Thanks!

I have been a certified diver for over 20 years, but I recently had my two teenage children get their certification through Moby's Dive Shop before taking them on their first dive trip to Cozumel. I was very pleased with the instruction they received and both of my kids did great on our 10 day trip. The dive masters all were amazed that this was their first trip. They were both extremely relaxed in the water. Moby's instructors did a great job with them. Both had no trouble at all with their buoyancy or air consumption. They were so relaxed drifting along on most of the dives I swear they were sleeping. I think they both were better divers than many experienced folks we ran into throughout the week. Both dropped the amount of weight they were using during the week and I think they were diving with about 8 pounds for their last several days which makes for very comfortable diving. Thanks!

Outstanding Service

Where to start. Moby's Dive Shop has been the most enjoyable experience, From the Instructors to the Staff they are all extremely knowledgeable and go above and beyond to make sure that you're comfortable and satisfied with every aspect of your diving education. I have purchased a total dive package that fits me perfectly. SSI is the Ultimate Dive Experience. So what you waiting for come down to Moby's Dive Shop and have the experience of a lifetime. Come share in the underwater world with us. The Adventures await . Thanks again Andy

Thank You Moby's! For Helping Calvin College!

I just wanted to say thanks to Moby's dive shop for helping Calvin College Campus Safety,

by providing us with dive gear to support our Annual Calvin College Seminary Pond Jump.

Having the proper equipment to respond to an emergency and have the ability to put Campus Safety in the water during this event, greatly enhanced the safety of our staff and students during the jump!

Thanks for allowing us to use your equipment - and without even any hesitation! Moby's is the BEST!

Excellent Service

I chose Moby's dive shop for scuba diving lessons for me and my 13-year-old daughter. Our instructor was Pete who I could immediately tell had a passion for teaching others to dive. At the first class, he told us he would take as much time as we needed to make sure we were comfortable with the skills needed to become a safe diver. Pete provided excellent instruction and we left for our vacation comfortable and confident for our dive trip.

Thanks for the excellent service

Great Dive Shop

I recently decided to take the training to get certified. Based on the positive reviews I choose Moby's Dive Shop. I could not be happier with my decision. Andy and Logan are first rate. They are very helpful and knowledgeable about the equipment. They made sure I got exactly what I needed and took the time to insure the correct fit. Pete is an excellent instructor and taught me the proper safe way to dive and managed to keep it fun at the same time. I highly recommend Andy and his team. Moby's is more than just a business that sells dive equipment. They are a great group of people that are truly passionate about safe diving and having fun.

Excellent Training

My daughter and I completed advanced training today. A potentially dangerous situation occurred at the bottom of a lake with zero visibility. Thanks to the excellent training we received through Moby's and our instructors, Adam and Dave, we were safely able to deal with the situation appropriately. We constantly see while diving with large groups that the training we receive at Moby's makes us better and more confident divers than others in our group. We can't be more satisfied with the training we receive through Moby's.

Top Marks,

Cannot imagine a better all-purpose dive shop.

Attended Moby’s open water class about 6 years ago, a great experience. Only recently acquired some equipment and went on a weekend dive excursion before embarking on a 7 day trip to the Caribbean, stayed at a dive resort and completed 16 dives. Never missed a beat, Moby’s had equipped me with all the knowledge, experience and confidence to seamlessly dive with a mix of other divers, some who had completed over 100 even 500 dives, all over the world. The week had some awesome dives, including boat and shore dives, night dive, wreck dives, shallow and deep. Andy provided invaluable advice and has been instrumental in selecting the perfect complement of equipment.

Planned a dive trip with 3 family members new to the sport they needed to rent equipment for the weekend and Moby’s spent a lot of time providing everything needed, all of which fit, and worked perfect.

Highly recommended. If anyone has any interest in diving I can’t believe you would find a better place to start and for the experienced diver looking for more; Moby’s.

Count On Moby's And It's Staff!

Moby's Dive Shop and it's owner, Andy Moblo, have been a presence of professionalism in the sport of scuba diving for years here in Grand Rapids. I have utilized Moby's Dive Shop for years as a customer and I recommend both Moby's and Andy regularly and without hesitation. Andy and his staff of instructors show a genuine caring towards their customers. Moby's is there no matter what you need! New gear, an air fill, a great place to get wet and do a dive! Moby's is the place to be. It doesn't matter if you have been diving for years, like I have, or are an entry level diver, Andy, his staff and instructors have the patience and will take the time to help you understand what you need to safely enjoy the sport! Moby's has top of the line equipment at reasonable prices too! Support your local dive shop. Without your support and with everyone using the internet to save a few dollars, many of these local shops find it difficult to compete! If you buy your gear at Moby's and have a problem, paying a couple extra bucks suddenly becomes worthwhile when you can deal face to face with the Moby's Staff and get help! Once again, I want to repeat that I, without hesitation, recommend Andy, his staff and instructors and Moby's for your scuba needs! You can trust Moby's! It is an established business that has been there for years and will be there for the sport of diving for many years to come!

Best Place For Learning To Dive

I took dive lessons 16 years ago from a different dive shop in West Michigan and lost my interest in the sport afterwards. When I decided to pursue diving again a friend recommended Moby's Dive Shop. After a couple of phone calls and emails to Andy I could tell that this dive training experience would be different from the one 16 years earlier. After attending the class sessions and completing the pool work I knew I had made the right decision in taking lessons at Moby's. The two instructors were patient, educated, and funny. They made me feel very safe and comfortable in the pool. The philosophy behind learning to dive at Moby's is knowing how to be safe and have fun. They certainly accomplished that and more. I highly recommend learning how to dive with Moby's Dive Shop. Thank you, Andy, Adam, and Steve!

Awesome With Families!

My 4 children (ages 11 & 14) and I are just finishing up our Open Water classes. Even though we are all confident in the water, I knew scuba would take things to a completely different level. The instructors know how to deal with kids in a confined classroom for 2 hours, keep things fun, and relieve anxieties in the pool. They are patient, calm, encouraging and FUN!! Also, because we purchased our gear at Moby's, any problems we encountered in the pool led to quick exchanges until just the right fit was found- big plus!! This is a great shop all around- so glad to have them nearby!!

Awesome

Just finished my open water diving class. I guess I am hooked, I love scuba diving. Thank you Moby's for your great class time, and awesome open water diving time. You have shown me a new frontier in adventure. I am grateful for your quality time you have poured into me, and answered all my questions. Made me feel confident, and secure, in my equipment. And would recommend Moby's dive shop to anyone interested in getting there open water diving permit. God bless

Great Service!

My buddies and I dove at Andy's (lake Versluis). I was the last one to get into the water. I put on my mask and it was very loose. As I looked at it I saw that the mask was broken. Great, all my friends are waiting and I can't enter the water. Well I wen't inside to see Andy to see what he could do to save my dive. Andy quickly assessed the situation and let me borrow a mask. After the dive, Andy was waiting for me with my repaired mask. He also told me that there was no charge for the repair. Wow! know that's great service. Andy has saved other dives for me, seems like every time I forget to bring my "save a dive kit" I have a problem. Andy, I can't say enough good things about you and your dive shop. I will be a customer of yours for as long as I'm able to dive!

A Great Beginning!

Andy was very helpful when I was buying equipment and I realized after the fact that I got a great deal! Adam and Matt were great as instructors and very knowledgable, They made the classes fun. I would recommend Moby's to anyone who wants to begin their diving adventures.

Much More Than Expected...

So, my wife and I are on the ends of snorkeling/diving. As a teen, I was in the water all summer (lakes/ponds) - many decades ago, even dabbled in scuba without any training (Not Smart!). My wife was at the local pool swimming laps.

So, when the idea opf snorkeling in the Bahamas came up, I was gung-ho. My wife was 'interested but a bit wary.

AndyM was great - suggesting 'appropriate equipment' and tips on what/how to proceed when in the Bahamas. He set us up with an excellent instructor, KevinR, here at the Belmont 'Y' (Versluis LAke had a foot of ice). Where, fortunately, we discovered some minor difficulties with our equipment. Andy got it all squared away and our trip was a huge snorkeling success. Had we not had his suggestions, helpful attitude and Kevin's training, we would have lost a day of Bahamas sun and water being frustrated.

Thank You, Andy. My wife wants to snorkel here in Mich more; it will be an option for every trip in our RV and I hope we can interest her in Scuba!!

Chose individual lesson due to scheduling. Received training from Adam Czarnopys. Adam was great to work with. He is highly experienced, very calm, confident and professional. Helps you develop calm and confidence as well as required knowledge. Feel like I have had great training and well prepared for a trip and lots of diving! Great to have a lake out the door of the dive shop vs. pool training!

Highly Recommended!

My wife and I decided to take dive lessons for a trip to Mexico we are planning. A friend of ours recommended Moby's as the best in the area. As it turned out, he couldn't have been more right. Andy and his staff are fantastic. Beginning with a discussion about the class all the way to the completion of our open water dives, Andy and his crew were willing to spend time teaching us the about the sport they obviously love. It is great to be taught by people who have a passion for both diving and teaching diving. I would not hesitate to recommend Moby's to anyone interested in diving. As far as I'm concerned, Moby's has earned a customer for life. Thank you Andy!

Visitors From The "Great White North" Get Certified At Mobeys

Just recently, my son and I travelled from just outside of Toronto, Ontario, Canada to get our SCUBA certification from Moby's. We were referred by a Grand Rapids friend. Andy developed a customized training program for us to suit our travel schedule. Andy's training techniques and professionalism definitely gave my son and I a great level of comfort which helped us concentrate on course content and not stress and anxiety. Andy's equipment that we were able to use for the dives, BCD's, wet suits, tanks and regulators were in great condition. The dive shop is fully equipped and the onsite lake facility is a great benefit as well because it's literally outside the training facility door.

We can't say enough about our SCUBA training experience. Thanks again Andy to you and your staff for making us feel right at home!

Recommend

Andy and team are excellent dive instructors, and I HIGHLY recommend them to all who are seeking to learn to dive. The team is very professional, skilled, and willing to answer any questions you throw at them. Plus if students bring food, Moby's has the grill on their deck for after dive munchies.

Long Time Customer

Moby's Dive Shop is the real deal!! My husband and I live 2 hours away and this is our shop of choice for EVERYTHING!! Moby's stands by their products and are reliable, helpful and always professional. Just what I want as a consumer. Sure you can buys stuff on the internet and then who is going to back it when or if something goes wrong. Give Moby's a chance to compete. You won't be sorry. Thanks Andy for all you do.

First Rate Crew At Mobys

Andy and his crew are first rate. There are so many things to like about Moby's... the people are great, the shop has great gear, the dive lake right out the door, the training, the trips... it's just a wonderful dive shop to have in Grand Rapids.

Exceeded Our Expectations

Moby's dive shop exceeded our expectations. My wife and I were going on vacation to St. Lucia and wanted to scuba dive. We both have very crazy schedules but Andy and Adam both worked with us to complete the course. Class sizing was small (only 6 of us) so you get personalized training. Even after trainingg was complete Adam took time out of his weekend schedule to allow us "additional" pool time. I can't wait to dive in the lake behind the shop during their fun dives. I would recommend Moby's to anyone wanting to experience the thrill of diving.

Can't Say Enough

Moby's Dive shop was perfect. I really can't say enough about the place. I walked in off the street, and the owner Andrew spent time with me walking through program details, equipment, scheduling for classes and next steps. I received instruction on weekends (there are numerous options), and had Connie as an instructor. She was wonderful working with us. Small group sessions. You get individualized attention. She doesn't push you past your comfort level. The instructors are very knowledgeable. The work load is not intense. Get out there and start diving.
