I cannot say enough how impressed I am with the staff at Penguin - they were all friendly and inviting when I entered the store, and fit me to the right gear! I was very impressed...

Worst

I took a scuba class and Tropical Penguin Scuba always has one excuse after another for why I do not have my certification card. They blame PADI (the certification agency) and say...

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/8/2013

We had our entire office staff trained and certified to dive by Tropical Penguin Scuba. They have been open for a LONG time, and they just do it right. The instructors are all PADI certified!!! i AM NOW PADI CERTIFIED BECAUSE OF TROPICAL PENGUIN SCUBA.\r \r I plan on having my kids certified to dive @Tropical Penguin in the next few years. I feel completely safe with their staff and thoroughly trust them. \r \r Their customer service can definitely be slow at times, but I dont mind waiting and browsing their large selection of Scuba gear.\r \r Call me the review police because I am now PADI certified because of Tropical Penguin Scuba! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/29/2012

I am a new~2~the~area diver... Tropical Penguin's staff was extremely helpful with pointing out the area's ""hot dive spots"" and they offer a WIDE range of classes, gear, and the knowledge 2 go along w/ all that! Not to mention, they're the only dive shop, w/in any reasonable driving distance, capable of servicing any/all your dive gear (new and/or old)!! Thanx again Penguins! more

The WORST! 9/10/2011

I took a scuba class and Tropical Penguin Scuba always has one excuse after another for why I do not have my certification card. They blame PADI (the certification agency) and say they been sent in, but that PADI is slow and sometimes holds them up. I called PADI and they denied this and said the owner Kevin Schwartz and Tropical Penguin Scuba have been permanently expelled and is not authorized to teach for them. Apparently only 4 stores in the United States have ever been expelled and they are one of them. I know of other divers that also have the same problem and get one excuse after another. Upon some research I have since learned they have been sued many times and have a BBB rating of ""F"".. I will never go to Tropical Penguin Scuba again. more

Terrible service! 7/2/2008

Worst possible service and rude. They lost all of our gear that was in for service, highly recommend you go somewhere else! more

Friendly, inviting and experts on gear! 12/3/2007

I cannot say enough how impressed I am with the staff at Penguin - they were all friendly and inviting when I entered the store, and fit me to the right gear! I was very impressed with how much they knew about the current equipment in the market, and upcoming changes for next year. They had great trip possibilities, and a lot of prior trip knowledge for where else go go dive.\r \r I will be back there for my next purchase!\r \r Tim\r more
