Below are some reviews from our previous customers
Nancy, Adlai and Greg… ya’ll rock! I’m 49 and my son is 16 and we just finished our Open Water Certifications at ScubaTech. We began our cert’s (Scuba 1,2,3) in the Turks & Caicos and later decided to complete the Open Water (4&5). We live in Alabama and drove to Destin to finish all the requirements. Adlai Cohen is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and so good at schooling, re-schooling and re-schooling again to make sure that when you leave you feel comfortable and educated so you can go out and dive with confidence! As a mother whose husband doesn’t dive, I can’t tell you how important and valuable it was to me to have put my son’s dive experience and potentially his life in such qualified and soooo funny hands! We learned all we needed to and we had a BALL with Adlai throughout the whole experience! Thank you Adlai, you are such a blessing and we will never forget our week with you! Nancy – you are the bomb.com! Thank you for for your professionalism and abilities to get us right on the dive site! The Miss Louise took top billing of all of our dives we had already done for my son – literally hundreds of thousands of fish, it was amazing! And Greg, thank you for your patience with an old mom and her teenage boy when you got our half of the class in the bay – I felt safe and secure with you in control, you are a fabulous dive instructor! Overall, I highly recommend SCUBATECH, their uber qualified staff will make you feel more than comfortable and make sure you know everything you need to know upon completion of your courses – THANK YA’LL!

My husband and I booked another dive trip with ScubaTech during our recent trip to Destin and again had a wonderful time. Thank you again Nancy, Tim, and Greg for being so caring and knowledgeable. The crew made sure we were safe and had a good time. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff. During both of our dives we had pretty rough currents, but the staff went out of their way to make sure we were safe and enjoyed ourselves. We requested Tim again for our Dive Master and as usual he was outstanding. We had a group of five divers and Tim made sure each and every one of us were safe and engaged in the dive and our surroundings. I highly recommend ScubaTech to anyone considering diving in Destin.
My father and I went on a couple dives with Scuba Tech and we had a great time! The captain was very informative about the area and answered our questions very thoroughly. The first mate was great about helping us get our gear set up. We had a dive-master named Tim take us down and he did a great job! He dressed in all bright colors so everyone could see him and he was great about interacting with each diver. Any time I am in the Destin area I will definitely be going to scuba tech for any gear, charter or information.
I dive with this outfit almost every week and am always 100 percent satisfied. The full-service store is well stocked with all the latest dive gear. The staff is knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. The dive masters are very professional. The captain puts you right on the dive sites so you don’t waste air looking for the wreck/reef. If you want a great dive experience, stop by Scubatech. I won’t dive with anyone else.
Recently PADI certified by ScubaTech with instructor, Greg Christie. Professional service and patient teaching. Both Marianne and Greg helped me select all my equipment and I know I will return to do more dives and continuing education. Highly recommend.
Best dive shop and boat on the whole Gulf of Mexico!!!!
The staff at Scuba-tech were great! I really enjoyed my time diving in Destin. Next time you are in Florida, stop by and Scuba up. ~art
Fun and friendly crew, almost overly helpful. They put your experience and safety first.
Awesome group! Very friendly and professional!!!
Words cannot describe how amazing ScubaTech is. There is no other dive shop I would even consider diving with. The entire family at ScubaTech (Nancy, Mark, Carla, Greg, MaryAnn, Adlai, Sean, Steve, Savannah) are the most friendly and professional dive crew I have ever met. I just left ScubaTech this past week and had the most amazing dive experiences as usual. I speared flounder while on my trip. After the dive trip was over, the boat’s captain (Nancy) was busy cleaning the boat but stopped what she was doing just to filet the fish for me. This is the world class service that you just do not expect from a dive shop but will get if you have the pleasure of diving with ScubaTech. If you are lucky enough to be in Destin, FL and want to learn to dive or want to go on a one in a lifetime dive trip then look no further than ScubaTech.
Because it is a Dive shop, you might overlook this little gem, but it is a great snorkeling trip. The people were great, both in the shop and on the boat. Our trip was longer than any of the other boats that were out that day and we received much more personal attention. Richard took the time to find a sea urchin and bring it to us. On the trip back in, we were treated to delicious pineapple. It was a great experience.
We went on the snorkel trip and had a great time. This was our first snorkeling experience and they were very nice and helpful. My wife’s snorkel let a little water in. If this happens, just ask for a different one. There dry snorkels that auto seal upon diving are the only way to go. Make sure to explore the rocks near the jetty. This a great experience for the whole family.
This place is so much more than a dive shop. They’re a family sharing the passion for scuba and encouraging others to love it too.
This weekend I successfully completed my open water certification, and goodness it was only possible because of these amazing instructors. On the first day we went out to the Destin Getties for our skills refresher and it had been almost 9 months since I completed my pool certification. I was a bit lost, but my instructor (Terry) and the other Scubatech staff patiently worked to get me comfortable again. I had severe issues with the underwater mask removal but thanks to Terry he got me comfortable enough to take my mask off underwater, and even twirl it around my finger, before putting it back on and properly clearing it!
I had a blast getting my certification with Scubatech and can’t wait to go back to Destin to see them.
What an amazing group of people at Scubatech- No need to look anywhere else for ANY of your scuba needs!!!!
I was in Destin over Spring Break and wanted to complete my certification but was a little skeptical because my pool dives in Chicago had been somewhat sketchy (due to my own fears)… I am so lucky to have crossed paths with this group of folks!!!!
Everyone on the team went out of their way to make my experience with them ONE I WILL FOREVER REMEMBER. Their love and respect for the sport is evident in the way they took time with me to make sure i got through the certification process safely and at a pace that i was comfortable with (and believe me…they were PATIENT! haha).
I hope others introduction to the ‘underwater world’ is as FABULOUS as mine was- THANK YOU Scubatech!!!!
Very welcoming new a lot ab the equipment they sold. Great store great people. Definitely a stop for every diver or person that’s interested in starting to dive!
Best dive shop in the universe!!! Extremely knowledgeable, fun and friendly staff that make you feel as warm as melted butter the minute you enter thru their doors. The dive shop is well stocked with quality equipment and they have some of the coolest T-shirts. The Dive boat “Sea Cobra” is professionally operated with safety as number 1. I have never seen a better operation in my 25 years of diving. I would highly recommend Scubatech to new divers that need a little more confidence and to “older, seasoned” divers that just want to relax and enjoy the experience. Scubatech ROCKS!!!
Great service provided by friendly, competent people. If you have a need for any diving requirement, this is the place to visit. Top notch! See Steve for all your equipment questions.
