Polar Bear Dive Club Roundup 2021-2022

As the weather and water finally begin to warm, we want to thank everyone who participated in our second annual Polar Bear Dive Team and our team captains, Adam Parsons and Preston Gray! Let’s reflect on the amazing adventuress we’ve had this season.

The Polar Bear Dive Team was available to all divers with an Open Water Certification and 20 logged dives. Despite the cold, our Polar Bear Dive Team dove at the lake every other weekend and went on two dive trips to Lake Ouachita, Arkansas, and Lake Mead in Nevada.

This year, our dive team members were given:

  • A branded Polar Bear Dive Team Beanie
  • A branded Polar Bear Dive Team Rash Guard
  • Food at all Scuba Ranch dives
  • Free cylinder and weight rental for all Scuba Ranch days
  • Free cylinder and weight rental for all out of state trips
  • All logistics organized for out of state trips
  • Entrance to all raffles, giveaways and awards


You know there’s always fun to be had at Scuba Adventures! What would you like to see included in the Polar Bear Dive Team package next year?

Dry Suit Demo Day

Diving in cold conditions adds a unique extra challenge to divers that many enjoy! Many of our team members chose to get their dry suit diving certification to ensure comfortable dives while others chose to sport a 5-7 mil wetsuit with a hooded vest or a semi-dry wetsuit.

Diving in a dry suit isn’t for everyone! And we want to make sure our divers always have an enjoyable and safe experience. This is why we offer a unique and rare experience for our divers – try before you buy!

On Saturday, October 9th, we offered a dry suit demo day where members of the Polar Bear Dive Team could ask questions, learn about models and features, try it on, wear it in the pool, get measured for a new suit and customize it as needed (pockets, threads, trims, knee pads, colors).

Scuba Ranch

In addition to diving every other week at the Ranch, our Polar Bear Dive Team showed up for the annual Scuba Ranch Polar Bear Plunge on January 1st, 2022, to help Scuba Adventures win the biggest dive squad for the second year in a row! We have an amazing group of passionate divers.

Cold Water Diving Scuba Adventures

Scuba Diving Lake Ouachita, Arkansas

Nestled in the Ouachita Mountains and over 975 miles of shoreline, Lake Ouachita provides a perfect playground for scuba diving enthusiasts. The clear waters and lack of currents make it an ideal spot for beginner divers, and the plethora of fish and sunken objects make it a paradise for more experienced divers. It’s no wonder that scuba diving in Lake Ouachita is a popular pastime for both locals and visitors alike.

Our Polar Bear Dive Team enjoyed a weekend of diving at Lake Ouachita. Check out some of the amazing photos:

Scuba Diving Lake Mead in Nevada

At Scuba Adventures, we go big or go home! That’s why we rented an entire mansion for our weekend diving adventures at Lake Mead in Nevada.

Our Polar Bear Dive Club had the privilege of diving the 1948 Lake Mead Boeing B-29 crash. Diving this crash requires a special permit, which is no longer going to be issued! Our Polar Bear Dive Team truly had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that many divers will never be able to experience.


Looking to Take the Plunge into Cold Water Diving?

Does this all sound like a fantastic way to spend your fall/winter? Join our 2022-2023 Polar Bear Dive Team!

Customer Reviews

John Worthen July - 2020

I can’t recommend this place enough. After moving to the area, I read a lot of reviews and emailed several dive shops before going with Scuba Adventures. I choose them because they were the most responsive and helpful. The owners seem to not only be great divers but have business backgrounds. This is the most focus on customer service I have seen in a dive shop. Good inventory with all of the brands I could ask for. On point with their pricing. If you do find a better price they will work with you.

I ended up taking the Rescue Diver course and had a blast! I just got back from a dive trip with them at Lake Travis, very enjoyable. They also have one of the only indoor pools (18 ft.) in the area.

At Scuba ranch they have a big spot that is one of the easiest to get to and a nice pavilion for training. They are right next to the air refill station, which I love! Family and friends are welcome at the ranch. Good community there on weekends and you'll most likely find a dive buddy for a fun dive.

Maddie Womack August - 2020

Scuba Adventures and their staff are beyond amazing! Their Plano store has a very wide selection of equipment and the pool is 18ft deep! Their Scuba Ranch location is amazing and still growing, with plenty of room and seating. I’m a fairly new diver and all the instructors do an amazing job of making me feel safe and secure deep underwater. Their staff is always very helpful and I can’t wait to continue my diving knowledge and certificates with them.

Jason Domenden March - 2020

Found a great diving shop for all my gear. Been living here in texas for awhile and this shop has just what I needed. Really recommend scuba adventure for all your gear.

Emily Winnenberg March - 2020

Went in last week to pick out goggles for an upcoming trip— loved the selection of masks they had available! Ended up picking out a hot pink pair to shamelessly match the other accessories I’d picked out.

Matt K March - 2020

The new owners are the greatest! Their positive approach towards people and the sport of diving are huge part of the reason I love the sport. When they told me they were going to open a dive shop; I knew without a doubt I was going to be their customer. I have taken several dive adventures with them and other scuba diving misfits, and plan on taking many more.

Martin Garvie February - 2020

Decided to revisit this shop since it is under new management. Already impressed with the facility improvements - by far the best training pool I have seen. Looking forward to the roll out of the full training curriculum - will be able to go from open water certified through all kinds of technical specialties. Good dive gear selection. Owners really have a great vision for promoting scuba diving and ocean adventures.

Don Champlin July - 2020

This is the shop with the most experienced and competent personnel in the metroplex. Their commitment to safe, enjoyable and professional instruction is obvious from the first time you enter the store and meet the staff and owners. I have dove with most of them over the years and know first hand the love of diving they have and now share with the community as the new team. They are knowledgeable and up to date with the latest dive info. Don't miss a chance to dive with them.

Julie L February - 2020

In January 2020, Scuba Adventures was purchased by divers that were affiliated with a different scuba store. These same divers taught me to dive, and got me to fall in love with scuba diving (despite me being pretty scared to start). I trust them, enough that I opted to take a trip with them to Cozumel for diving in 2019. It was one of the best trips of my life, and now I'm already signed up for their Costa Rica dive trip in 2020 with Scuba Adventures. I haven't visited the shop yet, but I can 100% vouch for the new owners--they are knowledgeable divers, good people, and all around amazing.

Jeremiah Perez May - 2020

Owners and staff are professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. Allowed me to try backplate and wing set up in the pool. They did not pressure me to buy anything, but gave great information on products and financing options. All in all great staff and would recommend them to anyone!!!

Eric Coulombe August - 2020

Great customer service, from the owners to the employees. Very knowledgeable about everything and anything pertaining to scuba diving. The instructors are highly educated and experienced in scuba diving. They put you through real life scenarios, so you know and understand what to do in the event something happens while you are under water. My family and I learned a lot about scuba diving in a very short amount of time. We will definitely keep taking additional courses with Scuba Adventures as we progress. We definitely reccomend Scuba Adventures to anyone wanting to learn and get scuba diving certified.
