Wanted some advice on streamlining my dive gear. Jess and Katie were both very friendly and eager to offer some options I didn't even think of without being pushy salespeople. I'll definitely be back and I highly recommend to both novice and experienced divers alike.

Staff members today were Billy, captain of the boat, Zack, Kathleen and Wendy. All very helpful and couldn't have been nicer. Boat was great too, perfect for snorkeling, diving and Snuba. Took us to two different spots, both fantastic! Highly recommend Tildens!
