I would greatly recommend getting your open water or advanced open water here. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly, and can hook you up with diving on a moments notice

If you plan a stop over in Guam don´t try to dive with MDA like we did in March 2014. The service is so poor we haven´t meet before anywhere around in the diving world. No pick up service from the Hotel, you need a rental car. The service shop to pick up the tanks and the weights is faraway... More

MDA is a great dive shop with a very friendly and helpful staff. Their prices can't be beat. They offer free guided beach dives on weekends, which is how I started. (Does not include rental gear). We also did a boat dive with MDA to Tokai Maru and Cormaran (sp?) wrecks. MDA's boat is a larger boat and can carry... More

I was able to finally log some long rebreather dives with my PRISM2 eCCR thanks to MDA. While the shop is just beginning to get feet under their CCR diving support they provided me with all the things a CCR divers needs to log some hours... Oxygen, Sorb, bailout and a CCR dive buddy. When I was there the shop... More

I have used MDA for several trips and have been so happy! The last trip our flight was cancelled, so I emailed Matt and he rescheduled all our reservations without hassle to us and we were on our way! MDA also certified my family for SCUBA diving and the experience was pain free and very organized! I also love their... More

My wife and I knew about MDA from a previous visit to Guam when we stopped in at the shop to buy some snorkel gear (before we were scuba divers). Now that we're into diving, we thought we would see what Guam had to offer. I looked at other dive shops online, but MDA looked like the best option. We... More

MDA is far and away the best dive shop on Guam. Personable, knowledgeable staff and owners, great dive boats, top-shelf service. Incredibly reasonable pricing. All of our dive equipment came from MDA and we do all of our dives on Guam (we visit from Virginia about 3 times/yr.) with MDA. We have booked 5 off-island dive trips with the MDA... More

I've used the MDA travel desk for five dive trips and won't use any other travel organizer for my travels in the Pacific. Trips by myself, with friends, and with my wife ... all have been excellent experiences. Their knowledge of where divers want to go and what divers want to see and do puts them head and shoulders above... More

MDA is, by far, the best dive shop on Guam! The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The shop has a great variety of dive and snorkel gear for purchase. The rental equipment is very well maintained. Compared to the US mainland, the cost to get SCUBA certified is very inexpensive. The Instructors are great (ask for Austin Hedgepeth, he's... More
