Professional place, and one of the only decent places in Guam

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

I'm tired of all these navy posting on my behalf of something they have no idea and are just ruining people's way of living. I am part of the group all these people are saying we got scammed and ripped off. We tried many times but with our hectic schedule and bad weather it was out of mda and our... 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.

Michelle helped us with some camera lights and everyone has been very helpful. We buy stuff there all the time, shirts, books and lights. We dive the... More

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!

We have booked several dive trips through MDA including Rota, Chuuk, and Palau twice. Every time Matt has been great. Fast response, great attention to detail, and has a great knowledge of the area. Every trip has gone flawlessly from the hotel transfers, to the diving, and even the lunch orders on the dives. And the prices are better than... More

If it is your first time diving in Guam, its totally different than typical diving. These guys just rent gear, and sell seats on another boat. You must have a car and drive your gear to the boat and load it yourself, and the frustrating thing is that NO ONE explains the process. They just sell you the stuff and... More
