DIPNDIVE's Scuba Diving Certification Course Benefits

  • Affordable Pricing. At DIPNDIVE, we have the best price in WNY because we believe that a Scuba Diving Certification course should be affordable for everyone. We all have budgets, especially families, college students, etc. It can be quite an 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!
  • "Group Rate" Discounts. If you have 4 or more in your group (friends or family), then please call (716-837-3483) and speak to us about a discount. Active/Retired (Veteran) Military, Law Enforcement & First Responders ALSO get a discount!
  • No Additional Fees. Most other dive shops will charge you an additional fee should you need more time academically or in the pool. Due to the fact that everyone learns at a different pace, we don't feel it's right to charge you more money because you may have a different learning curve.
  • No Hidden Costs. You will be informed of all the possible costs ahead of time.
  • The Largest and Most Experienced Staff of Diving Professionals (Instructors & Divemasters) in WNY.
  • Flexible Scheduling. For those who have active lifestyles, private lessons are available! We also train at multiple locations across WNY.

* The Fine Print: Once the course starts, we'll be unable to refund any course fees as these fees are paid prior to the class starting.
