Did the open diver course with Michael Schuck, amazing instructor and very detailed. I have learned a lot and he made me feel comfortable with being in the water. I tightly recommend MDA, it's professional and a great place to get dive gear.

We have been loyal clients of MDA since we were certified in 2008. While we don't live in Guam, we visit once or twice a year and get in at least a half dozen dives per trip. MDA is a required stop the first day on-island to sign up for dive boats. And we have booked all of our dive... More

I went there last month and did the padi open water course with Josh Wood. We went there from recommendations from coworkers to get our open water cert, they took very good care of us and made certain we knew the content and were able to apply it appropriately. This my first overall experience with a dive shop but had... More

I dove Guam (eastern side Philippine Sea) for 4 days and did 11 dives. I dove with MDA and on island they have a good operation, two large dive boats (25 divers give or take), and a fully stocked shop and well run rental outfit. Though they were hopeless setting anything up via email before I arrived on island. I... More

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.

Thanks so much for diving with us and for leaving a review! We especially appreciate bringing the faulty gauge to our attention so that it could be replaced right away. Glad you enjoyed Piti Bomb Holes! We love being right across the street from such a great, easy-access shore dive :) More

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.
