Cannot recommend this dive shop enough! I recently got certified with Dive Pros and had a great experience! I was nervous about diving, but our instructor was very patient and made sure we had plenty of practice with each skill. The staff is also very knowledgeable and friendly, and made purchasing gear a breeze.

“Best dive shop in Pensacola in my opinion. Amazing customer service and relation. I bought a brand new BCD from them and the buckle was defective. They immediately sent it out and offered to let me use a rental BCD for any dive until mine came back from the manufacturer. They are incredibly helpful and not pushy to buy their gear. I will be a life long customer.”

Pat B, Google Review 2013

As a former dive shop co-owner and assistant instructor I was careful choosing a shop for a friend’s certification and was very pleased with the thoroughness, safety and pleasure of the entire experience. The instructor was kind, caring and experienced and made sure everyone felt comfortable and satisfied. No high pressure on sales or classes.

Wonderful place to do business! My wife and I took our Open Water dive class here and feel very comfortable and confident in what we learned. The dive shop is competitively priced, with a great selection and helpful employees. The dive community that surrounds this shop is top notch and very inclusive to beginners. Look forward to using Dive Pros for all our dive needs in the future!

I am new to the gulf coast and this dive shop has not only helped me with my purchases from their large selection, they are also happy to share their knowledge, they have also made me feel welcome and treated me as a friend not just a customer. I highly recommend dive pros.

This is BY FAR, the best dive shop on the Gulf Coast. I am a local and I can honestly say that they have the most professional employees, the nicest facility and the most amazing attitudes! Most importantly, Dive Pros cares greatly about the community and our beaches. They are environmentally friendly and they care about your safety! I would recommend them to anyone of all diving levels and ages!
