My husband and I are newly PADI certified Open Water Divers and did our certifications in a quarry in Richmond,VA. We wanted to get ocean experience before a trip later in the year so we chose Jupiter Dive Center for our Advanced Open Water and Nitrox certifications. Our instructor, Dave, was really knowledgeable and patient with us as we worked our way through our first ocean experience. I had fit issues and Dave and the shop owner went so far as to pull a new Scubapro Bella from inventory to make sure I had a BCD to dive with. Dave was very experienced, gave us great direction, and guided us underwater knowledgeably and safely.  [July 16, 2018]

We dived yesterday with Jupiter Dive Center and had 2 fantastic dives. Lots of turtles and sharks. Our dive guide was Dave and he was very patient and helpful. I would highly recommend this dive center.  [Claire, July 3, 2018]

TwitterFantastic experience today. Certainly the highlight of the trip for both myself and my son Andrew. Thanks for your tuition and your company today. It was a real  pleasure. [Matt & Andrew, Discover Scuba Diving, April 2018]

JDC LogoI can’t say enough good things about Jupiter Dive Center. It is an amazing dive center! Their location is on the water which is so convenient for your boat dives. Extremely impressed with the professionalism of the boat staff and all of the instructors. Our guide was Dave Felice and Dave was by far, the best guide/instructor that I have ever dove with. He truly cares about his students and will do all that he can to ensure that you get the most out of your dive. We won’t be diving with any other dive shop.  [Zach H, April 2018]

This was my and my sons first ocean dive since certification and as such we hired a private dive guide, Dave, from Jupiter Dive Center to go with us on our adventure. It was an awesome experience!!!! I would highly recommend this dive center and Dave to anyone!! The folks are friendly, fun, extremely knowledgeable and just made the experience great!!!  [Cyndi, June, 2017]

Went out with Captain Mike, and his dive master David and ship hand, Matt. David was very articulate, and took time with my son who was concerned about missing his safety stop. We had two great dives to the Tunnells and Scarface. Would recommend this dive shop to anyone.  [Michael, April 2017]

FB 5 starDavid is a class act of the highest caliber! I highly recommend taking classes with him. I’ve had the pleasure of diving with him many times. You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone more safe, professional or knowledgeable about diving!  [Bob Streams, October 2016]

I got certified by David Felice, and he was great to work with. He’s very thorough and makes sure you understand the concepts and instructions well. Would highly recommend him for your scuba needs!     [Jeanie Ladd, May 2016]

FB 5 starThank you for a great morning of diving on our honeymoon! Dave was a fantastic guide for my husband and me. He is very knowledgeable and calm. He even took the time to send us some amazing pictures that he took of us and and what we saw while diving. My camera would not have survived at the depths we were diving. I would highly recommend diving with him!     [Kylie & Jesse Harms, May 2016]

Straightened out my neutral buoyancy problem in about ten minutes. Fantastic instructor and person as well.    [Eric Blum, September 2015]

TA 5 starMany people are unaware until they get on the boat that diving in the Keys is an unsupervised event — they do not routinely put guides
in the water with certified divers less you specifically arrange it. If this bothers you or you otherwise want to enhance your diving skills and build confidence, you should contact Dave. I recently took two courses with him, running out of Ocean Divers, and he is the best instructor I’ve had. PADI Instruction is geared towards the least common denominator and Dave has a way of adjusting that to give you exactly what you need, so you are neither bored nor overwhelmed. He is patient, organized and an extremely good communicator. Dive with Dave and you will be a better driver.     [Tom MacAllister,  January 2015]

Dave is an excellent dive master! Extremely knowledgeable, safe, accommodating and fun to dive with. He made the whole experience of getting certified such a pleasure, which is exactly what you hope for – you don’t want to get scared off or overwhelmed by your initial experience because you’re not with the right instructor. He is patient and knows how to have a good laugh which helped put me at ease and makes all the difference when you’re learning to stay calm! I couldn’t recommend him more, he will give you the skills and confidence you need to become a great diver. Thank you so much again, Dave!!   [Alixandra Velia G, November 2014]

FB 5 starMy instructor for PPB, fantastic!! Calmed, patient and knowledgeable. Loved his tips and the diving!!!    [Maria Lima, September 2014]

FB 5 starDave was awesome. He trained my three brothers and cousin in their rescue certification. He was very patient with the group, and when plans fell through because of unforeseen circumstances, he was very flexible and found an alternate way to get a certain skill done. Awesome diver and teacher!    [Danie Desautelle, August 2014]

FB 5 starJust finished a refresher class/dive with Dave after years since my last dive. He’s knowledgeable, patient and just an all around great teacher. Thanks Dave!   [Catherine Kelly, May 2014]FB 5 starDave is a wonderful instructor. Very patient and knowledgeable. Really rough seas this week and with his help still managed to earn my open water certification. THANK YOU!!  [Santina Salerno, May 2014]FB 5 starDave was my instructor for Open Water certification and I would highly recommend him. In addition to being very knowledgeable and experienced, what sets Dave apart from my perspective is his ability to communicate clearly and be responsive to all questions and concerns in a patient and empathetic manner. He also has an overall calm demeanor and helps you build confidence in the skills you are learning at a pace you are comfortable with. I have had a lifelong fear of deep water and I am very grateful to Dave for helping me face it head on and push through to the other side. I was amazed at how calm I was on the final certification dives and I’m still in awe of the beautiful underwater world that has been opened up to me. I’m eagerly planning my next dives in FL in a few months! Thanks Dave!!!   [Sally Hilger, March 2014]
