About Scottsdale Scuba
Scottsdale Scuba owner Rick Owens believes that no one's too busy to learn how to dive—with ultra-flexible class scheduling, he makes sure of it, having once gone as far as to hold classes at 2:30 a.m. to accommodate one group. Owens works with two other veteran divemasters to make sure students can get in the water whenever they have the time. All together, his team of teachers boasts about 100 years of combined experience, meaning they can embarrass away most sharks by threatening to reveal their baby photos.
The shop itself has been open since 1991, during which time instructors have kept adapting their teaching style to their students' needs. Alums are even invited to stop by dive sessions at Lake Pleasant for free refreshers on diving skills and new equipment.
