The experience we had with SCUBA Adventures was amazing. We came in knowing almost nothing about anything and they treated us with respect and patience. They helped us pick out the gear we needed and even let us exchange some fins while we were still attending class so we could try out another fit. The Instructors were top notch and answered the many questions we had. We will definitely be returning to rent/purchase gear and to attend more advanced classes!
Thank you Sarah and to every instructor that helped me along the way. They all have patience and take their time to help each person to master the skills needed to become divers. What a wonderful family and time. Now I can explore new adventures

This is definitely not your typical Scuba store. The staff is super friendly and helpful, they know their Scuba gear. They sell only the coolest brands and they can recommend you the best scuba trips. I did my confined water certification in their pool, they were so helpful! I will definitely continue to buy my gear there.

Wife and I are headed to Iceland and planning to dive Silfra. We had Elon as our dry suit instructor with Barry as the assist. Absolutely a great team and we feel setup for success. Thank you Scuba Adventures and Elon!

I completed my open water certification this weekend and am so excited. The staff at Scuba Adventures Plano truly made it a wonderful experience. Our instructor David Blasingame and Dive Master Bonnie Sanford helped me feel comfortable with the equipment and feel safe while learning the right way to dive. I could not give enough kudos to the store and staff. I honestly feel like part of the family. I love my new equipment and look forward to diving in the future with all the new friends I met over the last 2 weekends. I could not be happier with my choice. Now I’m ready for the group trips and diving the crystal blue waters around the world.

Joined the scuba Adventure team to get certified for an up coming scuba trip. Had a wonderful experience and feel 110% more confident and comfortable after taking the open water course. We signed up for a private class with Brent and would definitely recommend it! Also, to add everyone at SA was nothing but helpful and fun. The whole team made the experience that much better!!

This is an amazing dive shop! Over the summer, we’ve decided to get open water certified. Scuba Adventures Plano has a team of amazing instructors and staff. David was an excellent instructor and helped us get confident in the required skills needed. Also, after completing the certification, they’ve welcomed us back to their pavilion at the Scuba Ranch in Terrell for additional dives. Each weekend we’ve visited, they’ve treated us like family and provided us with assistance when needed. Scuba Adventures has turned into my favorite place to visit to kill time, shop for equipment, and a wonderful family to be a part of when visiting the Scuba Ranch.

I took an inactive diver refresher course, after not diving für several years. Wendel and Mackenzie were AWESOME!! So patient and fun, easy going and supportive! I will definitely be signing up für some other classes. The pool was really warm, and comfy. Class size was good, not too crowded. It’s nice that the class I took was later at night, since I live a bit far from the scuba center. So glad I took this class, will definitely be back!

What a great scuba shop! I am a new diver that took their open water course and then went on one of their trips (Belize Aggressor lV). The experience I gained was amazing. There are so many talented divers associated with this shop, from professional divers, instructors, and even the divers that have logged a lot of hours diving. I had all of these on my trip and each one was willing to help, give tips, encouragement and advice on how to be a better diver. And if I hadn’t asked for the advice, just watching them dive was a great example to learn from.This dive shop has created a dive family that I am grateful to be a part of! Friendships made and beautiful diving made my trip one of the best!!!

Great dive shop, whether you are looking to learn to dive, take additional training, purchase or upgrade equipment, find your next diving adventure, or just find fellow divers to connect with. Stop by. You won’t regret it!I have to add to my review. Sadly I can’t add more stars because five is all Google will allow. 😂 However, I can add more praise.I’m addition to being the premier place to learn to dive, extend your training, practice diving, and get high quality dive gear in the DFW area, Scuba Adventures also hosts great… well… adventures. I just got back from a trip to Belize for a liveaboard dive trip. Not only was the trip just a fantastic time, but I also had the opportunity when we weren’t underwater to chat with the owners quite a bit, and I can tell you that they are not only passionate about diving (which I would expect from somebody who runs a dive shop), but they are equally passionate about great customer service and treating their employees and customers like family (which I think is considerably less common in the industry).Looking for a scuba shop? You found it!

We love this dive shop and had a great first experience! We also got an Advanced Nitrox Certification included for the price along with our regular Open Water Certification.Earlier this year, we became interested in getting SDI Open Water certified. Originally, we were looking at prices at different shops thinking, “Okay, $300 or $500 each is not bad”. The more I called around, the more I realized that the total expense of it was far more than shops listed. What initially drew me to SCUBA Adventures Plano is that when I called, they picked up the phone, and when I asked about brutally-honest price estimates for the whole thing, they were able to give them accurately. Other shops tried to downplay the overall cost, but SCUBA Adventures acknowledged that it’s an expensive, but worthwhile hobby – that won my trust!Overall, per person, we spent $495 on the course itself, $40 for two-day entry at the scuba ranch, $50 on tank refills for 6 dives (of which I only used 5), $30 in optional tips to our volunteer instructor, $20 for diving boots/socks from Amazon, $20 for a basic mask/snorkel set, and $80 for a set of fins. The complete, total cost of getting scuba certified here was $735, and it came with an additional Advanced Nitrox Certification Class. If money’s an issue, I definitely recommending asking for the complete cost, including the costs of personal gear and the trip to the SCUBA ranch.Our instructors were David and Bonnie. They were some of the friendliest, passionate, patient, but strict instructors that I could ever imagine getting. There were moments where they adapted the plan around some students’ health issues, and they made everyone feel welcome. If someone did something wrong, they would tell you the seriousness of your mistakes without making you feel bad about it. Bonnie made us some awesome snacks throughout the course and David even made us some delicious BBQ out at the SCUBA ranch! They didn’t have to do this; they just want to make the certification process fun! We couldn’t have had better instructors.We also found out this place does dive trips, so we’re now watching the Facebook Page for anything fun and in budget! Since we cheap’d out on some of the equipment initially, we’ll likely be in the market for some better gear soon now that we know we love diving!

We had an outstanding experience with Scuba Adventures. We wanted to get certified before our trip this summer. We purchased gear and did all of our training at SA. At every step the staff was really engaged and helpful. They wanted to make sure our gear worked and fit correctly. The pool class was the perfect size and it really helped my kids and I get comfortable with all of the equipment. The open water experience was fantastic. We had a little trouble getting our buoyancy figured out. We never felt like we were causing a problem or dragging people behind. They had plenty of staff available to give us the attention we needed. The great team at Scuba Adventures really helped us overcome our nerves, get comfortable and get excited about our trip. We will definitely be sending people to Scuba Adventures in the future. Highly highly recommend.

Took the open water course here. Great diving and training experience. Chris is our instructor and Bruce is our dive master. Both Chris and Bruce are patient, knowledgeable and friendly. We can feel from our bottom of heart that they really want to train us to be diving ready and have taught us more than curriculum requirements. I am looking forward to continuing diving training with them.

We purchased the private class for group of 6 and it was such a fun experience! Chris is our instructor and Bruce is our dive master, they helped us and guided us through the whole training and testing . Each training sessions are very well organized and every one of us were well taken care of. Chris covered not only all SDI testing requirements but also some PADI ones and extras during the indoor pool training sessions, which we very much appreciated as when it comes to safety, you can never be too careful! And the shop staff are all very nice, they took time with you when you are buying your personal equipments and try the fittings, there is no rush and they do not try to sell you things you don’t need. When we were doing the open water testing the shop owner was even doing lottery and giving out many free gifts to people, and they cook us lunch and breakfast at the ranch. We had great fun and will definitely come back when we need professional opinions on gears or other diving classes!

I had a great experience getting my Open Water Diver Certification here. The instructors were very knowledgable and passionate. Great to learn from people who practically make diving their life. They take their time with each person too if there is something you are struggling with. At the beginning of the instruction, I could not figure out how to equalize, and by the end, they had me dropping like a rock! I 100% would recommend to friends and family and am even thinking about doing additional courses. The folks in the shop were very helpful too, and they had a great selection.

I am a VERY SATISFIED customer of the Discover Scuba and the Open Water Certification classes. Their pool and equipment you use is VERY well kept and maintained, never any question at all of anything you use. The staff is always super bright, friendly, open to any questions, super helpful. Honestly I dunno if there’s a better dive store option in the DFW area. You’d be hard pressed to find a shop with better knowledge and staff than they got.

I spent the greatest 4 days in a long time with Brent, Sarah, and Autumn at Scuba Adventures in Plano TX doing a private open water scuba diver certification They are extremely professional, knowledgeable, and safe. not to mention a lot of fun. They take their time with you and make sure you understand everything both in the classroom and in the water. By the end of my training I actually felt I could go on dives and feel comfortable and competent. They also book fabulous trips. So really encourage you all check them out.

This had been on my bucket list for many years and thanks to all of them, I can mark it off!

I can’t speak highly enough about the outstanding staff here! They’re passionate about what they do, and it shows.I took the open water certification weekend course and couldn’t make it through day 2. The military had left me with some major hangups with being under water. Rusty, our class instructor, offered to work with me individually. He gladly donated his time to help me become a diver, and it worked. I went from panic under water to actually enjoying it. There’s a different world under the waters surface and for me, Scuba Adventures opened the door to it.As for their retail business, everyone is friendly and helpful every time I stop by. They really make the customer feel like part of the family.

I was a victim of paying fees and charges. Which i lost huge amounts, i came across ma’am Magdalene James strategy and recoup plan, the project was centred on recouping lost funds. It a plan for those whom might have lost their hard earn money trading with other scam platforms and newbie investors seeking for a legit brokerage. The project sounded like a ploy, a platform with 5 withdrawal gateway that suits newbie investors too.

I actually was introduced to Scuba Adventures when I went to an aquarium convention. The staff was super friendly from the beginning and I loved hearing about their experiences. Fast forward a friend and me took their Scuba Discovery class, something that I highly HIGHLY recommend if you want to see if scuba is for you, the instructor was fun, knowledgeable and even went the extra mile to make sure everyone felt comfortable, even if they decided scuba just wasn’t for them. My friend and I ended up loving it and took their open water certification course with instructor Tom Vyles & Jason Shugart assisting. The experience was fantastic, Tom was very reassuring, informative and supportive. You truly feel like they want you to succeed and fall in love with this sport just as much as they are. Going out to the Scuba Ranch was a great experience and where I think it clicked even more so that you not only gain the ability to dive all over the world but, you become part of a family of divers. All of them willing to share their stories, photos and excitement. I am sure some people will feel some apprehension over the idea of diving but the support and encouragement of both Tom & Jason (and yes by the rest of the shop) is something that will leave an everlasting impact on you. You can be an absolute novice like me with no clue and walk out with new skills and an open door to an amazing new world. This is only the beginning and I am excited to continue my journey in diving and shops like this, with the staff and instructors they have I feel like I have found more than just a new hobby but, a community.
Such great peeps. It’s important to establish yourself with a dive shop that has safety at the forefront, and then cool stuff to buy. These guys do it all. They allowed me to try on fins. I’ve been using my very old Cressi snorkeling fins for the 13 years I’ve been diving. Swimming around their pool, one of their Dive Instructors watched my while we both were under the water. He suggested I keep my fins. We talked through the issues, and suggested I weight my ankles. Their goal is to help you be an excellently safe and an excellent diver. Then, they can sell stuff. The weights cost a lot less than a new pair of fins. That said, Mexico Airport Security confiscated my ankle weights. I will have to buy them again! I’m buying them from the dive shop instead of online because SERVICE is what you want. They service my BCD. I’ll have them service my reg. My husband had them look at his computer. These guys are divers first. They want you to be safe and have a great time. Cheers to the owners of Scuba Adventures Plano!

I have been with this shop for a long long time and got my Open Water with my 2 girls and had such a great time doing that and then later working up to my Master Diver and still having a great time with the Dive Masters and Instructors. Please look into this shop if your interested in diving as you will not go wrong as they will make you family.

It took a long time for me to find a local dive shop that I was happy with. A great LDS is more than just the quality of the inventory and the customer service which btw is outstanding here. What really drew me to the shop was two fold. One is the quality of training. I didn’t take all my training at Scuba Adventures but I chose them for most of the more advanced training I’ve received. The instructor and dive master staff here is above and beyond from Open Water to Tech oriented classes. Second is the really great sense of community here. It’s more of a dive family than just another local dive shop. This is a place you can start with and grow with.

Great scuba shop, friendly helpful staff with no pressure sales. Very informative and knowledgeable staff who will help you out.Even after you’ve been certified, the staff at Scuba Adventures treat you like family. They hold events throughout the year, allow you to use their pool (when it’s not booked), organise dive trips, welcome you back to their pavilion at the ranch… the list of hospitality goes on…. You’d be a fool not to come here for you diving needs.

I’ve done a few scuba discoveries during previous trips but I didn’t really know what I was doing. I finished the open water diver course earlier this month and am definitely more confident when diving and enjoyed it a lot more. This crew is fantastic with exceptional customer service! They’re all super friendly and knowledgeable, and just want you to have fun. My awesome instructors were Zack and Preston, extremely patient and wanted to make sure I was comfortable before releasing me into the wild! Take the course, I’m sure you’ll fall in love!

Wow, I cannot believe what they did for the store this last year. The pool has a whole new makeover and the water is more clear that ever. Every tile is cleaned or new and the whole place is spotless.All the above makes a world of difference to divers, especially new divers that may be concerned about walking into uncharted territory.The staff is attentive and takes extra care with each customer and new student. Students feel secure in knowing they are getting top-notch instruction from instructors that will make every effort to make sure their diving hobby will become a lifetime sport.My wife and I worked for Dive Training Magazine for 25 years, so we’ve seen lots of stores and instructors in many countries. With that in mind, I will say that you can do no better than learning and having a relationship with Scuba Adventures Plano.

If it were possible to give this dive center more stars I would. Where do I begin to complement everyone at this center. It started when I got my gear to prep for the classes. They made sure everything fit and gave me multiple options and explained the pros and cons of each. The classes were amazing! Rusty, Barry, and Brad spent time making sure we all felt safe and could perform each skill. The open water test was also a breeze. Through the shop we were able to go to Spring Lake to dive as it was still to cold at ScubaRanch. Again, they made everything so easy. I will also say if you plan to rent any (and I mean any) equipment, this is the shop for you. When I was on my dive I had several other divers comment on the quality of equipment I had rented. They were blown away that a shop would rent out higher end equipment. If you are even remotely interested in learning to dive just stop by, they will happily answer your questions.

When I signed up to get certified last September, I had no clue that I would fall in love with a dive shop. But I did!! Seems like overnight they became a place I can’t live without. I have taken several classes with them now, and signed up for several trips. The first trip I took, Brent (the owner) traveled with us. He watched out for everyone on the trip and gave great advice . Everyone there will treat you like family. Through them I found my spot in this phase of my life. Can’t say enough good things. If you are considering trying the sport this is the place to go. They are the best!!!!❤️

My wife and I purchased snorkeling gear for an upcoming trip and were very pleased with the service, knowledge, and selection. We asked about Open water scuba classes just to get a price and soon after decided to sign up. The classes were on a weekend and very organized. The facility is clean and well organized for teaching. We both enjoyed the class and both our instructor and dive master were outstanding and very knowledgeable.

He rated them a 10/10!

As someone who never before had interest in scuba diving and was fearful of the idea of even trying, I am so happy with my experience at Scuba Adventures Plano. I was able to participate in the evening courses for open water and it was so convenient for my schedule. The instructors make the experience fun while making sure you really are learning and taking in all you need to know to safely enjoy scuba diving. By the time we got to the lake after two weeks in the pool all my anxiety about scuba had disappeared. They also make you feel very much apart of the ‘scuba family’. It’s nice to know I have the resources to continue with my diving adventures at Scuba Adventures Plano. I now hope to attend one of their scuba trips in the future!

Scuba Adventure is amazing. Everyone here is knowledgeable and awesome. Just finished my scuba certification while doing the weeknight classes and it was great. It gave me something to look footpath after work. The instructors are PERFECT they truly want everyone to enjoy diving and you can tell that in the way they teach. They make you feel comfortable in the water with your gear and while working with you on skills. Scuba Adventure has genuinely made me fall in love with diving. If you are ever wondering if you should try diving do not hesitate to go for it, and make sure you go with Scuba Adventure.

Pros:- Friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful folks.- Very nice heated pool with great depth.- Great inventory and selection.- Patient and willing to share their knowledge and experience.- Ability to test and try-out demo gear in their pool.- Lots of options for classes, instruction, and continuing instruction.- Outstanding service.Cons:- Not a single one.The wife and I recently got certified overseas and I decided I wanted to get my own gear, continue learning, and dive a lot more. The wife, however, was not nearly as enthusiastic as me . . . but the kind, helpful, and welcoming staff here really helped bring her around to where she is now looking at dive vacation spots, excited about new gear, and is even interested in taking more classes!I have to give a special shout out to Rusty and Autumn who I’ve worked with the most. Rusty and Autumn learned about what our interests and possible future dive interests were, suggested appropriate equipment, and took the time to make sure we got to try everything we were considering in the water to make sure it worked for us. Needless to say, we are happy and confident in our gear selection and in the process of getting our complete setups form here.Rusty and Autumn have been immensely patient with us as new divers (okay, mainly me as I’ve talked their ears off) answering so many questions and sharing their experience and knowledge in the process. They won’t try to sell you the newest, most expensive, whiz-bang thing if you don’t need it. If anything, they’ll save you money by helping you realize what works best for your needs. You can tell they care and want to build a long-term customer relationship.If you are like me and have someone who may not be as interested in diving as you are, I encourage you to bring them here and let them get to meet the staff. What they did for my wife was address any concerns or anxiety she still had, increase her enthusiasm for the sport, and helped find equipment that made her feel much more comfortable in the water. That translates into more trips together and more enjoyable diving, which is a big win for me.I can’t thank the folks here enough for their kindness and help. I’d give y’all 10 stars if I could!

I just finished my open water and nitrox certifications with Scuba Adventures. This place is great! Customer service is absolutely top notch from a staff who is obviously passionate about scuba. The coaching and real world advice from everyone is incredibly valuable for someone like me who is new to scuba. I appreciate all the time that was invested in being sure the equipment I got was a perfect fit. This is not something I could have done shopping online. Personal thanks to everyone (Brent, Rusty, Autumn, Shug, Tom just to name a few) for your help, advice and the good times that will not be forgotten.

The wifely-type had a great experience with her latest scuba purchase from the store. Folks were knowledgeable and friendly. Had the pleasure of diving with one of the owners (Scott) and was quite impressed with his methods for running Scuba Adventures and his ideas for connecting with people, bringing them into the diving community/family. A top-notch scuba shop run by good people?… pretty hard to beat that. Thank you Scott and Scuba Adventures! You’ve gained two new customers and friends.

Nice shop with lots of inventory. Nice, friendly staff. They made me feel like I have been going there for a while now. Even without making a purchase, they offered to fill all my tanks for free as part of my “Welcome to Texas” package. They also gave me lots of information about the local diving here, as well as dive trips.
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with these guys. Just check them out!

Awesome customer service. Really good prices on gear too. I found some stuff to be cheaper than online sellers including Amazon. They have a great pool for training, and their rental gear is too notch. I went on a trip one of the owners was on also, and he was AWESOME!!! Always encouraging me and my wife to have fun, help us be better divers, and making sure the group all knew if there was something cool to see. All around good people.

Very clean dive shop. Offers a great variety of dive equipment / gear / accessories.I 💯 RECOMMEND GETTING YOUR CERTIFICATION HERE! They have a pool ONSITE and it is spacious, kept warm, and deep!!!! The staff are super accommodating and once you are a certified customer; you can even make an appointment to get some pool time (my spouse and I did this before a dive trip as it was a year since we were certified) Scott is very knowledgeable, and friendly! This dive shop also hosts dive trips for when you are ready to get your feet wet. (Literally) ☺️For the non divers you can get your mermaid certification HERE! – I actually am a Scuba Adventures Mermaid graduate!!! Or you can easily shop for the scuba enthusiast in your life. You can never have too much gear!!!Overall great experience with Scott and Scuba Adventures and I will be returning to purchase an underwater apparatus for my phone to take pictures under water. ☺️

Listening in on the lessons and dive briefings, I’ll tip my hat to the dive masters’ professionalism & competency, all the while making the day (and more importantly, the diving) fun and insightful. Thank you, Tom, thank you, Shug, thank you, Barry, thank you Scuba Adventures Plano!!!

I can’t say enough about the excellent experience we had with the team at Scuba Adventures. My son started the Junior Open Water Scuba Diver course 2 years ago, and we decided it best to have him retake the course when he turned 12 years old. This past weekend, he and I completed our certification programs together marking a very memorable time for us. Everyone who engaged us during this process (Brent, Autumn, Tom, Preston, and Blake) was extremely professional, caring, and fun! We achieved a thorough understanding and appreciation for the sport of scuba diving. The coaching and guidance received allowed us to feel comfortable in the school pool and the lake at Scuba Ranch. The process from sign-up to completion was streamlined and organized, leaving no ambiguity or concern. Our instructor and divemaster were very encouraging, honest, and patient. Not only were we ecstatic on certification day, but we also felt bonded with the team, our classmates, and the scuba school. We look forward to learning additional skills and exploring underwater sites with this terrific group of divers!

Scuba Adventures is a fantastic business. Last month, my girlfriend and I signed up to get open water certified in preparation for an upcoming vacation. The open water certification involved two days of pool work and two days of diving at the Scuba Ranch lake. After our first day of pool work, my girlfriend experienced vertigo while ascending and we thought we’d have to ditch our plan to get certified. However, Scuba Adventures was incredibly accommodating and invited us back for both an extra class the following weekend and a private lesson after we still had issues. The instructors were all professional and knowledgeable and gave us a lot of advice both about diving and the vertigo issue. When we finished the pool work, we had a great time finishing up at the lake. Special thanks to Zach, who Scuba Adventures arranged as a private guide for us in the lake. Thank you to Brent and everyone at Scuba Adventures!

This is one of our favorite places to go in Plano Texas. The water is warm and clear. the pool is 18 feet deep and as far as I can tell the deepest pool in the area. The people there are friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. We have been going there for 4 years and we love it! We have several videos on YouTube of that place. Just look up Scuba adventures under “Elizabeth Swims”.

My two sons (11 yr and 13 yr) are certified with Scuba Adventure. They had a wonderful time both in classroom and in water. Instructor Rusty is very nice, patient and knowledgeable. Besides diving skills, he also taught them about how to be a good diver to protect the environment, which I believe all divers should learn. Other dive guides are also very friendly and patient. We appreciate it.

Great shop! I highly recommend Ken Barkhuff as an instructor. I had some major anxiety about scuba diving, but after a one-on-one session with Ken, I am confident and ready. Ken’s approach to scuba diving is empowering. He taught me the tools to feel confident and was understanding and kind. This guy has worked with all levels of divers and is constantly gaining new certifications to keep up with the industry. For up-to-date scuba instruction that works, use Ken.

We went to multiple other shops in the area trying to find certification classes that worked with our schedule before finding Scuba Adventures. Little did we know we would find our scuba home.

First time we walked in Autumn was so informative and easy going. Right away we could tell the atmosphere and culture was different in a good way. She was able to find my husband a time to do his refresher, and me to get my open water certification. Later on she also set up mermaid and scuba discovery class for our kids. Our schedule is a little busy so having flexibility in scheduling was just what we needed.

I did my pool work with Rusty as my instructor. He was awesome. Spent extra time with me to make sure I had my skills down and performed them safely before going to the lake. Even when I got frustrated with myself he kept his cool and was extremely patient with me. Both my husband and myself loved how fun the washer game was.

At the lake Ken was my instructor. Again another awesome instructor. The quality of instruction was the same across the board with all the instructors. Ken made it fun and relaxing while making it a safe dive for everyone everytime. Left feeling super confident and ready for some 80/80 dives. The dive masters were awesome too and willing to answer any questions.

Our girls loved mermaid discovery class. Even when dad joined in to try and tried to embarrass them. You turned my fish into mermaids.

Looking forward to more classes and many, many, many, many more dives with Scuba Adventures. Our family’s scuba home.

I can not say enough great things about this place! The staff that was part of my certification team was beyond patient, knowledgeable and most importantly took the time with each student to make sure we were comfortable with the skills we had covered! Ken Barkuff was the instructor I was fortunate enough to have along with Dive Masters John Worthen, and Paul Richmond! These 3 men will help you succeed, they will have faith in you that you do not have in yourself! They listened intently to all my concerns and talked me through ALL of my fears and doubt I had in myself, they would not allow me to fail! If I failed I bet it would have hurt them just as bad as myself! I felt part of this dive family from the first time I walked in the door! In my opinion Scuba Adventures, in Plano TX is much more than just a dive shop! So if you are getting certified or renewal or anything else and want to be surrounded by professionals that respect your concerns, time, and want you to succeed, this is the place for you!! Remarkable service from EVERYONE I came in contact with from front end employees, Technicians, instructors, Dive Masters, owner operator to the people that are part of that Scuba family!

I can’t say enough about how blessed we are to have found this place! EVERYONE is so friendly and will answer ALL your questions and will help you in every way! My 13 year old daughter finished her scuba pool skills this weekend with her instructors Ken (love him!) and Preston. I can not express my gratitude for making Kaylie feel so at ease. She would never say it (Army brats don’t complain and just get it done) but she was nervous about everything but mainly mask clearing. Ken had her do it so many times that by the time she left Sunday she was so proud of herself. She had a blast when he made them take them off and search the wall with out their mask to get them use to not having a mask. Kaylie’s dad is military so Kaylie said it was just like her dad was teaching the class and she felt right at home. Ken and Preston are amazing! Ken makes sure you understand EVERY aspect that will keep you diving safely. I don’t know the other dive masters yet but I’m grateful Ken was there to teach/train my daughter to take it seriously and safely so that she can have the most fun. After Sunday she was so at ease with diving that she decided to finish her open water certification dives here at Scuba Ranch instead of Cozumel so that she can just have a blast diving in Cozumel. That says it all. Thank you Ken and Preston!

Nothing but great things to say about this shop!
Very voice-of-the-customer driven; always willing to go above and beyond.

Great selection of on hand inventory and quick turnaround when they need to order additional inventory to meet a customer’s needs.

Assisted me in getting my new Halcyon BPW for my doubles ordered and customized and goodness what a fast delivery!

Recently took the Edge/Hog Equipment Repair Clinic and the instructors were so careful and detailed oriented test took the time for a new girl to equipment repair to ensure understanding- the step by step written instruction + visuals + in person caring instruction is top notch!

Not focused on bottom line only, but rather focused on the customer experience- something rare in this Industry today!

Highly recommend this shop to everyone!

Was looking for carbon fiber tanks as they are lighter than regular scuba tanks. The plan was to get my own air supply. I realize this is heading in the direction of my own private HAZMAT suit. Sadly they didn’t have any.
The Best Scuba shop in North Dallas by far! Scuba Adventures Plano has their own on-site 18′ training pool too. They are a 5-Star SDI/TDI facility (better than PADI in my humble opinion). They are a Halcyon dealer for us DIR divers and they have a good inventory of high-end gear.

Scott did an excellent job coordinating the event and we were so appreciative of the efforts made to provide masks, hand sanitizer, and emphasis on social distance (all while having fun, of course). I can’t wait to connect with this group again!

They are more than willing to answer all of my questions, some over and over. Show and explain every item in detail with its benefits. The staff, instructors, owners, all are amazing and you get to listen to their stories of experience. Their attentiveness and inclusion, I believe helped my daughter gain a deeper desire to be a diver and I get to experience that with her. Thank you to everyone at Scuba Adventures.

We signed up for our Open Water training through Scuba Adventures. We were there on 07/22/2020 to buy our initial gear (which they have an awesome selection to choose from) for the training. Mike (store manager) was extremely helpful, as was Autumn. The level of customer service, knowledge and friendliness is second to none. I definitely understand and can attest to why this shop has such a high rating.If you’re on the fence about scuba, you can do the Discover Scuba that they offer, as we did. Rusty, one of their experienced instructors, showed us the ins and outs of scuba and we got to dive in their 18 foot deep, indoor, heated, swimming pool! (yep, the pool is awesome!).I’ve also chatted with Scott, one of the store owners. He was very responsive, engaging and helpful.We can’t wait to get certified and to call Scuba Adventures our new dive home!!!

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.

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.

I have been going here for my hydro inspection and recently had a hick-up in the process. I dropped my tanks off in Feb at the Open House day. Got my receipt and then forgot about them, a month later I called and the shop said that they could not find my tanks but I could get a couple of rental tanks till they found them. Well the tanks could not be located but the owner Brent said he would replace them with a pair of new Catalina tanks in any color I choose. So all ended well thanks to a outstanding scuba shop. They have my loyalty and thanks.

My wife and I certified through Scuba Adventures (Adventure Scuba) in Plano in 2011. My kids got their certification today with Scuba Adventures. Over the past 9-10 years we have had such great advice,service,training, gear etc. from this team. Mike, Scott, Tom, Brent, and Richard (to name a few) are great guys and a lot of fun to learn from and hang out with between dives. They will always have our business.

Super nice people, Brent, Scott, and Mike! They remember you even after only coming in once. Everyone who works there is very knowledgeable and will help you with anything you have questions about. I took the open water certification with my 13 year old daughter with Tom. The instructors were so patient with us, since I needed extra time getting comfortable clearing my mask. I highly recommend signing up with them!

Very friendly and professional staff and owners. They are doing a lot of work to improve the facilities not only in the shop, but also at Terrell Scuba Ranch. In this slow time (Corona virus), my family will be taking enough specially classes online to get Advanced Certification once Texas backs off the Shelter In Place.

Just finished my daughter’s certification today. With all the options we had, we are very happy that we chose Adventure Scuba. The instructors were great. The communication was very good. We always knew where to be, when to be there, and what we needed to bring. She finished the course confident in her new skills. We will recommend Adventure Scuba to others for sure!

The staff at Adventure Scuba are very knowledgeable and helpful. I got my OW cert in 2001 but haven’t been diving in almost 10 years so I decided to take a Scuba Review course at Adventure Scuba last week. The dive master, Dave who taught the course was awesome! He reviewed all the basics and worked individually with each of four students address individual needs and concerns. He exceeded my expectations and I feel more confident for my upcoming dive trip.

My amazing wife set myself and a friend up for Mermaid School at this location for my birthday this past Sunday. There was a snafu and somehow we weren’t on the schedule. Katie & Keith two of the coaches showed up for a photo shoot – so they thought! They ended up doing the class for us on their day off and made my birthday crazy special!!! I had the time of my life and can not WAIT to return for Mermaid swims! Katie aka Mermaid Eirawen was a mermazing instructor and Keith took the most incredible pics and video for me!
It was a roller coaster being excited to go (it was a surprise that was set up for a month and I found out on the way) to being near tears and trying to decide where to go when we thought we were going to have to find something else to do; when the two lovelies showed up and literally gave me THE BEST birthday EVER!!!!! The pool was clean and a nice temp and the deep end leaves plenty of room to practice. Our safety was always the #1 concern, Fun was a close second. If you ever thought or dreamed of being a mermaid I HIGHLY recommend their class! I’m going to get my own fluke!!!!
PS: I have a bad back and this class not only didn’t hurt me…it made my back feel better! Thanks for everything! I’ll be back soon for more mermaid Swag too!!!!! Stickers, keychains, etc! ��

Adventure Scuba is the second home you go to where all your problems melt away the second you walk through the doors or step in the water. The Mermaid program by Moira Dobbs shows you the ins and outs of complete water safety, monofin safety, swimming with a mermaid tail, beginner to advanced tricks and so much more! I highly recommend everyone take this opportunity to learn scuba diving AND mermaid swimming!

Had a scuba birthday for my 12 year old son and 6 of his friends! It was amazing!! They had the party room all set up and decorated when we arrived and they were great with the kids in the pool. They were very patient and explained everything very well to the kids and made sure they were all comfortable before moving on. It was an amazing experience they will never forget. Rick Ely was awesome! Can’t thank him enough!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.
