I can recommend working with Bill more. I had an insanely tight window to get some certifications in before a big trip and Bill went out of his way to work with me to fit it all in. He also helped me find a place to get a last minute diver medical, got me set up with some great used and new dive gear to take with me. The quality of instruction, personalized attention and patience Bill has is very rare to find. He is also so passionate about diving and will spend any length of time geeking out on it! So fun to just chat and learn from him! If you are interested in trying to dive for the first time or want to take your diving to the next level this is where you should go.

Excellent website, easy to navigate. Researched all about Deep 6 Eddy Fins and had to get me a pair. Heard of their exceptional reviews and reputation by many, to include Dive Talk hosts. I have not tried them yet but the order was placed yesterday and already got an email that they shipped today. That's awesome.

I could write a novel on how good these guys are to learn from, but I think the most important part was their willingness to provide individual care. Three times in our class (me included) a student had an issue (such as anxiety) and one of the dive instructors would work with us individually to overcome the fear. By the end of the course we were all confident and competent divers. Had Viking Dives not been willing to work with each of us individually, we surely would have been left behind and would have given up on diving all together. Viking Dives is committed to making its students good divers.

It's hard to articulate how amazing of an organization Viking Dives is. Bill's zen like approach helped my wife overcome a traumatic experience she faced while diving a few short months ago. My wife was able to recapture her Zen for scuba. His approach is tailored to you he is more than just a scuba instructor. We have made a friend and his impact has brought positivity to our lives.

Man what a fantastic day very different than my other dives(warm tropical ocean) but couldn’t have felt more comfortable with Rudy and Andrea. I was very excited to see and talk about the safety aspects of diving (I’m a safety nerd) especially since this was my first altitude dive.Can’t wait to go out again with this group and have no problem traveling to them 100% worth it can’t say enough good things about them

Viking Dives is of the top dive companies I’ve experienced across 3 countries and 4 states. Bill was incredibly accommodating and flexible with our short notice and Rudy/Andrea were outstanding hosts. You truly get their full attention and care, especially with this being our first altitude dive. They have everything you need to be comfortable (even got a short 35 cu ft tank for me!). There isn’t enough space for me to list all the great things about Viking, so just check them out for yourself!

We ordered some fins from the shop, and unfortunately ordered them the very day that they left for their annual vacation. Totally my fault and I did not see it on the website that shipment would be delayed. The shop emailed me to confirm the delay, and I accepted responsibility for not seeing the information on the website. They offered to refund my money or attempt to drop ship the fins direct from the manufacturer......but the color we wanted were out of stock. We decided to go with another color instead, and she is having them drop shipped! Totally above and beyond service. THIS is what customer service SHOULD be. Even though it was totally my fault, they went above and beyond to get it right! Although they are a "young" business, and their online shop is not as vast as some of the other big vendors, those other vendors should take note of GOOD customer care. We live in Texas, so would not be in the neighborhood any time soon, but when we are, we would love to stop by and say thank you!! We will certainly be repeat customers!!!!

My wife became a client of Viking dives while her and I were completing our open water training. The Instructor we came down with was fine for me but not patient with my wife and she froze up. We met Viking dives and told them what happened. We met with them the following week at blue hole and their patience and mild demeanor made my wife comfortable and successfully completed the open water portion. With out Viking she would not be certified. With this certification we have already enjoyed St Marteen and Belize Thanks Viking dives for helping my wife get this certificate we are definitely enjoying the experiences the open water very has provided. Next deep water certification!

Cheap, Fast, or Good? Choose Two

There are two styles of dive training, a fast-food model and a high-end restaurant model.

If you go to McDonald’s anywhere in the world, you can place an order and have a pretty good idea of what to expect. It isn’t going to be a great meal, but it will be about the same price you’d pay elsewhere. You shouldn’t arrive with high expectations, or you’ll be disappointed. You’ll likely be nothing more than the number on your receipt.

You expect better service, food, and individual attention in a nice restaurant. Your experience will be better. Your server will use your name.

The same is true for dive training.
