I recently visited Guam and wanted to complete my dive certification. I can honestly say I had an amazing experience in the certifying process itself! My instruction was Farron. He made the process easy and extremely fun! I would recommend Farron to anyone that is wanting to get a certification done or take dive tours around the island. Farron was... More

MDA has the best most friendly staff in the Island. I have learned after five months residing in Guam that MDA takes care of me and my dive crew. The staff is always attentive and friendly, helpful to say the least, I never had any issues with them so far. I have been in over 25 dives with them, and... More

I was in Guam from August to January on a rotation TDY. Not only did I become a certified Divemaster, but I also had the experience of a lifetime! I had never attempted scuba diving before, but I had heard before that the diving in Guam is some of the best in the world. I heard about MDA through the... More

Best dive company on Guam. Very easy to work with and have lots of options for all levels of divers. They run lots of Boat Dives and regular free shore dives on weekends. The shop has probably the best selection of dive equipment on island.

The dive shop people at all 3 locations are very, very knowledge and friendly. The bots and shore guided dives are fabulous! The service and rental department people are equally great! I have nothing but awesome things to say about this place!
