Denver Divers and The Swim School of Denver: what do users think?

Kaylee Moore: We LOVE the Swim School of Denver! Our kids started swimming at the Swim School of Denver when they were 1.5 years old and 2 years old. Within months we felt so much less anxiety going to pools because the kids could "find their air." 3 years later, my 4 year old can swim laps by herself and loves every second of it. Additionally, the staff is incredibly friendly and very professional. I would recommend this school to anyone with littles looking to swim!

Drew Carpenter (Drew Carpenter Voice Over): left nothing to be desired and the staff is highly knowledgeable. They also have a great group trip calendar and organization. Thanks again, Denver Divers!

Taylor Benton: Excellent and friendly customer service every time we’re there. Loved the dive class too.

Adam “Zero” Galusha: I recently took the open water diving course at Denver Divers with my wife, and I can't say enough good things about our experience. Adam, our instructor, was absolutely fantastic. He's not only knowledgeable but also patient and highly skilled at teaching. His passion for diving was contagious, making the whole learning process enjoyable. Denver Divers provided a safe and welcoming environment for us to explore the underwater world. We felt well-prepared and confident after the course. We can't wait to dive again, and it's all thanks to Adam and the rest of the amazing crew at Denver Divers. Five stars without a doubt!

Emily Galusha: We couldn’t have chosen a better place to get scuba certified! Our instructor Adam was engaging, funny, and overall just an incredible teacher. I highly recommend using Denver Divers if you’re on the fence about it! They will take amazing care of you.

Denny Brenny: Nice place with really nice staff.

Todd Norton: Fantastic service and people! I took the open water course and loved every minute of it, very thorough and felt safe the entire time. Definitely would recommend this business and these people.

Erin Luke: . They took my daughter from not letting go of me with all fours anywhere near water to head under and enjoying herself within the first 15 min lessons. Six weeks later both of my kids are cool and confident in the water. Taking risks they are comfortable with on their own and at lessons and are in the most capable hands. Hands down recommend even if it means no lessons for a while at all while you wait bc this is where they will learn to be strong, safe and smart swimmers.

Audrey Taylor: Well organized shop.. had a great time learning the basics of diving! Very knowledgeable instructors and welcoming staff members

Megan Boos: We’ve had a great experience with Denver Divers - Open Water certification. The online SSI instruction was easy to access, the course was very helpful & informative & the instructors were knowledgeable, fun & patient.They offer free pool practice sessions between class & certification with instructors in the water which have been really helpful with our confidence.I would definitely recommend Denver Divers.

janice WIllardson: Good variety of masks snorkels and booties

M D: I've been diving for over a decade and have dealt with lots of dive shops. DD is the first one staffed with people who actually seem like they WANT to help you. That's why they're the only ones I go to now, even though I pass OneWorld on my way and have to go farther to DD. OneWorld told me they couldn't help me replace my Scubapro fins under warranty because I didn't have a receipt. They're years old! Of course I don't have a receipt anymore. Ali at DD has been great - contacting the rep and getting approval for warranty replacement, and without any reluctance or delays. OneWorld also refused service on my expensive 1st stage because, in the words of the owner, it wasn't sound. DD inspected, serviced and tested the 1st stage and it's fully functional. Trust me, take your gear to the nice, friendly, competent professionals at DD.

C Storey: I go here every two years for cpr and O2 certifications and they are the best. I highly recommend this place because they do it all as far as scuba certification needs. The people there are top notch especially Wendelinus Benjamin who is an amazing instructor. Thanks again for taking care of our company in our certifications.

Ben Adler: My family and I did a snorkling course with Cody before a trip to Hawaii. The experience was fantastic. Cody made everyone feel comfortable and taught us enough to be successful on our trip. Before we left, my son was scared of being in the open ocean. The confidence he gained from the course allowed him to overcome his hesitancy and really have a great time. We were able to rent the gear that we had learned in also so we were set up for success by the team at Denver Divers.

Sarah: Love this place, Ray and James are good vibes, awesome instructors.

A-1 Scuba & Travel Aquatic Center: what do users think?

Aaron Haack: Absolutely loved this experience, Todd, Serene, and Nicole were a wealth of knowledge and made the process very fun and enjoyable. When we got done, they were more than happy to share gear recommendations and pro tips for new divers. Very clean facility, knowledgable staff, and very very fun.

Jim Schoendaller: I needed a prescription mask for diving and snorkeling. I was expecting a 3-4 week wait for the lens to be sent out and returned. A-1 Scuba has a line of masks that are drop in lens compatible. Austin Murphy helped me. He looked at my recent prescription. He had one lens that was exact and one that was really close. I picked the color mask I wanted. Austin went in the back and changed the lenses. The whole process took less than 10 minutes. My vision with the mask is the same as with my glasses. The price was very reasonable. I even got a discount for having taken a refresher class with them. I am really looking forward to my next dive trip. Austin and A-1 Scuba rate 5 stars all the way. I will not hesitate to go back to them.

Johnny Shen: and i never went to get my open water cert as a result. When the opportunity came along this time, i decided to enroll at A1 with my partner

Thomas Vandekieft: Great place for all your scuba needs, service on gear is great and priced well and the staff is amazing with a good variety of new gear on hand.

Alex Corredor: Had my avalanche canister filled here. Quick and easy and the staff was friendly

Monique White: Austin was very knowledgeable and helpful when buying our first BCD and regulator. He even said it comes with a pool visit, so we make sure it's the right fit. We never felt rushed or dumb by asking novice questions. We felt like we were buying from a friend's dive shop. Highly recommended.

mike hyland: Willing to change this as I’ve had great experiences but wow the phone call today was not pleasant. I was trying to help them out by clarifying some misdirected and incorrect emails and I was dealt with extremely curtly as if it was my fault. Not cool….update: Got a call from the owner after lots of effort tracking me down. Was very sincere and helpful. All good now.

Jackson Gin: Serene, Todd, Ryan, and Kevin were my instructors over the course of the program. All of which were extremely helpful and encouraging throughout the weekend. I cannot wait to come back to do my open waters with A1!

Jamie Fox: Thanks Austin for all you have done for us! You are awesome!

Kayla Smith: Absolutely 5-star experience getting scuba certified with Justin and Jason at A1 this past weekend. They were so knowledgeable, helpful, and professional throughout the 3-day course that we feel so prepared to do our open water dives to get fully open water certified in a couple of weeks abroad. Highly recommend using A1 for any of your certifications, courses, and even scuba trips which we just learned about. Thank you Justin and Jason for making our weekend so great! You guys rock!

Kiyono A: I finished my pool and classroom training for my open water certification with A-1, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Such a fun and enthusiastic group of folks - both on the educational and retail side. Myka and Nicole made me excited to come to class each night, and I felt so confident going into my open dives after learning with these two. Highly recommend and I can't wait to take more classes with this center!

Timothy Balsley: This place is awesome. If you are into scuba, you want 1 of everything it is like a candy store

Dean VandeKieft: A1 went above and beyond for my BCD service. I have an aqualung axiom i3. After having previous issues with others on the rear dump valve, mine was the tipping point. They decided to reach out to aqualung for answers. After getting the ok they sent it off for service. All in was about 3 weeks but service didn't stop there. They held it for another week, testing and rechecking everything to make sure it was 100% ready. To help understand what was happening and how to fix or prevent this going forward theybactually cut apart one of their own BCDs to diagnose the issue from the inside. Keep in mind A1 is in Colorado, I live in central Minnesota. They've relayed through my brother to get information and for pick up and drop off as well as to go over what they find and why. Anyplace else may have just sent me out the door or charged a ton for all the additional service, they didn't. They used my issue to help learn and give a confident and knowledgeable summary of service to me. It may be over 650 miles away, but if I can get my gear there, I'll keep coming back.

Richard Cardenas: The staff at A 1 was very helpful. They went above and beyond. I have made the trip from Colorado Springs several times. I continue to drive up there for services or equipment that I need.

Jay Pickard: and did so with grace and fun. My child was the kid struggling, and he made it fun for even her. You don’t see this kind of person often. Thanks.

Rick Lin: Very friendly and professional staffs.

Paul Cherrett: Brett assisted me in the purchase of mask, fins, and snorkel set and various other needs for a trip I am about to go on. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and never tried to over sell me. He also informed me of all the various dive classes and guided trips they offer. Very nice experience.

Sarah Windholz: A-1 Scuba is a top notch shop!! I have taken one other course years ago from A-1 but most recently I completed the DAN BASIC LIF SUPPORT: CPR, FIRST AID, and OXYGEN PROVIDER COURSE. The instructors Leila & Myka were wonderful! I was lucky enough to be partnered with an A-1 assistant instructor Eric who was taking the course for recert who was extremly knowledable and kept us all laughing throughout the interactive exercises. I had not realized the amount of time the reading would take and the instructor, Leila continued to follow up with all of us to ensure we were ready and prepared for the course later that week which in my opinion was above an beyond as an instructor - so sincerely appreciated as two of us would not have been ready!I also took the DIVER STRESS AND RESCUE COURSE in which the instructor Mackenzie was fun yet very focused and dedicated to ensuring each of us in the course became competent and knowledeable before moving on - no hesitation to provide additional instruction and request the individual redemonstrate with corrections to ensure competency was demonstrated. It was a long day but added so much skill that I will be recommending this course moving forward - no fluff in this course!If you are at all hesitating taking a course through this shop - don't - register and enjoy a very fun experience where you feel competent and knowledable upon completion!Thank you A-1 Scuba for being in a land locked state where you add so much to the diving community!!

Coral Key Scuba & Travel: what do users think?

Eric Laorr: Took a few specialty courses with Eric at the Blue Hole who did a great job. Love the shop vibe - Ariece and Wendy are super nice and helpful despite my constant badgering of questions, and Freddy the owner is awesome and seems to really know his stuff. Have learned a lot from him and his YouTube channel in just a few months.

Zach Bork: This was definitely the best choice deciding to get certified here. The instructors and divemaster's were amazing! I always wanted to scuba dive and I am glad I chose to do it here. If possible, I would recommend extending the time of the open water class/pool sessions, as we were running against the clock on most of the nights.

Dylan: What an experience! Top of the line customer service. Wish I could go everyday, the atmosphere is very welcoming and friendly. Blown away.

angelo perez: Wendy you're the Best😁This Salt Water boy will definitely be back . Love your warm smile. Fins up🐬🐬🏝️🏝️

Beau Reichert: Always a pleasure hanging with yall. We're excited for our nitrox course and super excited we got to meet the puppo.

Nathan Settlemire: I just got refferal diver here and it was really fun and the people where nice the price was ehh but other than that they made it fun

Ray Valente: Very helpful!

Travis Reilly: Very helpful and super friendly in selecting the right fins for SCUBA dive!

Arthur L Teter 3: Love this place. Arguably the best dive shop in Denver. They have the best selection in town. Lots of great trips at very reasonable prices.They recently switched from PADI to SSI, but I find the two programs extremely comparable, and certifications interchangeable. SSI definitely has a much better dive app, and many aspects of the program make more sense. Think the switch was a good one.

Rachel Moyle: Freddy is SO helpful and knowledgeable. I learned so much from him while I was there and he really takes the time to get you the right gear with zero pressure. They had everything we needed in stock and everything was quality.

Bob Hart: Good people to work with

Maggie Fast: I was hesitant leaving a review until AFTER our first real life ocean dive. I"m glad I waited because I can confidently give them a solid 5 star review! We did our first post certification dive today in Antigua and it was amazing. We felt so comfortable the entire time. We dived Jettia's Wreck and had an absolute blast. The dive was not with Coral Key Scuba, it was with a Sandals' Resort, but the training that we got from Coral Key scuba left us feeling confident. We understood all the equipment, understood all the hand signals, and at no point felt that we could have gotten better training anywhere else. Thank you SO much Coral Key for allowing us to have the most amazing first ocean dive possible! We enjoyed every second of it! I highly recommend getting your certification here. You will not feel like a first time diver once you arrive at your destination!

Elizabeth White: I did the SSI Full Face Mask specialty certification last night with Scott P. and it was very informative. Scott took his time explaining the differences in design and function when using a full face mask versus a traditional mask and regulator, and we spent 90 minutes going through the skills in the pool. He taught me tricks and tips and at the end of the session, I felt confident that I could troubleshoot any issues I encounter on my own.

Jacob Martinez: and they had exactly what I needed. Very happy with the product and people.

Nathanael Książkiewicz: Freddy, Ariece & the team at Coral Key have been immensely helpful getting me setup with great gear to explore the ocean 🙌🏽 their knowledge of what works and what doesn’t saved me time and money 🏁

Colorado Scuba Center: what do users think?

Kris Mears: Great dive travel program.

Alexis Tanguay: My partner and I took their contained diving course with another new diver and had a great time. This shop was recommended by friends who took the same course. Most importantly, our instructor Bruce ensured we understood and are prepared for open water diving scenarios. We also appreciated his and David’s honest and helpful answers to all our questions about other skills in diving and requests for dive recommendations.The shop also has underwater communication tablets if you’re having a hard time finding them like I did. Thanks Colorado Scuba Center team for a fun and efficient weekend in the pool!

Craig Ramon: Great scuba shop. Dave the owner is great at getting you the right scuba gear. That is important. I like the dive trips they have.

Michael Wismann: Que the collection of scuba great. The owner is very informative.

Douglas Jones: Dave and Jeff are always welcoming. Friendly, knowledgeable and personable.

Colton Titus: I needed a dive mask with corrective lenses before my trip coming up last minute and the store had plenty of options available. The owner helped me figure out which lenses would best work for my prescription due to my astigmatism and at an affordable price. Though there is some negative reviews due to the owner's personality, he is very blunt and honest which I respect. If you're looking for gear and honest advice this is the shop to go to. Say hello to the friendly shop dog!

Edward Cervanyk: Dave the owner is hands on in all services. Trained me in 1995 been on over 250 drives over the years he has got me to the level of master scubadiver. Taught me underwear video & photography.

Josh Aragon: Best scuba I have ever had. Been a faithful diver since 2011. Dave an team treat you like family. They always make sure your safe and know what your doing. I won't go anywhere else.

Tyler Gronski: Absolutely FABULOUS dive shop and guides. Dave is the friendliest and most knowledgeable guides I've had. He alone made the trip 5/5! Everyone at the shop was so courteous and kind. Everything ran smoothly and on time. I recommend Colorado Scuba Center to everyone and will definitely be coming back next time i'm looking to book a trip.

R Jnz: I didnt buy anything on this trip. But i asked about certification. He explained the whole process in an easy to understand way. Gave me a figure on what it would cost and then a rough estimate on a decent set up so I could budget accordingly

Karl Schwenzfeger: The best place I know!!!

John Bonnette: Dave was awesome! He helped me get the parts I needed to service my regs on a short timeline, and gave me a bunch of helpful tips for my dive trip. Great service and very knowledgeable!
