Scuba Diving Lessons with Smaller Classes
Divers West is a PADI 5 Star IDC located in Pasadena, California. We offer PADI's beginning scuba diving courses such as PADI Open Water Diver as well as Advanced Open Water, and Rescue Diver training. We like to keep our classes smaller so it's a better learning experience. You won't see 20 students in a pool.
We are also a professional training center offering courses such as DiveMaster, PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor up to Master Instructor.
Scuba Refresher Course
Sometimes life takes us away from what we truly love. Then suddenly the kids are big... I have money again....I'm retired...or finally I have time to get back in the water. We have two scuba refresher courses to refresh the muscle memory and get you updated on the latest diving gear or techniques. Our eLearning ReActivate course is for the already PADI certified diver. Take an online refresher lesson, then, if you like, sign up for some pool time to get your gills wet. Done. For our non-PADI certified friends, we offer a generic refresher course called Scuba Tune-Up. This can be taken by any certified diver from any agency such as NAUI, Los Angeles County, SSA, etc. You get a book, you get some class time, then finish up with a few hours of pool time. Please call for more information.
For a scuba diver, owning your own gear is the best thing ever. You take care of it. It's matched to your diving style. Best of all, no one else uses it but you! At Divers West we will advise you on the different types of gear and match you based on your diving style and experience. We have a large assortment of scuba equipment brands for the beginner and specialized gear for the advanced scuba diver. We have scuba kits for the budget conscious individual as well as for our more sophisticated friends that want the very best. Please ask us about advertised price matching! If you already have your gear or just purchased a new piece of equipment, but need training/practice on how to use it, ask us about our Gear Practice/Training Sessions in the pool. Better to figure out your gear before you go into the ocean. Right?
Let us help you grow as a diver. Come check out our selection of masks, fins, dive computers, regulators, buoyancy compensators, and more.
Service/Repairs and Rentals
Good scuba gear can last you 20 years..if you take care of it. Divers West offers service/repair of the most recognized brands, in house. If you already own your gear, we can test and overhaul your gear to manufacturere's specifications.
We also offer scuba equipment rentals. Many new divers prefer to practice more before they make a decision on what gear to buy. We can help you. Try an aluminum cylinder, or maybe try a steel cylinder. 72, 80, and 100 cu ft cylinders all feel different under water. You may prefer one over the other. We'll be happy to give you tips on how different types of equipment could affect your diving. You can then make a more informed decision on what's best for you. (50% off rental rates for newly certified divers. Ask for details.)
