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.
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!
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!
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.
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
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+++
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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
Wow….. just WOW! Awesome group of people. Very fun to be around as well as serious when it comes to safety while diving and understanding concepts behind emergency procedures and techniques involved with scuba diving. An awesome scuba family to be adopted into 🥰 🤙
David was amazing. We had an inactive diver refresher course before our trip to Hawaii and he did a wonderful job of getting us comfortable our equipment and skillsets back up to par. Now we feel confident and excited for our upcoming trip. Thanks David!
The divers at Scuba Adventures at Plano were professional, friendly and patient. They were fantastic with my 13 year old son, who was taking scuba lessons for the first time, and with me during my scuba refresher. We had an exceptional experience.
Had an incredible experience with Scuba Adventures! Top notch staff! Thank you Barry, Enrique and Preston for a great experience for my son to learn from the 3 of you! You all are the best! He is an official junior certified scuba diver today! We will definitely be back! Thank you!
After a four year hiatus from diving, I went back for a refresher and gear upgrade. Rusty was very thorough and made sure I was clear on my knowledge during the refresher and also helping me pick out my dive computer. Autumn spent a lot of time with me going through the details of the Halcyon BCD, she all but tore the BCD apart, her knowledge was impressive.If you are looking to get certified, new dive gear or service, I highly suggest you make Scuba Adventures your first stop.
These guys/gals are amazing. They absolutely love scuba and it shows. Their DM’s, Instructors, Asst. Instructors, and Staff want nothing more than to elevate your knowledge through positive education. Questions are highly encouraged because SAFETY is the most important factor. They truly want to make you a better diver! I just completed a refresher, and it was awesome. Time/money very well spent. I had objectives I wanted to achieve with regard to trim/buoyancy working with a new BC, and our instructor was SOLID!! Thank you!
I originally received my open water scuba certification from Scuba Adventures 16 years ago. I decided to go through the certification again with my daughter so we could enjoy this amazing hobby together. Brent, the owner, and our two instructors, Preston and Enrique were the best! They helped us with the purchase of our equipment and made me and my daughter feel very confident with the skills we learned together. We plan to add to our scuba certifications with Scuba Adventures as we gain experience. I would recommend Scuba Adventures of Plano to anyone new to diving or interested in adding to their scuba resume. 100% satisfied with our experience. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Highly recommend Scuba Adventures for your certification courses and rentals. Fun, thorough, and make you a confident, well trained, safe, and comfortable diver. We had our kids do their OW and Nitrox courses and worked with Leora, Brent, Dave, Bruce, and Barry. Had a stellar experience from beginning to end. Shoutout to Autumn who answered all of our questions and helped every step of the way.
I recommend Scuba Adventures Plano to anyone who is curious about learning more about Scuba. My fiance and I took this course to prepare for our honeymoon and I am so glad that we did. David and Bonnie were so supportive and helped me overcome any anxiety and hesitation I may have had. You can tell that every person at this shop has a passion for what they do!They truly go the extra mile! Ex. They connected my fiance and I with another diver that went to Thailand so we can get tips and suggestions from him. How great is that!
My niece Addison and I decided to get open water and Nitrox certified through Scuba Adventures in Plano. In the past, I would get resort certified while on vacation, but I’m tired of wasting nearly a day going through this process, so I decided to get certified, so I didn’t have to waste more of my future vacation time. When we signed up, Addison and I were fitted for equipment, and everybody at Scuba Adventures was very nice and patient with us. We were lucky to have David Blasingame and Bonnie Sanford. They were very organized and patient with everybody and made sure everybody in our class understood and could perform each skill before moving to the next skill. They were both very knowledgeable, and they made the class super fun! In previous dives (being resort certified), I was not adequately taught how to equalize my ears. I was also not taught how to be neutrally buoyant, so I was constantly flailing in the water and had no control. I feel comfortable descending at the same speed as my dive buddy and fellow divers, and I’m confident as an open water certified scuba diver. We did our open water dive at Scuba Ranch and met other instructors from Scuba Adventures who were all very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Scuba Adventures, and hopefully, you’ll be lucky to get David and Bonnie as your Dive instructors too.
Completed my open water certification today. What a great experience. The instructor and dive master were awesome. Very knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. Highly recommend this program and dive shop
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.

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!!!
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.
