Aquarius Dive Shop has been in continuous operation since 1970 and is a pillar of the Monterey dive scene. We are proud to have been approved as a PADI 5-Star Instructor Development Center and offer recreational dive training at all levels from beginning Open Water through PADI IDC Staff Instructor, including Specialty Instructor and EFR Instructor. We are committed to provide thorough, safe, and enjoyable dive training which is in full compliance with all PADI training standards. We are the only PADI dive center in Monterey with a full-time Course Director on staff. We offer a complete line of top-quality equipment for sale, provide factory-authorized service on everything we sell, and have a well-stocked inventory of rental equipment. We provide hyper-clean air for ALL air fills (at no extra charge) and have banked EANx32 available for while-you-wait fills. We can do custom Nitrox blends at up to 50%, provided you supply an oxygen-cleaned cylinder. We frequently take certified divers who are new to the area on guided tours to introduce them to the beauty of the kelp forests and acquaint them with safety considerations which are unique to shore diving in the Monterey area. Aquarius Dive Shop has been voted the Monterey County Weekly’s Best Dive Shop of 2014!
going to the sea and not being able to dive is just like going to the circus and then having to stand on the outside of the tent!
Aquarius Dive Shop is located in Monterey, just off Highway One, minutes from shore diving and from boat docks. We are the only dive shop in town with free, unlimited parking, with enough space for boats! Our easy on/off highway access is ideal for diving both in Monterey or Carmel.
