Friendly folks, nice dive shop. We rented gear from them - one of the depth gages was way off, but we told them about it and I'd guess they'll fix it. Other than that, things were smooth. The staff was very helpful. There's a fantastic shore dive right across the street - Piti Bomb Holes.

I've got my PADI open water certification with MDA. Our instructor was Farron, and he's awesome, he completely justified our hopes. He took his responsibility very seriously to ensure we know the necessary skills and our safety, the same time joking around. He was patient & encouraging when I faced challenges with my sea-cucumbers fear;)) As our guide, he did... More

I used MDA to complete my Open Water certification. They hooked me up with Farron and he was very good at communicating to me before my trip and arranging the dives. When I arrived, he took care of things, knew his stuff, and answered all my questions. Our dives were great. Farron was very patient, extremely knowledgeable, and clearly wanted... More

During my recent visit to Guam our dive needs were met professionally and pleasantly by the folks at MDA. I lived on Guam for 17 years in the 60s to 80s and learned to dive there.

When deciding to dive in Guam checked out all the local dive shops and sent e-mails, MDA was the only one which answered quickly and gave all the info. Dive shop is easy to find, but would be useful to rent a car as you will need to move all your diving gear yourself, including tanks, which was surprise for... More

I was only on Guam for a few weeks and REALLY wanted to dive the Tokai and Cormoran so I had to get my advanced cert. I was there for work so I knew I was going to have to do a private instruction rather than with a class. This about tripled the price but I wouldn't have been able... More
