Had a blast, Dave is an amazing instructor with the patience of Job. Kept us all on track, made it fun and looking forward to taking more courses with Scuba Adventures.
One great experience for something I have wanted to do my whole life! Dave was incredible with the patience of Jobe. The shop is knowledgeable and willing to help and explain it all.
Response from the owner: Congratulations Stephen! It’s relatively easy to check off a massive dream for most people! We think if people realized that learning to scuba dive was as accessible in the Dallas metroplex, even more people than were already diving, would jump in asap. We’re getting the word out with help from friends like you! Remember to come fun scuba dive with us at the ranch on the weekends. There are still more hidden underwater gems to find there and it helps keep your skills amazingly current! Sea you soon!
Our family loves Scuba Adventures! My son got his Open Water Certification with them. I also sent our crew of 16 scouts and scouters to get their snorkeling gear here as well. They had the best equipment at Sea Base. Hoping to send more Scouts here for their Scuba Certification and Scuba Merit Badge!
Response from the owner: Wow! This made our day Mike thank you. Their snorkeling gear will last a surprisingly long time if they keep it inside and not in the attic. Heat wreaks havoc on dive gear. Plus, they need to keep it handy so they can dive! Thank you for referring others our way. Also remember that you can bring the boys to The Scuba Ranch with us and they can either snorkel or scuba dive. A great summertime activity! Thanks again!
Great instructors in a great adventure. Thank you so much
Response from the owner: Thank you Rama! Can’t wait to hear all about your future Scuba Adventures. Make certain to bring a shop flag with you on your trips! We have a ton.
Out of diving for 15 years, we signed up with Scuba Adventures for a refresher course. Derrick did an amazing job and love the program Scuba Adventures put together. Derrick made us put our gear together, disassemble it, reassemble it and check for problems. We hopped into the pool, worked through mask issues, buddy breathing… and stayed 45 minutes late to get through all the information he wanted to share. I could rattle on but what a great place we have here in Plano.
Response from the owner: Three cheers for Trey🙌. The scuba refresher class is a great one. It’s organized but relaxed. And using the 16ft pool, you can get back in the flow of things quickly. Everyone should be like Trey and invest in a refresher class if they have been out of the water for an extended period of time. Scuba is a sport whose skills deteriorate when not used. Smart divers, like Trey, take advantage of refreshers.
Great community for learning and continuing education in scuba. I have been a part of multiple scuba shops in the past but none have provided the welcoming community of Scuba Adventures.
Response from the owner: That’s incredible top hear, Mitchell thank you for sharing. It’s exactly what we were shooting for when the shop opened. We want a shop that is very family friendly, allows females to thrive and advance in their learning/diving, feels like home regardless of race/sex, or even if you’re not a born texan🤣. You found your people Mitchell. Now let’s go diving!
My wife & I got our open water/ Nitrox certifications from Scuba Adventures, we went in before class to purchase our personal equipment (masks, snorkels, fins etc.) the staff was incredibly helpful in explaining the differences between brands, helping us getting our sizing for fins and it was honestly the best customer service experience we’ve had in a very long time. When it was time to dive for class Brent & Derek were our confined water instructors and they were extremely diligent in making sure whatever questions the class had were answered, making sure whatever skills we needed to improve on or we did correctly they supported where needed, and celebrated the wins with us! For our open water classes we had quite a few instructors diving with us, Zack, Elon & Tim and it was an incredible experience! As new divers we were excited & nervous about our first dive, but the scuba adventures team went out of their way to make sure we had all the information we needed to have a safe and fun experience throughout the whole weekend! Zack even stayed behind after we were officially certified to dive with me again at my request!!Throughout the certification process the Scuba Adventures instructors/dive shop have very quickly became family to us! They will have our business always!! Thank you all for such an amazing experience!
Response from the owner: This review is so incredible Trace, thank you. We appreciate pointing out so many members of the team (retail, instructors, DiveMasters, and support staff. We’re excited to have you and your wife as part of our dive family. It sounds like we are all going to be a good fit 🙌. And thank you for saying the experience was some of the best customer service you’ve experienced in a long time! We love it when everything comes together for the benefit of the students. We hope you’ll enjoy scuba for many decades to come! Sea you out there. 🐠Come fun dive with us anytime at The Scuba Ranch. We’re out at our pavilion every weekend🔥
I had an awesome experience at Scuba Plano. I took a private refresher course since I hadn’t been diving in awhile and Leora was awesome. She went over everything I needed to know and made sure I was ready to dive again. Sarah spent extra time with me going over my gear to make sure everything was still in good shape and helped me upgrade some of my items. I highly recommend this place.
Response from the owner: Thank you Wendy! We appreciate the shout out to Sarah and Leora. We love them like crazy and they are favorites of our followers and students. They will be thrilled to hear about this review. And we certainly appreciate you mentioning that they were patient, kind and helpful. That’s what we strive for and it comes easy to those two! We hope to sea you soon🐠🔱
Absolutely fantastic experience with a Scuba Adventures! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They made the entire process smooth and enjoyable.The open water scuba certification class was exceptional. The instructors(Tom, Elon, Stanley) were incredibly patient, professional, and passionate about diving. They ensured everyone felt comfortable and confident in the water. The small class sizes allowed for personalized attention, and the hands-on training was thorough and engaging.I can’t recommend Scuba Adventures enough for anyone looking to get certified or just wanting a fantastic diving experience. A five-star experience from start to finish!
Response from the owner: Snehansh the scuba diver 🏆. You were fantastic and we are proud you chose us. We hope you will fun dive with us at the lake to keep your skills fresh. Maybe sign up for a trip. You’re the best. Thank you!
Tom, Elon, Stanley, and everyone else were great instructors. I’ll definitely use Scuba Adventures for my next classes as well!
Response from the owner: Thank you Timothy! Tom, Elon and Stanley will all be pumped up to sea your review! 🐠. Come fun dive with us at the ranch this summer🔱.
I and two of my kids did the open water scuba certification classes through Scuba Adventures. We did this in April and May of 2024. The process was easy and straightforward! The email and phone communications were clear and timely. The instructors were terrific! I would highly recommend going to the pros at Scuba Adventures for your scuba training and gear needs.
Response from the owner: Thank you Scuba Scott! It’s the ultimate sign of trust when a parent allows us to teach and dive with their children. We have a huge base of young divers and we hope you and the kids have many more years of making dive memories all over the world. Sea you soon! 🐟
I really can’t say enough to state how wonderful of an experience I have every time I interact with Scuba Adventures. I’ve taken 6 courses with them over the past 2 years with my Son. Autumn and Sarah who work the front desk really are special and make me feel like family every time we speak. The instructors I’ve dove with (Windal, Enrique, Elon, Dave, Leora, Shug, Preston, and Brent) all have a penchant for safety, yet still make it exciting and fun. I’ve always felt incredibly safe every time I’ve been underwater with them. The owner, Brent, has done an exceptional job of filling his roster with staff that are enjoyable to be around and learn from. I send everyone I know to them for this reason.
Response from the owner: We’re blushing 😊! Andrew what an incredibly kind review! And we appreciate the detail because so many people rely of reviews to decide who to train and dive with. Autumn and Sarah will be thrilled to read this thank you. Autumn was just certified as an instructor as well. Sarah already had hers. They are both fan favorites in the store and at the lake. It should also be said that we greatly appreciate your son trusting us with his diving!!♥️
Awesome place awesome teachers. They help you all the way through.
Response from the owner: Thank you Brasco! From picking out your mask fins boots and snorkel, all the way through class and certification. We got you👊🏼. Plus make sure you join our private FB group where most of the locals from the shop communicate weekly. Sea you soon!
I enjoyed taking the open water course. The instructors worked with me and helped me over come challenges. Nice and clean store, pool, and class room. Would recommend.
Response from the owner: Thank you Patrick! The world is your canvas now! Enjoy diving all over the planet! We appreciate you 🔥
I completed the open water course today and had a fantastic experience! I got certified so that I could join my Boy Scout son in Florida this summer. My son took the class from Scuba Adventures previously and has already been diving. He learned so well that he wants me to go and for us to have a lifelong passion together while mom hangs at the beach! Scuba Adventures techniques are to promote the positive while training everyone to be comfortable with how to handle gear, support your buddy, and of course know what to do in tricky or emergency situations. There were some parts that were challenging but all the instructors – Tom, Bonnie, Brent and Paul were patient, kind and fun to work with which made things easy! I now have a lifelong skill that I can use with my son or anyone that wants to go and have fun while seeing an amazing underwater world. I highly recommend Scuba Adventures!
Response from the owner: You were in San Marcos!!! What a great picture! Bet you had a great training session in that clear water 🙌
I got my certification here. It was the most professional well prepared well taught course. I have no complaints. They told me everything upfront. Dave, you are a great instructor. Keep on teaching. I love the owner and Everyone at Scuba Adventure 🫵🏼✊🏼🤿Keep up the good business. 🤙🏼
Response from the owner: Thank you Collin! I wish everyone considering taking scuba could read your comments because who the instructor is = HUGE💯. Not only are our instructors superb, they understand the need to encourage and respect all students. Regardless of race, sex, or any geo demographics.
I had the most incredible day at Scuba Adventures in Plano, Tx! Taking their scuba discovery class was an absolute blast! Breathing underwater for the first time was beyond cool – it felt like diving into a whole new world of wonder.Brent and Autumn were fantastic, guiding us through every step with patience and enthusiasm. Learning how to clear my mask and mastering the art of descending and ascending in their 16ft heated pool was both thrilling and empowering.I can’t thank the team at Scuba Adventures enough for such an unforgettable experience. It’s definitely a day I’ll cherish forever. Highly recommend to anyone looking to dive into the underwater world!
Response from the owner: Hayden thanks for giving scuba a try! We think you have what it takes to be a fine diver💯. When the water warms up think about signing up for the full certification!
My first interaction with Scuba Adventure was getting them to do my annual equipment maintenance. The service was outstanding, and the staff was very friendly. I recently completed the Advanced Buoyancy Diver course. The experience was amazing! David Filas was the instructor. He presented the material in a clear way during the classroom session and taught the techniques with practical methods during the heated pool work. Highly recommend the course!
Response from the owner: We appreciate the detailed review Robert. And congrats on keep your dive gear serviced regularly. It’s wise to keep it in top shape! And glad you enjoyed the advanced buoyancy class. Our pool is perfect for it and it’s a skill you can use on every dive. Maybe the most useful course we teach! Sea you soon! 🐟🐠🦈
I did open water certification up to the open water dives, and then got a referral to finish on a vacation I was doing shortly after. I really enjoyed SDI elearning. It is very user friendly and well written. I felt overly prepared in knowledge before suiting up in the pool. After the confined water skills at Scuba Adventures, my dive instructor in Honduras was very impressed with my abilities right out of training, a testament to the quality of the training program at Scuba Adventures. I look forward to doing more specialties and certificates with this shop in the future.
Response from the owner: Yay we love it when our students travel and get compliments from other instructors and dive masters🫶. We’re proud to have you as part of our dive family.
Took the Discover Scuba course as part of a team event for work. Had never had much interest in scuba prior to the course, but after taking it, a lot of my team (myself included) are interested in becoming fully certified!The experience was so much fun from start to finish. Brent and Autumn were awesome instructors, and made the course extremely educational but so much fun at the same time. I’m really looking forward to going back for more advanced courses!
Response from the owner: Congrats Luc! Few people get to experience the super power of breathing underwater🚀. Sea you out here soon!
Scuba Adventures in Plano is the place to be!! My coworkers and I did a Discover Scuba class led by Brent and Autumn and had so much fun. Definitely will be returning to get my scuba certification! Shoutout to Scott Berry at the Dive shop for setting the whole thing up and for always going the extra mile for each customer! 5/5 stars- I wish I could give more!
Response from the owner: You’re da bestest!!!! Can’t wait to see you certified and diving in Mexico!
I’m not a social media or reviewer-type guy, but I just felt a positive review was warranted in this case. We just finished the Hogarthian 1 training class with SCUBA Adventures Plano. Brent was an excellent comprehensive and patient instructor and we learned SO much more than we were expecting or thought we paid for! The Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) learning path is an intriguing one and we can’t wait to practice and develop our skills. Scuba Adventures Plano will be our choice for instruction the whole way.
Response from the owner: Oh man🏆! You’re the best Jeff. Thank you for taking the time to document your experience with the dive shop and with Brent. He’s an owner, instructor and scuba fanatic and will enjoy seeing your review! Go the GUE way🎯
I wish I could give Scuba Adventures (“SA”) in Plano more than 5 stars. I completed my dive certification and SA was such a great place, from the great facilities to the professional staff. SA stressed safety and skill training. I especially enjoyed our open water session with Sarah and Vince who were not only friendly and patient with us, but were both so professional. You could tell they wanted each of us to have the necessary skills to complete a recreational dive in a safe manner. All the other students felt the same way. I am recommending SA to my son and his girlfriend to get certified at the SA facility. I am unable to think of a single complaint. Thank you again to all the staff, especially Sarah, Vince and Tom. Thank you for a wonderful safe open water weekend!! Andy
Response from the owner: What a beautiful review 🥰. Sarah is amazing. Always has a cheerful smile and an encouraging word for students in training. She’s also a beast inside the retailCenter. Proud of you for setting a tough goal and achieving full certification. Now get ready to dive the world!!!
Great dive shop. Vince is an amazing instructor. Highly recommend using Scuba Adventure for your certification.
Response from the owner: Yay Vince! We will tell him about your review! Thank you for investing the time to recognize our team. It means the world to know that we are making great and fulfilled divers. Congrats Jennifer!
Great group of people from the instructors to the employees. Great knowledge of products
Response from the owner: Thank you Randy! We know it takes time to get google ratings and reviews up for your favorite businesses, but it really helps new divers find the right dive shop! You’re the best🏆🤿
The friendliest, most professional and helpful scuba shop I have visited. The sales and support teams are extremely helpful and know-ledged. Had my Halcyon BCD donut wing bladder replaced here. The indoor pool is also 15″ feet deep and is warm.Highly recommended for equipment sales, support and diving certifications. A+++
Response from the owner: Thank you Kevin! We love being known and friendly and professional! Sea you soon!
Awesome service and very helpful and friendly staff
Response from the owner: Thanks Jay!
I recently completed my Nitrox certification with this shop. The professionalism and expertise of the staff are truly commendable. Sarah made the registration process a breeze with her amazing assistance, and Barry, my instructor, deserves a shout-out for his exceptional patience and thoroughness in covering the training material. Huge thanks to the entire team for providing such an amazing and pleasant learning experience. I can not wait to complete the Rescue Diver certification with them soon—thank you guys!!!
Response from the owner: Jessica we would LOVE to teach you Rescue once the water warms up! Also we will tell Sarah and Barry how much you appreciated their help!
We registered for BSA Merit Badges (Swimming & Life saving). The instructor was very professional, experienced and friendly.
Response from the owner: Thanks Jhansi! We’ve been working with scouts for years and hope that many become great swimmers and scuba divers later in life!
The wife and myself had decided to get our open water certification, after looking into everything we decided we needed to get our personal gear. ( location we are doing class said they would supply gear). After talking with Autumn and Abigail, we were certain we made the correct choice in dive shops. We changed our mind some many times on items, they even let us try out our gear in the pool. After many hours we finally decided on what we liked the best. Everyone was so unbelievably helpful. Explained what each piece should feel like and fit. Very grateful for all the help and professionalism. The only regret we have is that we didn’t do our class and certification with them. The best part is we are just starting, so in the future we will definitely be doing classes with them. Thank you so much again.
Response from the owner: Awe, what an incredible review. Thank you Wally! No worries about not getting your initial training with us. We’re all about creating successful and adventuresome divers. And maybe a few dive fanatics along the way😂. You’ve honored us becoming part of our dive family. Make sure to follow us on Facebook @scubaadventuresplano so we can go diving together! Sea you soon🐠🐟
Very helpful and knowledgeable for our first real purchase of scuba equipment
Response from the owner: Thanks Sara! Gear lasts for a long time so congrats on getting quality! Let’s go diving soon!
Very well organized and managed. We took the “Discover Scuba” training and the entire experience right from booking to the training was great. Barry, our coach for the training was awesome, a thorough professional. All in all, we highly recommend this place.
Response from the owner: Thank you for giving Scuba a Try and allowing our team to be the ones to introduce you. Barry loves teaching and we’re thrilled you enjoy the experience! You now have a super power! Breathing under water!!!!!!
It was such a wonderful experience!!! Barry is such a great scuba instructor. The entire setup of enrolling and taking the scuba discovery class was so smooth. I am going to go back for sure. Thanks Scuba Adventures Plano.
Response from the owner: Thank you for giving Scuba a try! We can’t wait to have you back! And we appreciate you trusting our staff to introduce you to the joys of scuba!
It was a great experience! They prioritize safety first and recognized my ears were not at an equilibrium. Even though we’re out of the state, we will be back when in town.
Response from the owner: Thank you for making the drive and hitting the pool with us! Safety first and then fun!
Loved our Scuba Discovery dive
Response from the owner: Yay Murali! You can breathe underwater! Make your friends call you aqua man from now on😂🤣. You earned it!
Fantastic experience at Balmorhea with Vince!
Response from the owner: Thank You Heather! It was exciting to go with you to Balmorhea and enjoy the clear spring water and comfortable temperatures! We appreciate you mentioning Vince and we will certainly let him know! Sea you soon!
Super awesome experience learning about diving and swimming! Can’t wait to sign up to be to be certified
Response from the owner: Yay Michael! Congrats on giving scuba a try! Life is short, so let’s go dive the oceans!
My 12 year old tried the discovery course and loved it! The classroom portion is done at home, which is nice for your own pace. There was a brief introduction and fitting when we showed up for the scheduled time, then straight in the pool! The instructors were encouraging but let everyone try at their own pace. 10/10 will return to try it myself.
Response from the owner: Come on Justin let’s do it!!! Scuba diving is great fun for the entire family. The discovery course is super fun even if you decide not to get certified. Something magical about breathing underwater for the first time.
Completed my basic open water certification through Scuba Adventures Plano. My dive instructors – Vince and Elon, and the crew helping – Enrique and Derrick, are all incredibly knowledgeable and create a wonderful environment to learn and overcome nerves/anxiety as well as to have fun. They take the time and care to assure that everyone’s questions are answered and that they are confident in attempting the skill being learned. They provided helpful feedback and it seemed that each student was able to proceed at their own pace (class was ages 11 to 40s).
Response from the owner: Michael, this is just the type of review we love to sea😍. Thank you for trusting us with your open water certification and for recognizing Vince, Elon, Enrique, and Derrick! You’ve said it better than we ever could have 🙌. Thank you and hope to dive with you again soon!
Great experience getting certified with amazing instructors: Windal, Bruce, Shug, and Derek. They made the experience fun and enjoyable.
Response from the owner: Yay John! Congratulations on getting certified⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! Our staff will be thrilled to see this review. They have such a huge passion for teaching and leading. We’re glad it shows through in their work! Come take a trip with us soon🐠
Very professional, great attitudes and SDI course is packed with great information about open water certifications
Response from the owner: We love the SDI content as well! Never seen anything quite like it. The education is astonishing when paired with our instructional staff! Christian, come dive with us soon and make sure you are following us on FB where we post everything!
Outstanding and professional group of fun loving divers.
Response from the owner: We are a fun group 🥳. We have a private FB group you can join simply by asking. It’s designed for our local divers who want to stay up on everything scuba adventures related and her first access to trips and specials! It’s our “dive squad” family! Please join!
We had the best time getting dive certified with David in the pool and Barry and Sarah for Open Water at the Scuba Ranch. I highly recommend them!!Everyone at the shop is incredibly helpful and super fun. Scheduling the class was easy and when we needed to change our open water weekend they were extremely accommodating. I would give them more than 5 Stars if I could
Response from the owner: We want all 6 stars Natalie!!! It’s going to be our goal now to provide 6 Star Service to our students 😂. The team works so hard to blow our students and dive family away so it’s thrilling to see we’ve done a great job. We will make sure Barry, Sarah, and David know how much you appreciated their leadership. Make sure to follow our list of upcoming dive trips so you can experience clear blue water for the first time🐠

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.
