DIVING Plan an Adventure

We understand completely. You’re a certified diver, and you simply cannot wait to get back in the water. At Bubbles or Not, one of our greatest joys is taking people diving. As a 5 Star PADI dive shop with 25 years of diving experience under our weight belts, we know a few folks and can make things happen.

Scuba Steve Dive

Many people envision tropical islands when they think of scuba diving. But to avid divers, any body of water gets their gears turning. We like to schedule local, national, and international adventures for our divers. We plan dives to fit any budget, interest, and skill level. Traveling and diving together builds our local dive community, creates friendships, and brings families closer together.
