  • Great service and extremely helpful staff. Highly recommended.
  • For all your diving needs and the BEST customer service team ever!
  • My husband and I went in for a refresher dive course (3 hrs) 16 years since we last dived. Katherine and Lauren were wonderful instructors and even when I felt quite panicked at one stage, they worked with me until I felt comfortable, and then completed the course. My kids did their Open Water certification on the same day, with some coercion from me. After completing the course my smiling girls (12 and 14) said the words every parent wants to hear: "I'm so glad you forced me to do that!" Thank you Marin Diving Center!
  • This is for our experience in 2014: Jon (owner) and Silas are both very helpful, regarding equipment and all of the certification details. There is a lot to know about equipment alone, they don't mind going over details more than once. We visited to get our Open Water Diver Certification: - On the confined Water (pool) training day, our instructor was Jim. After all of that book studying and DVD watching, we had to go over the important info again in the classroom. We go over a lot of information, it's a pretty long day, but well worth it to be ready for the actual dives. - Open Dive days in Monterey: We met our instructor Bob, and the Advance Open Diver instructor Catherine. The both were amazing, going above and beyond our expectations. One of our snorkel broke on the first day, right before we stepped into the water! We thought that we wouldn't be able to participate for the day. But Catherine was still around and when she saw, with no hesitation, she handed us her snorkel and told us to buy a new one for the next day. It was so nice of her, she didn't think twice about it. Bob's instructions before each dive were very thorough. At no point did we feel worried for our safety. He was great. Along with another couple, we all met up for dinner. It was great listening to their diving experiences, and how much there is to learn in this field. We are very happy we experienced diving in the cold, low-visibility water off the shore in Northern California. It will make us appreciate our warm water dives even more! They offer fun dives every month, which sounds very appealing to get some dives in and see more of the California coast. They also do boat diving in the Channel Islands. We're looking forward to doing some of those with them. Thank you all for the great learning experience, and exposure to the world of Scuba Diving! 2015 edit: We've been to a few of their fun dives and they do everything to make us feel safe and comfortable. Great team!
  • Fantastic dive shop with exceptional employees! Wouldn't go anywhere else. Top gear, great trips, and passionate staff.
