So you finally decided to scratch "learn to dive" off the bucket list.

You’ve always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. 

If you want a CHEAP DIVE COURSE you are at the wrong place.  

*You're not going to pay us for a certification card, 

you're going to pay us to teach you to be the best diver you can be. That's why we pay our instructors by the hour not a flat rate per card issued the way other shops do.  UBDiving instructors are competent, experienced professionals.  The will take the time it takes to make sure you feel confident that you are prepared to dive without them. 

 *We have the best training gear anywhere!

Lots of shops teach you cold water diving in wet suits (then they charge you extra to take another course to be warm).  NOT US!  You will use top of the line dry suits that can be easily customized for you to be sure you have a perfect fit. We wouldn't use some urine soaked rental wet suit. YUK! We would not expect anyone else to use one either so we don't even own wet suits! 

*If you or your instructor feel you need extra practice we will do what it takes. You may attend our extra pool sessions during your regular scheduled course so you can finish with your class or you can take additional training during another regularly scheduled course an we won't charge you for those sessions.

*We spare no expense on our training equipment. You will use AQUALUNG CORE & TITAN ACD regualtors designed for ICE DIVING, (we don't supply ice),  Our APEKS BLACK ICE bcds are not some low-end unit. Nope, this is high end gear that our own commercial dive crew & many military divers use every day! They hold all your lead and tank comfortably from your shoulders so you don't have to worry a belt sliding off your hips. 

*You are going to want to own your own mask so almost every mask we sell is in our training packs.  During your pool training you are encouraged to try them all so you will have zero issues when you do make that most important of purchases.  Even then if you decide later you hate it, bring it back and pick out another. NO QUESTIONS ASKED! 

*Did I mention there is at least 10% discount for any gear you purchase prior to your ocean dives?
