Bad experiences on all fronts with them. And by that I mean by phone call, email, and in person. We've given them so many different times to give us mediocre customer service and they failed every time. My husband and I are pretty laid back....More

They have two locations (one on Navy and one off) and both have a good selection of equipment. Just like another dive shop, they cannot sell all brands, so check out other places if they don't have what you need. The staff is friendly and...More

MDA is a phenomenal dive shop staffed and owned by people that genuinely care about spreading the joys of Scuba diving. From Open Water to Divemaster, I had a blast every step of the way. Jennetta and Eric made learning to dive fun, but also...More

From the beautiful exterior, to the knowledge of the staff, MDA has it all! Good selection of snorkel and dive gear, with a VERY knowledgeable staff to assist. It can get busy at times, which is only a reflection of their credibility and choice when...More

I had a great experience diving with Parker for two days. MDA does not allow single divers to join groups, rather you need to hire a guide so it's a private tour. At first I wondered if this was a way to gouge tourists but...More
