First night dive

Captain Bill and Dive Master Ryan made my first night dive and my first lobster hunting dive amazing. They were professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the area.

My family, wife, 11 and 13 year old and my Mom went SNUBA diving for the first time with Tilden's in Marathon. What a bunch of professionals that really took care of us. They gave us a thorough training session, followed up by a two location two tank dives on Sombrero Reef and another close by. I was very happy... More

My 13 year old son and I just got our open water certification a few weeks back and planned our first trip to the Keys for a salt water dive. Our home dive shop in central Florida recommended Tilden's so we gave them a shot. I spoke to Murphy on the phone and she was really great. She recommended that... More

I highly recommend Tilden's scuba center. We took a resort course in the morning and had 2 dives in the afternoon. Our instructor, James Wood, was excellent.

We shop at Tilden's every year on our annual trip to Marathon. Today, although it was the first day of Lobster season, I brought my speargun in for a new shaft. My gun is rigged a bit differently so it took a few minutes and some speargun expertise from the Tilden's staff to get the right parts to fix my... More

We use this Dive Shop for every visit to Marathon and as far as the shop goes, we always receive excellent service. We also always enter the Lobster Rodeo during Mini Season. The "Rules" were changed up last year to include Lion Fish as part of the winning qualification. We thought this was an interesting change that raised the bar... More

Well, this is one we didn't expect to see... We have had an extremely friendly tournament. Tilden's has donated the money collected to great causes. Last year we had a local, Cathy McCoy, who was suffering with bone cancer and we donated over $3500+ in cash and gave away over $8k in prizes. To make the story better she is... More

We are a family with three certificated divers and wanted to plan half day trips - single or double tank dives. As the scuba center was close to our hotel we passed by to receive information. The lady in the dive shop didn't answer any of our questions. After a few minutes we really felt uncomfortable. As the lady realized... More

Dive master: Aaron Daughter and I did SNUBA and had a great time. Safe boat. Aaron's good with kids. I'm a certified diver and they do a great job making non divers feel comfortable.
