Thanks for Joining us at Columbia Scuba!

As a community of divers who band together like a family, we hear different reasons why people want to learn to dive.

For some, it's been a long time goal; some say it's because they have friends that dive and they want to join them on their scuba adventures. For others, it's because they are going on a cruise or vacation and they want to dive while they are away.

The great thing is that it doesn't matter why you decide to become certified. As a PADI certified diver you'll become a member of the largest dive organization in the world. 

It doesn't matter if you've been certified with an agency other than PADI. We've worked with divers that began with SSI, TDI, NAUI and other certifications to discover the PADI difference and become advanced, well rounded divers. 

From photography/videography to ecology/conservation or travel/social gatherings, PADI scuba diving gives you a different perspective to discover and explore our world.

At Columbia Scuba, we thrive on quality service, safety and of course a lot of fun! Because we are a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center, our staff can help  you can learn and experience as much as you desire.

There is one thing we are sure of, when you begin scuba diving, it's easy to find something that sparks your passion for exploring!

What are you waiting for?
