"I just took the Advanced and Nitrox class and had the best time.  I now want to go all the way to Divemaster.  I learned so much that I never learned from the store I took my first class from and found Tropical Penguin’s instructors to be the absolute best.  Thanks everyone!!"




"There is always someone at the shop willing to go the extra mile to make sure that I have the right gear for the type of diving I want to do.  I have always received excellent advice on the type of gear to get and proper instruction on how to use it.  The caliber of instruction available is the best I have ever seen.  All the instructors have been instrumental in improving my diving skills and helping me to be a smarter diver.  Attending various classes including Rescue have broadened my experiences and also formed a new group of divers that I am very confident in diving with.  I am excited about future diving with Tropical Penguin Scuba and my new 'family'!"




"I had a great time getting certified at Tropical Penguin Scuba.  You guys have GREAT instructors, and a very friendly environment.  Watch out for Hans though.(Just kidding!) Diving at Lake Tahoe was an amazing experience, and thanks to you guys, I got to dive there for my training. How many people can actually say that! I can safely say that training and diving through Tropical Penguins has been one of the best experiences of my life so far, and I look forward to the many dives and classes to come with Tropical Penguins. Thanks for everything!"

"Doing both my Open Water and Advanced Certification at Tropical Penguin has been a great experience.  Over the last month or so, the high point has been the time Iıve spent in and out of the water with the guys from the dive shop.  Theyıve gone out of their way to accommodate my schedule.  Picking up or purchasing gear is always a pleasure as Hans or John or Vince or Jim or Kevin are inevitably manning the shop with a smile and a joke ­not to mention good information.  Best of all, I now feel comfortable, competent, and confident climbing into my equipment and SCUBA diving."
