Students: Sign Up for May Certification Dives Now!
If you took an Open Water class this winter, but haven't done your certification dives yet, sign up now for one of our student charters in May. Early summer is our busiest time for certification dives, and because only 4-6 students are allowed per charter, space is very limited. Call to schedule your dives today!
Gear Service Queue Now 4 Weeks
Due to the high volume of equipment service requests generated in March, Charleston Scuba's anticipated turnaround time for regulator repairs (i.e. overhauls) is 3-4 weeks. If you need tanks visually inspected, please allow 3 days.
