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

Great snuba experience! The dive was incredible, makes me want to get certified. Guide Kyle was patient and attentive. Told me "its your vacation, want you to have fun"...and I did! Entire staff/crew professional and friendly. Cannot wait to do it again!!

We purchased a set of fin straps and being novices were unable to get them on the fins. Unknowingly we did a big no no and accidentally pulled one of the straps from the clasp. We brought them back thinking they were the wrong ones. Staff showed us how to install them and replaced the one strap that we pulled... More

Great day on the water with Captain Billy and Kelly. We had 2 divers and 6 snorkelers on the boat. Very safe boat and crew. 1st stop at Sombrero Reef had good visibility and bountiful fish. 2nd stop cut short due to sightings of 2 water spouts - see photo. Captain Billy quickly got us out of the water and... More

We stopped in for a dive filter to use on our new Gopro but instead we chatted with the most honest and helpful sales staff. They did not try to oversell us anything. Though we were willing to purchase more accessories. They took almost an hour and showed us how to connect to our Apple devices and so many more... More

Captain Pat and his crew just took us on an amazing boat ride. The SNUBA and snorkeling were excellent and the service at Tilden's is top rate. Would do this again in a heartbeat!

Used this dive charter base d on fellow Tripadvisor recommendations. I was not disappointed! Hired a guide since I was diving alone. Kyle was wonderful. Shared a lot of useful facts and was sure to point out several species I would have missed if he was not there. I rented their equipment and it was all top grade. In my... More

I received a GoPro3 as a birthday gift, and was told to return to where is was purchased (Tildens) to receive a brief lesson on how to use it. What I got was a lot more than brief, Wendy completely assembled it for me, linked it via wi-fi to my iphone, and gave me a compote tutorial, explaining all of... More

Booked a trip for 2 to snorkel. Driving from Key Largo which was about 1 1/2 hr drive. They called our cell phone to cancel us just as we were arriving; only 1/2 hr before departure time. Wish they would have given us more notice, they were aware that we were coming from Key Largo. Their reason was there was... More

I went down to marathon for a dive trip and to do some spear fishing for the opening of grouper season. The gun that I had was given to me by a family member and the handle/ trigger was broken. The staff at Tildens knew exactly what needed to be done to my gun and gave their personal input on... More
