I have been coming here for the last decade, starting with my open water cert. The store's sales team are very knowledgeable and are willing to share that knowledge. Obviously, if we continue diving then it is a win-win for all! I have just recommended them to my son and daughter. They are now a multi-generation dive shop. Join their... More

quite a few members of our family have gotten scuba certified here. They are safe and attentive and help you feel confident. I would recommend them for certification. I was very nervous to get certified (over 50 and I don't love swimming) and i did it.

Great staff that will go out of thier way to help and find you the best products to fit your needs. It's like having an extended family. Sometimes may have to wait to help but that's because they spend a lot of time making sure the customer gets what they want and/or need. They have a 12 foot dive pool... More

During our cruise we had lost our watertight money holder that hangs around ones neck. When we were on the ship and the different islands, we could not find a replacement. The new style is larger, but leaks and we had to return it while on the vacation. Sure enough, Aquatic Dreams Scuba Center had just what we needed and... More
