Scuba Diving Certifications
Becoming a Scuba Diver
Learn to scuba dive with PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Lessons. Classes are offered year-round with many options to meet your schedule.
In addition to our scheduled classes, PADI eLearning options are available as well as private and semi-private classes.
Continuing your Scuba Training
Our focus is to introduce the underwater world to scuba divers and snorkelers in a safe and secure environment. The Open Water Course is a great introduction to diving, but to become more proficient as a diver, additional education is warranted.
We offer a broad array of scuba classes up through Divemaster and Master Diver. The continuing education courses are designed to expose divers to various specialty areas of interest such as Nitrox, Navigation, Rescue, Ice, Underwater Photography and Night Diving to name a few.
Every diver will not be interested in every specialty, but these specialties are designed to hone your diving skills, making you a better diver and a better buddy.
Snorkeling is the easiest way to view the underwater world. Having the proper snorkel gear is the key to enjoying your snorkel experiences. We stock a wide array of snorkeling gear as well as many snorkeling accessories. Every snorkeler will receive a complimentary fitting with one of our staff members to ensure that your snorkel set will fit properly and work the best for you. We have snorkel equipment for any age.
We offer snorkeling classes by appointment and often combine them with a Try Scuba or Discover Scuba experience if the participants are interested. These can be arranged for individuals, small groups or larger organizations such as schools, Scout Troops or businesses.
Klein Scuba represents and carries only the highest quality Scuba equipment. We stand behind the equipment and gear that we sell and test the quality of the equipment prior to bringing it into the store. We strive to offer a wide variety of state-of-the-art Scuba gear on our showroom floor as well as in our rental selection. We will not sell or rent anything that we would not be comfortable owning ourselves.
We have an online store through Aqualung where purchases are made directly from Aqualung. Since we are an authorized Aqualung dealer, this enables customer to purchase Aqualung gear online and still receive the Aqualung warranty and lifetime free parts for servicing. Purchasing through the Aqualung website is the only way to purchase online and receive their warranty. Purchases of gear online from unauthorized dealers have no warranties, which is often not disclosed to the buyers.
We also showcase some of our Clearance Snorkel and Scuba equipment online. These items are generally items that have been discontinued and we often have limited sizes and colors remaining. These deals are valid in the store also.
Scuba Dive and Snorkel Vacations
New divers often ask “Where are the best diving vacations?” That is very difficult question to answer because we like so many places. We continually add new locations to our travel schedule because there are just so many places to dive and snorkel.
We lead four to six group trips a year – some to more exotic places like Caribbean Islands, Mexico or Asia, and some to more local spots such as the Great Lakes or Midwest mines and quarries. The underwater world is so vast and there is just so much to see. The majority of our trips are designed for divers and snorkelers of any level – beginner to advanced.
In order to keep our rental gear up to date, we will annually sell the prior year’s rental regulators and BCs and restock with updated models. This gives divers have an opportunity to learn on and try state-of-the-art equipment to assist them in their purchasing decisions.
Service and Repairs
Scuba equipment should be inspected and/or serviced annually to ensure it’s safety. We service all current makes and brands of dive equipment, to include tanks, regulators, buoyancy compensators (BCs), dive computers, gauges, and drysuits. For most manufacturers, we can service discontinued models of equipment as well.
We specialize in Aqualung, Atomic, Sherwood Scuba, Deep See and US Divers brands. Most of the repairs or servicing on those brands is done in-house. Through our affiliates, we can service most of the other Scuba brands. Your scuba equipment is your lifeline when you are diving and it is always crucial to have it repaired by a factory authorized technician.
