Greg, Bo and Tim are some of the best people you could find! They will make sure you have a dive experience that matches your desires and abilities. Local charters are great...but the weekenders to Jupiter and the Keys are awesome. The Bus makes it convenient and fun! If you are just starting, needing to knock the rust off or... More

It was my first time diving for 6 months, they made me feel very welcome as this was my first time diving in the Gulf of Mexico. They were very professional and friendly and they made the whole experience great for me, the only downside was the weather, but that is not their fault. Just wish I could dive with... More

I've been diving for over four years now both locally and traveling around and this was the only shop that i had any issues with at all. Will never step foot in the shop again, good luck to everyone else who does business with them

We recently completed our Instructor Development course with Florida Underwater Sports and had a great experience. The staff was completely supportive, and course director Tim Perrault went above and beyond the call, making himself available 24/7 to teach, encourage, answer our questions and ensure we were ready to instruct. We arrived at the IE completely prepared in every aspect.We are... More

I started diving almost 20 years ago, then had a long break. When my husband got certified, I did a refresher course that was catered to me. The staff helped check out my gear, get items serviced, and really worked with me to replace items that needed "retired." They spent a lot of time making sure we were getting the... More

I recently completed my Instructor Development Course at Florida Underwater Sports and could not have been happier! Because I am not from the Sarasota area, I did much of my course scheduling through emails, which was actually very easy due to all the help and flexibility that Tim and Greg were able to offer. Not only were they able to... More

I did my Instructor course here and all of the staff was VERY friendly! They were all very knowledgeable and willing to share their experiences and help us grow as dive professionals. The whole course ran smoothly and was the most fun PADI course I have taken thus far. I cannot wait to be back down diving and learning with... More

We went on a dive charter through Florida Underwater Sports while visiting family over the holidays. They rented us good quality gear and we had a great dive. Brad, our dive master, gauged our group's comfort and ability very well and helped plan our trip accordingly. Everyone we met from the shop was great- very knowledgeable and personable. I hope...

These guys are hands down the best in Sarasota for Scuba. I have been wanting to get certified for years, but never could make the schedule work. Tim, Greg and Carl set up my classes and certification around MY SCHEDULE!! Seriously the best customer service I have every experienced. And they are fun!
