeling trip with Tilden's. Their staff was great.... friendly, attentive and fun! Also, I was recently involved in a fund raiser for a local non-profit. Tilden's was extremely, I mean EXTREMELY, generous in their donation to the community.

Five of us went out with Tildens today. One snorkeled and four snubaed. Training was clear and easy to understand. the day was well orchestrated.We went to two sites, saw a lot of unique coral and sealife. I will definitely do this the next time we are here.

What a great experience! The staff was wonderful. My husband and I took our two girls on a snuba trip here. Wayne was awesome with my kids. My oldest (14) now wants to get certified in scuba because of this trip! If you're in Marathon Key and looking for something fun to do, this should be it!
