New Mexico Scuba Center

New Mexico Scuba Center

Comments

As scuba divers, my husband and I love the sport. So we decided to introduce a 16 YO teenager visiting us from Europe to diving. I spent some time researching the local shops and selected NM Scuba Center for her training. I am so glad we made that decision! She received the Open Water certification this weekend and loved the experience - and we loved the dedication and professionalism of the instructors and dive master throughout the course. Many thanks to Phil, Bill, and Paul for getting this young diver started on what I hope will be a life-long pursuit. I warmly recommend this company if you choose to give diving a shot - and why would you not?
Olivia LOVED Try Scuba this past Saturday. Angie was the best! Now my daughter wants to be in the water everyday. Thank you for this great experience and we look forward to more time spent at Scuba Center.
Hello! I’m looking for people interested to start Underwater Rugby in Albuquerque. Ideally UNM staff or students. Let me know if you live in the area and are interested to get it going! I set up a first page,

Thank you John and Stacy for the great SCUBA instruction. I wasn't 100% sure I could do it, but thanks to you and my classmates, I did. WOOHOO! completing the open water section in Bonaire has me so jazzed to keep diving and learning. Thanks NMSC!
Hey all, is anybody headed up to Bubbles and Brats on the 16th? Looking to get some dives in!
