About Dirty Adventures Scuba

Our mission is driven by the following three pillars: community, education, and sustainability. At Dirty Adventures Scuba, we want to grow the diving community in an inclusive manner. We want to provide a space for divers who are traditionally underrepresented in diving leadership and encourage underrepresented groups to partake in scuba diving. As a boutique scuba facility, we offer scuba instruction from try diving all the way up to the Assistant Instructor level, and with a maximum student-to-instructor ratio of 3:1, you will never be left behind. Lastly, we believe in the power of scuba education to increase awareness of humanity’s impact on our environment. Scuba diving is uniquely positioned to allow the general public to experience our beautiful, yet fragile, underwater ecosystems while communicating what we are at risk of losing through climate change.
