My diving friends from Arizona found this place for based on their reviews and what they offer. I was pretty nervous walking in the store. They were welcoming and put me at ease right away. Very knowledgable and helpful. They answered all my questions and phone calls during my certification with kindness and patience. They even re-scheduled for me when my work was going to interfere with my class with no problem or complaint. Richie my diving instructor for my Open water dive class was totally "Zen". I was having a hard time in class "equalizing" and getting completely frustrated with myself to the point I was wondering if I was going to be able to complete the class. He was extremely patient and calm with with me. He took his time going over it and over with me until I finally was able to do it. It took me 3 days instead of two but that didn't matter. I was finally able to do it. I am extremely grateful my friends found this place for me!…

Incredible, flexible and welcoming staff. Best learning environment for new and advanced divers in FL.Highly recommend!
I can't emphasize enough how incredible this place is. I was visiting my parents in Florida prior to a spring break trip to Costa Rica and trying ever so hard to find a place that would be able to certify me before the Costa Rica trip. I called the Dive Place and Noel, the owner, did everything he could to help make that possible. Not only did he work around my schedule, even staying at the Dive Place late one night in order to finish my PADI review course with me prior to the in-person diving session the following day, but he also just has the friendliest and most welcoming personality. He clearly has a passion for what he does and he personally worked with me to find the most suited equipment for my budget, body type/swimming style, and diving level. Additionally, Richie, the diving instructor was an excellent teacher. He was patient and took pride in teaching his students how to dive safely and cautiously. I highly recommend this place and will be coming back in the future for advanced certifications.…

Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff, decent selection in the shop, and quality training courses which don't skimp on the safety points. I'm working on Advanced Certification with them now, and I've recommended two different friends who got OW certified there and loved it.
