Get Your Passport To The Underwater World with Dip 'N Dive!

Thank you for choosing Dip ‘N Dive as your shop of choice to train you and your family on how to Scuba Dive!  At Dip ‘N Dive, we have the best price in WNY because we believe that a Scuba Diving Certification course should be affordable for everyone, so that as many people that want to become a Scuba Diver, can become Scuba Diver.  We all have budgets, especially families, college students, etc.  It can be quite the expense for a family of 4 to go through the Scuba Diving Certification Course at the same time.  So we've taken away that obstacle and made it easier for everyone!

Why choose Dip 'N Dive?

You may see price matching “gimmicks” from some of the “other guys”, but why?  Why is it if you’re a consumer and you’ve done your due diligence by calling around, then and only then they’ll offer you a lower price?  But if you don’t call around (because of time or class locations & availability) that they’ll charge you a higher price?  Well, that’s not right and at Dip ‘N Dive you won’t receive that kind of unethical treatment!  If the “other guys” treat you like that, what else are they doing once they have your money?

Now, the “other guys” will insist that since we’re charging less, that we must be giving less. They'd be 100% wrong!  You’ll get nothing but the best with our Scuba Diving Certification Course that we’ve been offering for over 40+ years here in WNY. Regardless of the “other guys” claim, we’re the longest active Dive Shop here in WNY and that’s due in part to our outstanding training programs and our commitment to you, the diver to provide the best education and training.  We’ve been in business since 1976 and chances are that we’ve trained someone that you know!

Ask other Scuba Divers that you know who they’d trust to teach a "Loved One” to Scuba Dive and you’ll get the same answer…Dip ‘N Dive!

Come to Dip 'N Dive to get "Your Passport To The Underwater World!"

About 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.
