I was a bit scared of diving but as soon as i stepped into Tarpoon Lagoon everyone was wonderful. They go at your pace and you always feel like you are around friends. I had a great time and as soon as the weather warms up, I'm coming back!

It was fun and an easy process to get my PADI Open Water Certification at Tarpoon Lagoon Dive Center in Miami Beach. I took the book portion of the course online and then started the pool session on one Friday afternoon after a review the day before at the dive shop. The pool was next door at Monty's. That Saturday... More

From the moment I walked in to Tarpoon lagoon I was greeted within one minute. I talk from my personal experience. The customer service I was given was great, not only did they answer all my questions, but went above and beyond to accommodate the dives I had to get done in order to receive my open water cert. I... More

Went there yesterday to look at snorkel gear for an upcoming cruise. Not knowing a lot about equipment, we left extremely happy and very pleased with our purchase. Jake was incredibly helpful and informative. Patience is his midle name! I would strongly recommend this shop to anyone having questions and in search of the best equipment for their particular reason.... More

I had my rescue diver courses with Tarpoon Lagoon, the instructor was very nice, patient, and supportive. The class was serious but fun, and compared to other dive shops in south beach, this one caters mostly local divers, they know where to dive, and you will learn a lot of the history and stories in south Florida dive community. I... More

Only in it for the money. With 1200 and 1800 psi left from 2 dives, I was told that it was all about staying within a time limit. The 6 divers never went deeper than 18 feet. Probably because we went to a shallow reef to accommodate a family of snorkelers. I needed to walk away when two principals from... More

Great location (at the marina), and literally a few feet from the dive boat. Staff is really helpful and friendly. Pricing seemed reasonable. They have everything you possibly would need to rent for a dive. Overall a great dive shop and staff....would recommend to anyone headed to Miami for diving.

My wife and I scheduled an afternoon dive of two novice reefs 3 days before departure. We received a call that the winds were too high to dive on the morning of the dive. I greatly appreciate an outfit who will put safety before making some extra money. While we didn't get to dive this time Tarpoon will be our... More
