Learn to Scuba Dive with Dip 'N Dive


Dip 'N Dive opened in 1976 and is the longest active dive shop here in WNY! We have an impeccable safety record here at Dip 'N Dive and our Instructors and Divemasters have well over 100+ years of experience. We've trained 10's of Thousands of diver's here in WNY!

One of the phases to Scuba Diving Certification is having students learn academic's and we believe that most informative and safest way to learn is being face to face in front of your instructor while being taught in a classroom type setting. There are some dive shops that shove you off and have you do your academics online (which will also force you spend additional money to buy study kits). We believe that is WRONG! Why should you have to spend extra money to get the same education? shouldn't.

Taught in conjunction with NAUI (The National Association of Underwater Instructors) and PADI (The Professional Association of Diving Instructors). NAUI and PADI are the two biggest SCUBA training agencies in the world. We believe teaching at the highest standards possible, which is why people will send their family and friends to us to become SCUBA certified. Consider this when making your decision to get certified!

While many dive shops have come & gone over the years, we remain "The Leader in Diving Education" here in WNY! We are the best because we do it right! We teach at numerous locations throughout WNY for your convenience, while maintaining the highest standards of safety and professionalism.


Due to Canadian Regulations, we're unable to train/certify Canadian residents. We apologize for any inconvenience.
