Scuba Certification and Scuba Diving in Dallas

Scuba Adventures is your one-stop shop for scuba certification, refresher courses, top-of-the-line gear and service, equipment rentals and world-class dive vacations with Dallas scuba diving experts. Whether you’re just getting your feet wet or you’re a seasoned C-card holder, Scuba Adventures has everything you need to get the most out of your underwater experiences. We’re a 5-star-rated Scuba Diving International/Tech Diving International facility, and we have the deepest pool in the entire DFW Metroplex. That means you don’t have to live near the water to earn your scuba certification – and you can take the knowledge you gain here on exciting aquatic adventures anywhere in the world!

Scuba Diving in Dallas

Spending time underwater is always an adventure, and Scuba Adventures has something for everyone. Scuba diving, snorkeling, we have it all in our own 18-foot, heated pool. You can get an intro to scuba, become certified, take an advanced diver or rescue diver course, or brush up on your skills if it’s been a while since your last dive. And when you’re ready, we’d love to invite you on one of our local or overseas dive trips!

Ready to Get Your Scuba Certification in Dallas?

If you’re ready to test the waters and find out how much you’ll love scuba diving, check out our Scuba Discovery Program. You’ll get an inside look at what divers experience and learn about basic safety, buoyancy control, underwater communication and more. You’ll even get an underwater tour. If you’re ready to dive right in without an introductory course, you’ll love our:

  • SDI Open Water Scuba Diver Course. This course includes learning all the academic information you need – including basic underwater safety – and in-water skill development training. When you complete the SDI Open Water Scuba Diver Course in Dallas, you’ll earn your certification and be certified to dive up to 60ft all over the world. After you’re open water certified, you might be interested in:
  • Advanced Scuba Diver Certification. This course covers four complete SDI, TDI or ERDI specialty courses, such as Deep, Navigation, Photo, Intro to Tech and others. It’s also a prerequisite for the SDI Rescue Diver Course.
  • SDI Rescue Diver Certification. During the SDI Rescue course, you’ll learn the skills necessary to perform diver rescues, as well as assist and administer first aid. You’ll learn self-rescues, buddy rescues, how to recognize and calm panicked divers, conduct effective search patterns and manage accident scenes.

Why Should You Get Certified to Scuba Dive in Dallas?

Getting your scuba certifications locally is simple, and for most people, it’s the most sensible choice. When you get your scuba certification right here at home, you can spend your vacation time actually diving rather than in a classroom. You’ll also have plenty of time to get it right; you won’t feel pressured to rush through a class to avoid missing out on your vacation. You can get scuba-certified in Dallas and take your C-card with you on your trip – and then you can dive right in.

Already Certified? Check Out Our Scuba Refresher

If it’s been a while since your last dive, it’s always a good idea to get back into the water with trained professionals coaching you through – and that’s what our Inactive Diver/Refresher Diver course is all about. You’ll be able to get back into unsupervised diving safely when you finish this refresher course.

So who needs a scuba refresher course? Generally:

  • Anyone who hasn’t completed a dive within the past 6 months to a year
  • People who are going on vacation and planning to dive
  • Those who get nervous about putting together gear


It never hurts to freshen up your skills and get the latest new information available, so if you’re already certified and want to get back into it, we’re here for you.

Specialty Scuba Courses

Once you’re open-water certified you can get a specialty diving certificate in one of many focus areas, such as:

While you don’t have to pursue any advanced diver certification, these are a handful of the options open to you. Remember, too, that you can’t go beyond the depth limit you were trained on when you’re out in the water – doing so could put you and others at serious risk.

Boy Scout Scuba Diving Merit Badges for Dallas Scouts

We help Boy Scouts in Dallas earn the Scuba Diving Merit Badge and more. In fact, we can teach what Scouts need to know to earn the Swimming Merit Badge and the First Aid Merit Badge, too – all in our indoor, heated swimming pool and comfortable, state-of-the-art classroom. Even better: We an help your Boy Scout Troop raise money through our Boy Scout Fundraising Program.

Scuba Gear: Dallas’s One-Stop Shop

Scuba Adventures has a full retail shop that has everything you need to dive safely – and while looking your best. (Check out some of our inventory at our Dallas scuba diving store.) You’ll find BCDs, bags, boots, face masks, lights and complete scuba gear packages at extremely competitive prices.

Scuba Diving Equipment Servicing in Dallas

Scuba equipment needs regular service to keep you safe in the water. Our on-staff technicians can work with all major brands, including Mares, Oceanic, Atomic, Poseidon Diving Systems and more. We’ll help you take care of your equipment so it can take care of you.

Scuba Equipment Rental

We always recommend regular divers to eventually own their own gear. You get to know and trust your gear better. But until you make this investment, we have top-of-the-line rental gear for a great rate. We wouldn’t rent you anything we wouldn’t dive in ourselves.

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.
