Pros:
* Dive Shop is 20 ft. from Dive Boat.
* Monty's, a Tiki themed waterfront restaurant is next door for after the dive.
* Best Prices for gear & rentals, and I bought all my equipment here so far.
* Their rental equipment is not from the 80's like most places.
* They fill my tanks as I wait in 5 mins flat
* They have fixed my reg before for $19 when I was expecting it to be over $100
* They know their stuff, they are not expensive and they are quick and easy. What other business in Miami can you say that about? none

Cons:
I cant think of one single thing to say bad.

I didn't get certified here but at another shop on miami beach but I wish i had. When I found out about them I was amazed. The level of knowledge and expertise is mind blowing. They also really want to help you. They love diving themselves and its family run so they really don't care if you come to browse or just ask questions if your even thinking of taking up the sport. I send all my friends here now. great people, The tall pretty blonde, Val and Jake both are so nice they make me feel like family.
Besides them knowing everything and being nice their dive shop is the only one right on the water. You rent your equipment and walk 15 feet to the dive boat. No lugging stuff all over the place. I purchased 4 sets of equipment from them so far and they have always been the lowest price, so now I don't even price shop anymore. I wish I did my Padi through them but I will do my advanced through them soon and my Nitrox. Also, Monty's is the next door over so I can always get a bite to eat after a dive. I'd give more than 5 stars if I could! Great respectable shop, a rare find in Miami.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON THIS COMPANY!!! The staff is incredibly rude and unprofessional. They didn't even show up to an appointment I set with them and I wasted a trip out there. There are too many scuba certification companies in South Florida to waste your time on this kind of terrible service. Save yourself the hassle and stress and go somewhere else. You will regret ever taking classes or doing any kind of business with Tarpoon Lagoon.

I got certified as a scuba diver here, and did not feel I was getting adequate professional attention. The instructor was distracted, and the when we went out on the boat we had to wait 1 1/2 hours from when we were told to show up (7 am) until we actually took off, because they crammed the boat with so many other late-comers (around 50 divers altogether). Given the price I paid for the course, I did not feel this was appropriate. Finally, at the end of the course, the instructor did not even have time to tell me the info on our diving location for my diving book, because he was in such a hurry to go with another group. I would not recommend this facility for getting certified.

Having dived in locations around the world, I found the staff at the Tarpoon Dive Center to be amongst the most knowledgeable and friendly that I have met. It doesn't hurt that they have over 50 years combined experience in the industry and dive for pleasure in their spare time.

The dives in Miami Beach vary from reefs that compare to (or they would say exceed!) the beauty of those in the Florida Keys, to the wrecks of freighters sunk long ago by the US Coast Guard. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and diversity of what was available. Tarpoon charters to a 49-ft Newton dive boat that is very comfortable in all but the worst weather, or on the busiest of days!

I have dived with Tarpoon on many occasions and will continue to do so on my regular visits to Miami Beach.
