Scuba Classes for your Schedule
Scuba Classes New York
You work hard; you play hard. Making time for a new sport’s a challenge. At Scuba New York, we got you covered. We’re the only dive shop in the region with an on-site, heated pool allowing us to offer the most classes in the region to meet your 24/7, jam-packed schedule. And, our promise to you: Classes will never be cancelled simply because you’re the only student enrolled.
Call or email us today. We’ll get you started with the course to fit your learning style, schedule, and your goals.
Did you know our on-site, heated pool is filled with salt water? Studies show that salt water is kinder and more therapeutic to exposed skin than regular pool water. Scuba New York students benefit from the buoyancy of the salt water. Bonus: It’s more like swimming in the ocean than a community pool.
More Classes from Experienced Instructors
Our certified instructors set our dive center apart. They love what they do, care about the quality of the program and give 110% to our students. On average, our instructors have 10 years teaching experience—more teaching years combined than any other dive shop in the region. Together our instructors have logged 6,409 dives. Scuba New York instructors renew their instructor certification annually, including CPR and First Aid. Our staff teaches a range of PADI scuba classes including Advanced, Rescue, Master, DiveMaster, Nitrox and Specialty courses.
Group or Private Scuba Instruction
No other dive center in the area offers the same level of flexibility and privacy. If a scheduled course doesn’t fit your busy life, let us know. We’re happy to customize your instruction needs to fit time restrictions and privacy concerns. You could be certified in as few as 3 days! Or, if you want to complete your Open Water Certification dives during an upcoming vacation, we can provide the required hours of theory and pool-time instruction before you leave.
Our experienced PADI dive instructors are available for private lessons at our pool or yours. We understand there are occasions and circumstances which require privacy. Our promise: We employ the upmost discretion in these cases.

Bonus: We’re a PADI Five Star IDC facility. We’ve met additional training requirements and offer PADI instructor-level training. A win-win for divers at all levels who train with us!

We Got the Goods
Our Gear Shop offers rentals, gear, equipment service and repair. We’re all about old-fashioned, customer service and competitive pricing. Scuba New York’s retail team is made up of experienced PADI certified divers and instructors who put your safety first. The next time you shop at a mega online retailer, or at a local sporting goods store, ask yourself, “Is it prudent to purchase gear from someone who’s never been underwater?”
Active Ocean Stewards
Scuba New York and our instructors support and volunteer with REEF, an organization founded out of a growing concern about the health of the marine environment and the desire to engage scuba divers to understand and protect marine populations.
