Our staff are experts in fitting and equipment knowledge. Where we excell is in our staff of instructors and dive professionals. With over 3000 certifications issued at all levels, we strive to produce a complete educational system that is a fit for every diver. In the nearly 30 years we have taken divers around the world exploring the many underwater environments and topside attractions as well. By natures design, we do not need to go far to enjoy some of the worlds best diving. The Santa Barbara Channel Islands located just two hours south has many dive sites that arguably rival many big name destinations.
In our many years we are always evolving. From a store that certified divers, took one international trip a year and was focused on education and spearfishing. We have become a well rounded staff of dive enthusiast who all have a different flare for diving but with one common love. Getting wet and exploring what the ocean has for us. Today we teach people how to become instructors and underwater photographers. We are travel specialist, reef ecologist and the eyes of the underwater world. We still spearfish and do so with the highest standards of responsible collection and consumption. We generally all have a passion for diving and can not wait to share that with you.We have taught many second generation divers whose parents to their beginning lessons with us and have now brought their children to us for professional SCUBA lessons.
We are that small town shop with a big store mentality and professionalism.
