I recently got scuba certified over the weekend and it was the best experience! The instructors were so helpful, friendly and fun to be around. I was a bit nervous at first with some things, but Jason took the time and worked with me until I was completely comfortable. I would definitely recommend going to Florida Underwater Sports!!

Serious divers… 3to4 dives a day, poker at night. They help with the trip planning, flight planning, tell you what to bring, help you with... More

I recently completed two classes with different members of this center. I had excellent experiences with the different instructors. They were enthusiastic about the profession and making sure we were taught the right way. If they felt someone didn't understand something or the skills weren't demonstrated properly they had the student re do the exercise. I also explained to them... More

It's much better late than never right??... Did my IDC at FUSE3 in December/January, the staff was extremely professional and kept the whole group motivated through the whole course. They were able to accommodate our tight schedule and group size perfectly and were very flexible with any changes that had to be done. All of us passed our IDC without... More

The people in this shop are lovely to do business with. My husband is a master diver who was long ago certified to be an instructor and to repair diving equipment, but never pursued it. He works in a technical field and is very serious about safety and the equipment that supports it. This is a guy who can tell... More

We used the PADI elearning before we got to Florida and then my teenage daughters did their pool and open water training here. Their instructor, Brad, showed them all of the skills they needed and more. Our class size was 3, so really good one-on-one time. On the final day, my husband and I joined the small group for a...

We chose Florida Underwater Sports since they were the group that did the scuba training for Mote Marine Labs. I figured if they were good enough for them, they were good enough to teach my son. My son earned his PADI/National Geographic Open Water Certification at 13, his Advanced Open Water Certification when he was 14 and his Master Diver... More

We are so sorry that you had this experience. Apparently there was a miscommunication and we are working to make sure it does not happen again. We run a 6 passenger boat and it sounds like multiple people were booked at the same time. Due to the inconvenience to you the next time you return to Sarasota we would like... More
