I researched nearly 20 dive shops before choosing Ranger Rick's for my wife and I's open water dive certification. Ranger Rick's had a great offer for the open water certification course, and they really took the time to go over all of the little details with me, which other dive shops forgot to mention. There were no hidden fees of any kind, and he was very up front about everything. The training was great! Very informative, and Rick and his team go above an beyond to make sure you know the "facts" when diving. I regularly call them now, just for information, questions, etc. and they always take the time to make sure my questions are answered. I also purchased equipment from Rick (as well as from other local shops)... I should have stuck with Rick to begin with...Truly awesome experience. In some cases, we were even able to "try before we bought" which was really great, as comfort is definitely an import an factor when choosing gear, and it's difficult to know what to chose when you are a beginner.

Anyway, all in all a great experience, and I will be continuing to go with Rick for my future scuba needs.

Just had a Fabulous experience with Ranger Rick and Todd! I am PADI certified, but it's been awhile since my last dive. I had lost my confidence and a refresher I took earlier this week at a different shop in another state was disasterous. The J.W. Marriott recommended Ranger Rick and they were right! What a fantastic course. Far exceeded my expectations. Both Rick and Todd were very clear in their instruction, supportive in my learning, and methodical in their training. They were focused on my success. I went from being anxious and wondering if I would ever dive again to being fully comfortable and confident in my ability after attending their refresher course. They explained and reviewed skills in a memorable and motivating way, checked in on my understanding, watched me practice and coached me on ways to improve. Great experience!

I have dived with Ranger Rick a few times now and have loved every dive. He and his staff help you all the way and nothing is a problem. I am a qualified diver and when on holidays in Florida I always dive with Rick there is no one better or as well organised and he goes out of his way to arrange everything for you.
The best thing in Florida is the weather you are less likely to have a dive cancelled as opposed to here in the uk the weather is a major factor. I have done specialty dives with Rick and my CPR training as in the uk there was never enough people interested so it was proving difficult to get a course that was running so if you want great dives with a professional team then choose Rick he is safety conscious and all equipment is in excellent condition and well maintained. The course fees are also less than in the uk and quicker to achieve time wise. Being based in the YMCA just off International Drive makes it very accessible even on the bus.
I felt very safe in the water and I have never met a more enthusiastic instructor who is full of praise for the students and encourages you to continue in your qualifications and it has been a great factor for me progressing to my Dive Master which I will complete in the next week and I am only 19 so thanks to Rick and I am really looking forward to my tech dives in the summer of 2012.

I got open water certified with Ranger Rick Scuba Adventure in April 2009....and still dive with him and his crew to this day. Ranger Rick and staff are very knowledgeable, patient and dedicated to their students. If you're interested in getting certified to dive, look no further. Ranger Rick offers very flexible class times.

If you're a certified diver traveling to the area, Ranger Rick offers trips around the state every weekend! Whether it's the ocean, grotto or springs. My boyfriend and I just went on a spearfishing and lobstering trip with him a few weeks ago. (Which he also offers classes for!)

You can't go wrong with Ranger Rick! :)
