In that short time, Grove Scuba has gone from a PADI dive shop to Miami’s only PADI 5 Star Instructor Training Center. From beginning certifications to instructor training, Grove Scuba is committed to serving the Scuba Diving community locally and internationally with a multi-lingual staff of instructors. We offer all our courses in both English and Spanish and offer courses based around your schedule.

I went today because the I normally go to gave me bad service and information. No body acknowledged me I walked all over to see what you had found what I needed but I guess you guys were having too much fun to notice me. I did leave because I got tired of waiting to pay for my items.

Hi Max. We're very sorry you had this experience at our dive shop. Thank you for contacting us and we take all feedback seriously. We take pride in our customer service and try to go over and beyond for our customers. What happened to you is not the norm here at Grove Scuba. There was a 30 min period on the day in question when we had 8 divers that were late for the boat and the shop was scrambling to get everyone ready and out the door, making sure that they had everything that they needed. That group also had a few people that were here just waiting, going on the boat as a passenger, but not needing anything. We never make excuses here, but we believe you came during that time and although it shouldn't have happened, staff in the shop might have thought you were with that group. We hope you give us another try and come back to see us. If you come back, say who you are. We'll personally apologize to you and give you a 20% discount on anything you chose to purchase Thank you once again for expressing your thoughts, good our bad, about our store. Again, we take all feedback here seriously

I bought a groupon for my stepson to get his open water cert. We went in, got the materials, and were told he could come take the test when he is ready and they will put him in a class. After almost a year I called to schedule the test before the expiration of the certificate. When the person on the phone asked me if my stepson was ready, I responded honestly that he could use more time but the certificate was expiring so we'd give it a shot. He told me not to worry, that since we'd already redeemed the certificate, he could have as long as he needed to prepare for the test. Today we went to schedule the test and were told that we'd have to pay $100 more since the groupon expired. I'm not sure if a policy changed or if whoever I spoke to provided wrong information, but I certainly will not be returning to this establishment.

I'm a Dive master & been diving for 30 years. I was a Bubbles customer until it closed down. I visited Grove Scuba the 1st. month that opened next to Burger King. I had a Burger King cup with a lid & water inside so the young inexperience lady working there told me I couldn't be inside the store with the cup. I turned around & never looked back again. I didn't know a cup of water was a hazard to all your waterproof products.

Grove Scuba is extremely sorry you had a bad experience with our store 5 years ago when we first opened in our new location. We would love to welcome you back to our store so you can experience some of our actual courses or services to have a more comprehensive foundation in order to review us. We feel confident that if you take the time to interact with our store and staff that you would be impressed with our knowledge, professionalism and love of diving.

I'm an independent PADI Instructor, but I buy my PADI materials through Grove Scuba. I called Bill on Friday to place an order. He only had a few of the new Open Water materials in stock, but offered to ship those if I needed them quickly. I was told that the rest of my materials would be here by Thursday, but I just got notified that they were shipped this morning and should be here a day earlier than anticipated. This is typical of the helpful, can-do attitude I have always received from Grove. Kudos guys.

Amazing experience all the way. I visited at least 4 scuba diving stores prior Grove Scuba and none compared to the fantastic customer service I recently received here. Bill and Adam answered every single question I had with no rush, explained every detail of the courses, products and diving scenarios. Upon signing in for Open Water Padi course, Bill and Adam Worked to accomodate to my schedule. I went thru the course,written and physical test (including 20 skills) and was able to receive my Open Water Padi Certification, very happy with the instructors Adam and Josh and not only Bill (The Owner) but the entire staff will treat you like family. In Summary, Grove Scuba was the best out of 4 different scuba stores visited, most organized, clean, and best of the best customer service. Sincerely, Yamir

This is by far the easiest review I have ever written! I have honestly never been more pleased to put money into something, i.e diving. I typically only write negative reviews, it takes an awful lot for me to take the effort to write something positive, but if there were something greater than 5 stars Grove Scuba would deserve it. In one word Grove Scuba is AMAZING, but because they’re so phenomenal they deserve as many praises as possible. Not only is the store well set up, and consumer friendly, but the website is easy to use and aesthetically pleasing (something other dive shops in Miami appear to lack) and the staff is absolutely top notch. I never felt like they were trying to sell me something I didn’t need, and they come across as genuinely interested in creating the best experience for their (customers/students) as possible. I completed my open water with Patrick Nichols and could not have felt more comfortable, safe, or had a better time in the water. Patrick is extremely skilled. I’ve dived with him several times after completing my certification and continue to be impressed. On a day with terrible conditions where visibility was down to a foot we were able to exit the water within spitting distance of where we went it. I am so pleased with Grove Scuba that I’m even going on their dive trip to Bonaire, which was incredibly easy to commit to as the made all arrangements besides a plane ticket. I’m additionally pursuing my advanced diving through them and refuse to go anywhere else for my dive needs. I wish everything in life were as easy and fun as diving, but believe I would not have had this experience with any other dive shop. Whether you’re looking to be a discover scuba diver or become a dive master, you can’t go wrong with Grove Scuba.

I haven't experienced their services just yet but I have emailed a few of the other places in the area as well and not only did they answer quickly but were friendly and gave me info that I didn't know I should ask! (None of the other places got back to me). Very happy and I plan on attending a dive in the next few weeks. I won't even consider anyone else in the area now :) Thank you guys!

Spent several days diving with Grove Scuba and can not recommend them highly enough. Lovely shop, lovely people.
