Deep Experience

Our Vision

We want to instill the wonder and wellness that comes from time spent in the water by sharing the love of all things ocean through experienced diving instruction, friendly customer service, and access to the best equipment available.

Our Story

At Santa Barbara Aquatics, our story is one of friendship, passion, and a deep love for the ocean. It all began in 2017 when two friends, both experienced scuba instructors, came together with a shared dream – to create a diving experience like no other. Inspired by the beauty and wonder of the underwater world, they embarked on a mission to share their knowledge and instill a sense of awe and adventure in others.

Driven by their belief that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the water, they set out to build a dive shop that would provide not only top-notch equipment but also exceptional training and unforgettable aquatic experiences. With years of expertise and a genuine desire to make a difference, Santa Barbara Aquatics was born.

What sets us apart is our genuine passion for diving and our commitment to excellence. Our team is made up of dedicated divers who not only provide friendly customer service but also have first-hand experience using the equipment we offer. We understand the needs and challenges faced by divers because we are divers ourselves. Our instructors, with their lifetime of dive experience, ensure that every student receives the highest level of instruction and guidance.

Since our inception, we have been on a continuous journey to curate the best equipment available. We handpick each item, ensuring that our customers have access to reliable, high-performance gear that enhances their diving experience. Our goal is to create a community of divers who support and inspire one another, fostering a sense of camaraderie and adventure both above and below the surface.

Join us on this incredible journey as we dive into a world of adventure, exploration, and lifelong memories. At Santa Barbara Aquatics, we are dedicated to sharing the love of all things ocean, one dive at a time.

They helped me get fitted for OW certification. I even had to try different fins for the right fit and they made it work. Knowledgable staff with high quality equipment. What more could you ask for!?
