15 years after they initially certified me, the awesome folks at The Dive Shop processed my certification updates long-distance and with no discernible financial benefit to their organization. What's more? I needed it done in under a week. Lisa was on it! She directed me to a local shop and worked with them personally to make sure I had the skills I needed to update my credentials. I remember other Dive Shop folks being kind and unassuming, but Lisa is a rock star -- super friendly, amazing customer service, great ambassador to the sport of diving!

I am a graduate student who was looking to learn how to scuba dive so that when I go to visit my sister in Japan this summer I can dive with her. I e-mailed the dive shop and Lisa quickly sent me information on their classes. When I went to the dive shop to sign up Lisa was great! I told her I wanted to take this class as cheaply as possible and she was very helpful. I know I could have bought my gear online but I was worried that if i used it and something broke I wouldn't be able to get my money back. At the dive shop if your snorkel breaks or your dog decides he wants to chew on it, you can bring it back to them and they will give you a new one! I was happy with my gear (though I would recommend not getting the fins in the first package, instead get the nicer fins). I had started out saying I would not buy a wetsuit, the instructors suggested getting one, but I thought I would buy one online instead. I should have just saved my money. Just like the instructors said it did not fit. I had to send it back and bought one through the Dive Shop. Lisa is great at helping you find the proper size and gear. The classes were very informative and I am very comfortable with all the skills I have learned. I really feel like the employees at the dive shop are one big family and they are very welcoming and encouraging! I highly suggest the dive shop for both gear and scuba classes!

Awesome serivce. The Dive Shop Memphis is the best option in the midsouth. The previous comments are based on people who are not experienced divers. Comment one: CHECK YOUR OWN GEAR!!!!! Rule 1 of diving is trust your gear. Keep up the good work diveshop...50years is a great accomplishment

My wife and I had a great experience at the dive shop. The store gave professional instruction and quality equipment. I would highly recommend this store to anyone.

Every time i've gone in this place i've had a really horrible experience. They are extremely rude and arrogant and try to communicate that they know everything. They talk down to you like you don't know anything. I'm an experienced diver. I don't know everything. I like having a dive shop that can help me out with my questions. The answers and things these guys say are flat out false half the time. On my last visit, i was trying to rent a tank and use it in their onsite pool. Upon arrival they told me that i would have to have the service records of all my equipment before being allowed in their pool. In my entire diving experience i've never heard of a shop doing this. My friend's other dive shop owner (who confirmed my friends equipment servicing for them over the phone) said he had never in his 30 years heard of such a thing. They claimed it was a liability issue yet didn't even have us sign a waiver to use the pool. It was all very odd and they were extremely rude about it. They quickly got heated when i ask questions about it. My gear is under a year new but that didn't matter. You must have proof of servicing to be able to use their pool. I really think it was a racket to get money for servicing equipment, get me to pay for rental gear, or just establish some sort of sick dominance over the customer. It wouldn't have been so bad if they would have at least been respectful and kind. Its sad because there really aren't many dive shop options in memphis. This one is a very nice facility. But what makes a good dive shop is its people. I can say for certain that i couldn't recommend this place to anybody.

I started with The Dive Shop in Dec 2011. I am an 'older' student and I had a little trouble adjusting to the water enviroment. My instructor Steve was patient and understanding. He made learning the skills easier than I thought they would be. I met Lisa first and the assistance that she provided with choosing equiptment was very helpful. I found her to be pleasant and accomodating. I recently encountered Keith and Jennifer the Swim Instructor, both are pleasant people. I plan to take swimming lessons with Jennifer. Keith assisted me with the purchase of the rest of my equiptment and bundled it to save money. I'm sure that I could have found all of my gear online but I chose to purchase from The Dive Shop because of the confidence that I have in this facility and it's staff. I am looking forward to my first Dive Trip with this group.

The worst experience I have ever had with a dive shop. Both instructors I had (for intro and advanced classes) were incredibly sexist and rude. Lisa is okay. I was treated like crap just because I was a college student. When we went on our check-out trip for our advanced classes we were completely ignored the entire trip and then told right as we were leaving that we wouldn't be able to check out on one of our specialties even though they had already approved us for them. We were also treated like crap because we rented equipment. When we asked a question about it the reply was, "that's what you get when you rent equipment." I thought this was how you get treated as a newbie to the sport, but when I went to another shop for my initial certification, I realized that other shops, who don't have a monopoly in their own city, treat you much better. I have bought all my equipment and paid for other classes through my new dive shop in orlando (Diver's Direct) when I am down there for a trip just to avoid this one. Plus there isn't price gouging. P.S. comment below, you clearly work there. I am an experienced diver. Experienced enough to know I am treated much better at other establishments.

I can't say enough about the customer service I received from the moment I walked through the doors I was greeted by professionals. Diving was a hard thing for me to learn because I was so nervous by my instructor was patient and kind. If you are thinking about getting certified in the Memphis area, this is the place to come. Thanks a bunch guys!
