Who We Are

Bubbles or Not

Bubbles or Not Diving is located in the heart of historic downtown Harlem, Georgia. Its founder, U.S. Army Veteran Bob Bennett, and his wife Rose, longed to share their 25 years of experience and passion for diving with the public. Together, they created a family-oriented dive shop focused on introducing people to the joys and wonders of SCUBA. 

Five years after opening their doors, Bob was suddenly and unexpectedly taken from us. His passing left an enormous void in the diving community. Rose, who had always supported her husband and embraced Bob’s vision of educating the next generation of divers and instructors, decided to honor her husband by keeping his dream alive. Bob’s memory fuels Rose to maintain his legacy and to elevate Bubbles or Not to a whole new level.

Rose and Bob

At Bubbles or Not Diving, our dedication to providing quality training and education is evident. We pride ourselves on helping ordinary people become safe, skilled, and aware divers. We love bringing the thrill of the underwater world to new explorers. But, it’s more than just diving; it’s about building a dive community, a place where family members can create lifelong memories together, and a stranger can become a new friend. It’s about promoting a healthy mental and physical lifestyle enabling divers to enjoy all of the adventures that await. And of course, it’s about protecting the beautiful but fragile environment for the next generation.

Are you that person who is ready to learn to dive? Have you always wanted to see beneath the surface of Lake Thurmond or dreamed of traveling to a warm, tropical island to experience the vibrance of coral reefs? Are you that adventurer seeking out cavern diving in Central Florida? If so, Bubbles or Not is the dive shop you and your friends can call home.
