Aquarius Dive Shop

Aquarius Dive Shop has been a place for aspiring scuba divers to shop, train, and earn certifications for years, as current owner James Vincent knows all too well. He got his own Open Water, Advanced Open Water, and Rescue Diver certifications through the shop before he owned it. The training actually put James on the path to becoming a PADI Dive Master, and he now leads open-water excursions of his own.

So why did James buy the place that trained him? Well, he wanted to help provide ever-richer opportunities for new divers to learn in a safe, controlled environment. Today, James has two other expert divers on his teaching team, each with their own specialties and favorite color of sea anemone. Bruce Sawyer, a true veteran of the submariner's world, boasts more than 2,000 dives at locations around the world. Brandon Bianchi, on the other hand, provides life-saving training as an Emergency First Response Instructor.

I am traveling from Canada and was fortunate and booked last minute to get a taste of the Monterey Bay Area dive sites and they were able to get me in. The staff were very helpful and friendly at the shop. I had some of my own gear but also rented a tank, weights and wetsuit. The gear was ... Read More
