Learn To Scuba Dive with DIPNDIVE!

DIPNDIVE's Scuba Diving Certification Course benefits:

Thank you for choosing DIPNDIVE as your shop of choice to train you and your family on how to Scuba Dive!

At DIPNDIVE, 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 do it. 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!

If you have 4 or more in your group (friends or family), then please call (716-837-3483) and speak to us about a "Group Rate" discount.

Active/Retired (Veteran) Military,  Law Enforcement & First Responders ALSO get a discount! Call us (716-837-3483) for further details!

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

Why choose DIPNDIVE?

Here at DIPNDIVE, we promote Safety above and beyond everything else with our Scuba Diving Certification Course. Safety is #1 and we won’t EVER sacrifice Safety for profit. With our Scuba Diving Certification Course, we want to make you the safest Diver you can be, which in turn makes you a much better partner while underwater.

Should a student need more time whether from an academic or pool standpoint due to them having a different learning curve, then you will get the additional time that you need at NO ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU!

We’ve been in business since 1976, longer than any other Dive shop here in WNY. We’ve trained 10’s of thousands of Divers over the years, some of who may include your family and friends. Unfortunately though, through the years, some of our competition makes it a normal business practice to spread misinformation about our company to earn your business.

We do NOT have ANY hidden fees. We fully explain everything (including all the possible costs for getting into a new sport) to the student BEFORE they register, as that is how it SHOULD be. This is the DIPNDIVE pledge to you!

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 - DIPNDIVE!

Come to DIPNDIVE to get Your Passport To The Underwater World!

Dip 'N Dive's Scuba Diving Certification Course benefits:

  • Most other dive shops will charge you an additional fee should you need more time academically or more time in the pool. Due to the fact that everyone learns at a different pace, we don't feel its right to charge you more money because you may have a different learning curve. Rest assured, you will NEVER BE CHARGED AN ADDITIONAL PENNY SHOULD YOU NEED MORE TIME!
  • Special Pricing for Students of DIPNDIVE
  • Largest and most experienced staff of Diving Professionals (Instructors & Divemasters) in WNY
  • Training at multiple locations across WNY
  • Flexible scheduling for those who have active lifestyles - Private Lessons available! Call for details!
  • You will be informed of all the possible costs ahead of time. We do not believe in hidden costs
  • Your Training Dives are included with the course and you are NOT charged an "Instructor" fee (why pay an additonal $90 when you've already paid a course fee? That's just silly...)
  • You are NOT required to buy ANY academic material, we provide a book for you to use while you're taking one of our "Organized Courses" (you won't be forced into buying any "Educational Kits" that are designed to make the Dive Shop more money)


DIPNDIVE opened in 1976 and is the longest active dive shop here in WNY! We have an impeccable safety record here at DIPNDIVE and we have more experience among all of our staff members here, than any other dive shop here locally! We've also 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? Well....you 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.
