Over the past few years, Scuba shops in Philadelphia have been on the decline. Some of the greatest shops in the city, such as the Diving Bell, have closed. Dave and Melissa felt the need to carry on the tradition of fun and excitement in the underwater world for the people of Philadelphia.
Please let us introduce you to the magic of SCUBA. There is plenty of local diving as well as diving a few hours drive away, and of course there is always diving in tropical destinations. You don’t need to be an Olympic swimmer and you don’t need to be wealthy to enjoy diving.
We supply recreational, technical, police/fire units, military and commercial markets with high quality gear. We offer a wide variety of classes, gear and spearguns to suit your needs. Stop by the shop, call or email us with any questions. We are here to help you with all of your diving needs!
Dog Friendly shop!
Dave Barnes is a proud member of Glaziers Local 252 and District Council 21. He is also a Welding Instructor with the School District of Philadelphia. He has been diving since 1995. Dave is the head instructor teaching Open water and Divemaster and every course in between. When he’s not diving, Dave also enjoys flying airplanes, watching the Phillies and Flyers and traveling.
Melissa Barnes has been diving since 2007. She is an architect during the day and moonlights as a Divemaster. She assists with classes and runs our Refresher course for rusty divers. Melissa also enjoys traveling, watching the Phillies and Flyers and playing softball and football when not in the water.
