A few of our rave reviews...

“Ed is one of the most well-rounded and well-equipped scuba professionals I know, and a true pleasure to work with.  What do I mean by well-rounded?  First, the person must have a strong commitment to safety, and Ed’s is uncompromising.  Second, Ed is driven to be the best and to continue to improve his skills and service.  Third, fundamental to Ed’s practice is to provide his clients service beyond their expectations.  Fourth, Ed’s passion and enthusiasm for the sport is impossible to miss.  Finally, he has lots of charisma; he likes people and people like him.  Ed’s charisma ensures his clients have a great time diving with him, want to come back for more and tell their family and friends to do the same.

Ed’s style is exactly what the scuba industry needs and what clients should expect:  100% client-focused with uncompromising commitment to safety, quality service, client needs and FUN!  He does a fantastic job, and is one of a very select few dive professionals I trust with my clients.”

“After speaking with Ed several times before our trip to Miami, discussing what my wife and daughter might like to enhance their experience, I became very comfortable with him as an instructor.

Ed provided a very personal touch through the whole experience. He made sure my wife and daughter received individual attention for fitting of their wetsuits, BCs, and all equipment. He arranged the dive trips to the Keys and Boynton Beach on dive charters. He made sure he brought snacks to munch on, and cover-ups to keep them both warm between their dives. He also brought hot water to pour down the wetsuits to warm them up. For my wife, this was huge.

Since we’ve been back, they can’t stop talking about our next dives. I just hope they will live up to the standard set by Ed. I have been diving for almost 30 years and would recommend him to anyone looking for a great dive experience. Thanks again Ed, for giving me two new dive buddies.”

“We grew up enjoying the ocean and all its wonders, so when my oldest daughter turned 11 and began asking for scuba dive lessons, my heart skipped a beat. I love and yearn for the ocean and its tranquility, but I’m also fearful of its dangers.

It wasn’t until she was 14 that I met Ed from Tropic Scuba. I immediately knew this was the person I would entrust my daughter with to learn how to dive. I couldn’t have made a better decision. Ed manipulated his busy schedule to accommodate our needs. He also worked miracles to certify our friends during their visit to Miami / Key Largo. He was so meticulous in every lesson that I never once felt fearful. The weather was not cooperative on any of the dives, but my daughter and friends all came away loving it.

If you’re looking to take away a lifetime love for scuba diving, with the security of understanding the importance of safety, Tropic Scuba is the place to go. Professionalism, safety and fun with a passion are what you’ll find. As a matter of fact, my husband was re-inspired watching us, and joined Ed for advanced certification. It’s contagious!”

“I have been dive certified since 2002. I have known Ed for the last eight years, and because of his passion for dive training, level of professionalism and attention to detail, I finally decided it was time to advance my certification. Since that time I have taken Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver, Nitrox and Master Diver certifications with Ed.  Because of him, I am extremely confident in my level of diving, to the point that I am now enrolled in the Dive Master class, and will later move on to Instructor classes.

I highly recommend taking Ed’s classes to those who want to advance or just refresh their dive skills.  He not only teaches you to dive, but also shows you how to dive safely, with the confidence to handle any situation.”

“I would like to thank you for your excellent service during our client trip to Miami.  Your customized service, picking us up at the hotel, and personalized tour route made a world of difference for our guests. It was the highlight of their trip and we look forward to booking our next adventure with Tropic SCUBA.
