Got my O/W cert with these guys back in 2011 and just returned for a refresher before going to Hawaii for some diving. I recognized most of the staff right away (Stephen and Fernando) and my refresher dive was with a new instructor. If you are at all interested in scuba diving, talk to Stephen, he'll hook you up!
Staff - very friendly and knowledgeable
Pricing - reasonable and comparable
Very good full service dive shop I'm glad to call "home base"
Our family is planning a trip to Hawaii, so I encouraged my son to take some dive lessons. He found the Scuba Shop - and did his Open Water training with Fernando. I hadn't been diving in 6 years, so I called Fernando and asked about switching from SSI to PADI. He was very helpful and explained my options. We decided that I would get my Advanced Open Water cert - and he was flexible enough with his scheduling that I was able to train with my son after he passed his Open Water class. Jeff also filled in for Fernando on our last AOW dives and was awesome as well. We have gotten to know Steve too. I just can't say enough about the quality of the instruction and the care these guys take for all of their customers. Also, their training and rental equipment is far superior to what I've seen used at other dive shops.
I would highly recommend anyone interested in scuba to go by and visit with these guys and become part of The Scuba Shop family! You can't find any better training anywhere!
All the guys in the shop are great and will bend over backwards to help and get you certified on your schedule. I live 100 miles away and they worked with me on my schedule. They took me from open water to divemaster.Casey W, Show Low
I can not say enough about the Scuba Shop and particular Fernando. 3 years ago I needed to get two of my children ages 10 & 12 scuba certified and didn't have a lot of time to do it in. Fernando was so accommodating and patient. Even when we went to do the open water dive and my 10 year old daughter freaked out--he was calm and patient with her. Fast forward 3 years and my now 15 year old son is getting ready to dive in the Galapagos. I sent Fernando a quick text and he immediately set up a time for him to come in for a refresher course. Fernando has turned my kids into scuba fantatics - now they are begging for their own gear. Thank you Scuba Shop and particularly Fernando for taking such great care of my now giant kids!Cori J, Phoenix
