Comments Tilden's was a wonderful group to work with. The experience level in my group ranged from instructor to new O/W divers. All were treated very well, with no unreasonable limitations. Weather kept us from Sombrero reef, which meant we dove less interesting reefs, we still saw good fish diversity. When a few minor repairs to equipment were needed, the staff was right there to help. They strickly enforce PADI diver limitations (O/W not allowed below 60 feet). I would highly recommend Tilden's.
