We had a Great SCUBA dive experience. We are seasoned Florida divers and dive the Keys often. We found Tilden's to have a professional, pleasant, and helpful staff. They have a well run operation with a very kind, caring, knowledgeable, and involved owner/ operator. The shop, boat and ancillary amenities were clean, completely operational, and fulfilled all of our high... More

Captain Billy is the ultimate Professional the other boat Captain was a rude obnoxious jerk. Instructors Pat and and Kyle where always very helpful, One young hotshot instructor actually had the nerve to inform us we where not tipping enough. Having the dive boat filled with snuba people everyday is horrible they are always sick and throwing up for side.... More

This whole place is fantastic! Professional, kind, intelligent... Fun... We could go on and on! Everything is run like a Swiss watch. There is also excellent snuba and snorkeling. If you have a budding marine biologist, this is your place! Big thanks to East Coast divers in Brookline MA for helping us find Tildens! Thanks so much to everyone at... More

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
