TESTIMONIALS

"SCUBATech is a welcome and needed addition to the upper keys. I highly recommend the shop for anything from quick repairs, checking out dive gear at the start of a vacation to make sure your gear is in working order, or for required annual maintenance. Angel is highly competent, friendly and places the highest value on customer service. With SCUBATech you don't need to mail your gear out for repair or get the standard answer, usually given with a condescending frown of: "That will take at least four weeks." ~ Don Rhodes, PADI Master Instructor 25715

"After 3 other service centers failed in repairing my regulator, I was just about ready to send it to the graveyard when I happened upon ScubaTech. Within 48 hours Angel had it breathing like it did when it was brand new! I can't explain the feeling of joy I experienced on my first dive after getting it back! Angel - you are appropriately named! Thank you for resuscitating my old friend! " ~ LDT - Key Largo, FL

"Key Largo - you are blessed to have ScubaTech in your back yard! Angel has been servicing my dive equipment for 15 years. It's well worth the drive from Miami to know my regulator will be serviced right the first time, every time. Angel's years of experience sets him apart from the others! " ~ JR - Coral Gables, FL

"I again want to thank you for helping us out with the "pink" OTS mask last month. When Sandy used it underwater after you fixed it, she said that it was the easiest mask that she had ever breathed from! If your travels bring you to Austin, let me know and we will take you out and show you Austin." ~ Gary M. Mailman, MD ,President, Hyperbaric Medicine Consultants, PA - Austin, TX
