As my first time diving on Guam I was somewhat at a loss as to which dive shop would be best. I was very happy with Blue Persuasion. They have a great shop located in the Hilton Hotel. Their equipment is the top of the line new well maintained Tusa gear. Above all they strive to give the customer a memorable, SAFE diving experience. Cathy also took extra time to give us ideas as to other Guam activities such as where the locals would go out to eat and which hiking areas are the best.
There are many dive shops in Guam, some may appear cheaper but you may end up with a disappointing time.
My only further suggestion is that they are not the snorkel shop below the pool area. (they may do some beach dives only)The front desk did not know where the shop was located even though it is about 100 feet from them, in the area where other activities can be booked. (Zip line, bus tours etc.) Make sure you call or check out their web site about 1 - 2 weeks before your trip.

Good points:
- TUSA Gears are extremely well-maintained and comfortable. Prices are fairly reasonable.
- Paid USD 300 for dive and boat ride for 2 pax. It was an exclusive dive experience.
- Services provided by Cathy and Ben are professional, warm and friendly.
- My dive was led by Ben and he's a fun and patient instructor. He's able to transfer his passion in diving to his students in an assuring manner.
- Pick-up at hotel lobby was on time.
- A lunch bento is provided after dive which was extremely thoughtful.
- 2 way transport are provided before and after dive.
- Ben is able to converse in fluent English and Cathy is fluent in both Mandarin and English.

Bad points:
- Boat ride might be choppy due to weather. Suggests to bring motion sickness patch or band to make your dive experience complete.
- Shop is located in Hilton hotel, basement level. Turn right when facing the front desk.
- Aircon is car might be cold, bring along towels.
- There are no lockers, suggests to travel light and leave your stuffs in the vehicle/boat.

Students who are not confident in diving, i highly recommend to patronize this shop because of their high professionalism in diving. I will be back to Guam cos of them.

I give a rating of 9/10.

I have been to Guam many times and Blue Persuasion is BY FAR the best dive shop on Guam. The equipment for sale is top of the line and even the rental equipment is in tip top shape. The instructors/owners (Ben and Cathy) are very professional and excellent divers. They make diving on Guam very enjoyable and stress free. I am so glad I learned to dive at Blue Persuasion!!

I went in late August to Guam and I was lucky enough to come across Blue Persuasion Dive Shop and I am so lucky and great full that I found them. I dove with both Ben and Cathy who were so knowledgeable and so helpful in my diving experience. I felt like I had my very own personal dive master with me at all times. Not only did they show me where all the cool thing were under water they also gave me great recommendations on food and other activities on the island. Still to this day I can reach Ben or Cathy and they are always helpful when I need info. Great dive shop and great people!
