DO NOT REGISTER UNTIL YOU KNOW THESE GUYS AREN'T DOING a 50% OFF GROUPON! I recently signed my daughter up for her 5th month of swim lessons and paid for the next 3 months . . . then the 1 month groupon comes out. . ..I only asked if they could allow me to use the value of the groupon to future services beyond what I've paid for. . . They were completely uninterested in keeping my business.

I have been diving with Seaventures since 1987. I have been on many trips and bought more gear than I care to mention. I have always been treated with the upmost respect by their staff and had a fantastic time on everyone of the trips I have been on. My wife was a little timid at first but the safety and patience that this crew showed put her as such ease now its her that is always packed and ready to go diving. \r
I read these post before doing business with anyone these days and was super surprised to see a negitive post about SeaVentures. I guess you cant please everyone and if all the post were positive I would think they were owner sponsered. \r
Frankly, I am glad that SeaVentures has the rules in place as they do. I remember early on when we went on a trip and someone had bought there gear else ware and ofcourse that person thought it was great gear only to break down on the trip. Our Divemaster spent the weekend trying to fix this guys gear instead of diving and we mist out on our underwater photography class because of it. It brought the whole group down because naturally these people could not dive and were complaining the whole time and the Divemaster was not able to entertain and care to us as he was a repairman to someones JUNKIE equipment. In my business of personal training my gym will not let me buy supplements at the Vitamin Shop and use them in the gym were the owner sells his brand. It makes sinces that it will confuse the PT Clients and not be good for his sales. Sometimes you have to think about everyone involved not just yourself and what you want. I am glad SeaVentures did not let you get certified there you do not respect the system and you would have been the person that ruined my trip by having broken equipment. \r
This group is not the cheapest by any means. Probably one of the most expensive dive shops around but hey its only your life underwater. My wife feels very Safe and secure because of the system they have in place. We love them and cant think of ever diving with anyone else. \r
Thanks SeaVentures, \r

If you like a dive shop that cares more about actually teaching you how to dive instead of turning a profit, then you'd best look elsewhere. I came into SeaVentures a while ago based on a recommendation from a friend who has helped out there on occasion. While the shop is all right, most of the staff quite nice, and the pool a nice touch, their company policies have turned what could have been a top-notch dive shop into a money-grubbing cesspit.

I had gone in to see about getting a high level certification, but once I started talking with the staff member I had been assigned to, I immediately got the sense that something was off when my simple, personal reasons for wanting this level of certification were brushed aside. I felt that this action was odd, but I let it slide, hoping that the course would be great. What was absolutely absurd though was what I was met with when I was asked what dive gear I had. I figured that this was a pretty standard question so that the instructors would know what I would be working with as they worked with me. I have a great set of gear that has never done me wrong in the few years that I have had it, and I take excellent care of it so that it will take care of me on any dive. However, I was quickly informed that if I was going to take this certification class through their shop, I would need to buy all new gear, even though my gear was all in great condition.

Now, if my gear is good enough for even the staff member to call it such, why would he tell me to buy all new gear, from a regulator to a pair of fins and everything in between? This is where a poor attempt at policy comes into play. Apparently, for this shop to certify you, you are REQUIRED to wear gear that they currently stock in their shop, from the general brand name right down to the model. This policy turns anyone from a student into a walking advertisement, and that is not fair for the student or their wallet. Basically, if I had gone on ahead with the certification here, regardless of the costs of the course and materials, I would have had to spend over $2000 just to have another set of dive gear in addition to my one set that works perfectly.

Going in, I was more than willing to pay the cost of the course and materials, but even that high price tag was not enough for this shop. It was akin to going to purchase a new television and being told that you need to buy an entire new living room and set of furniture just to have it. In other words, complete bunk.

I will say that some of the staff was quite nice, the array of course materials was good, and that some of the dive gear items they had were decent deals. However, a few other staff members taint the image of what could have been a great shop, and the company policies bring it down to irredeemable levels.

In the end, the shop is only out for money, not just enjoying diving and teaching people how to dive as one would like to think. I cannot in good conscience recommend this shop, although I do wish everyone else luck in finding a better one.

We have had our gear serviced here twice now and have been very happy.They also sell a varied amount of different brand gear. They have specialty and basic classes. They also schedule dive trips in the shop. They have a heated indoor pool on site.

PROS: onsite pool, knowledgable staff, dive travel planners
CONS:
