A Chat with Orange County Scuba Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are a PADI Five Star Instructor Development Center with skilled instructors who enjoy diving regularly and continue to dive with our students long after they are certified divers. Our customers are made to feel at home a OC Scuba Center, were they know the owners and the owners know them.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
We provide with the course: Instruction Manual, wet suit, Buoyancy Compensation Device, Regulators and weights Students must have: Mask, fins, snorkel, gloves & booties (these items must be approved for ocean diving by instructor) WE OFFER LOWEST PRICING ON THESE ITEMS AND $25 CREDIT ON PURCHASE!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
This scuba shop was formerly Pacific Wilderness in Orange County. When the owner decided he would focus on his San Pedro location, and close the Orange County store, 3 of his instructors decided to purchase the store as a shop that is owned and operated by divers for divers to feel at home!
What do you love most about your job?
The best part of my job as an instructor is the dive community itself. I have been blessed to meet, know, and dive with some of the nicest people in the community. At OCSC, we have been able to open our shop up to the dive community as a place where friends gather to share dive experiences.
