Great times at Blue hole.
Can we go diving yet?
My friends at The Scuba Company gifted me this full face mask that can be used for PPE. Keep in mind the store has been closed for almost 2 months yet they still found a way to give back to their community. I am beyond blessed by my SCUBA family. ❤
IMHO, The Scuba company is the best dive company in Albuquerque. Great equipment selection, knowledgeable instructors and friendly staff. Looking forward to my advanced underwater certification at the end of August.

Anyone interested in diving Blue Hole this weekend (1/19-1/20)? Message me if interested.....Dana
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,

or message me with any questions.

I won a free 2 dive boat trip the last time I was in Key Largo. Sadly, I don't expect to make it back there to claim the trip before it expires.

If anyone in our Scuba Co family will be heading to Key Largo to dive before November 7th, 2018, and would like to use this coupon, drop me a note at [email protected].
Are you a PADI Divemaster (or will you soon become one)? Would you like to take the next step in your professional development, allowing you to help in more direct ways with classes, and even teach some classes on your own? PADI Assistant Instructor is the next step in your professional training, and we have a class this May! Class will be on May 12, 13, 19, 20, and 26.

Once you are a PADI Assistant Instructor, you can do all of these things a Divemaster cannot:

1. Present the knowledge development elaboration for any PADI Diver course under the instructor’s indirect supervision. The instructor personally assesses student knowledge development. �
2. Present initial skills training under the instructor’s direct supervision during confined water dives. �
3. Conduct open water surface skill evaluations during Open Water Diver course dives under the instructor’s indirect supervision. �
4. Teach and certify Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Divers under the direction of an instructor. �
5. Independently teach the Project AWARE (nondiving) Specialty course. �
6. Independently teach the Coral Reef Conservation (nondiving) Specialty course. �
7. Independently conduct Discover Scuba Diving in a pool or confined water. �
8. Independently conduct Bubblemaker programs. �
9. Independently conduct PADI Seal Team AquaMissions. �
10. Teach and certify divers in specialty courses that don’t include dives after completing Specialty Instructor Training courses and earning Specialty Instructor ratings for such specialties. �
11. After completing the corresponding instructor training and earning Specialty Instructor ratings, conduct Digital Underwater Photographer specialty courses under the direction of a PADI Instructor. �

Everything in the course also counts towards your IDC, saving time and reducing the cost if you decide to continue on to become an instructor.

Interested? Give us a call at Scuba Company.
Thanks, Yasmany, for helping me get my face in the water. You really went over the top to help me figure out what to do and how to do it.
Congratulations to Brandon Beck, who got certified this weekend in Altitude and Underwater Pumpkin Carving, and Kevin Gourley, who earned his Open Water certification. It was a great weekend was Blue Hole, with mild weather and remarkably clear water--80 foot vis on Saturday and still 60 foot even on Sunday.

Annual pumpkin carving and spooky dive.

Wow what a fun weekend with a bunch of great divers, life is too short to work, eat, sleep, and repeat. Way to come out and live life folks. Haunted blue hole was a sight to see, very glad Borat came by once again this year. See you all next holloween for some more fun. Congrats to our winners on pumpkin carving, you folks showed great buoyancy and knife skills. #thescubaco #quality #scuba #ShopLocal #ShopSmall #communityfirst #community #padi #Halloween #fun

Opinion: Stop buying so much from Amazon. Support your local businesses instead

In the scuba retail business one thing people fail to realize is that experience and service are not offered by online sales. Sadly more scuba retail stores keep closing month after month while online retailers keep growing. Eventually the store where people get trained at to become divers will be a thing of the past, where then will the shoppers for scuba gear come from? This is food for thought for all to think about in the current times that we are living in. #shoplocal #ShopSmall #thescubaco #quality #scuba #community #communityfirst

Wow what a wonderful and once again stormy weekend. We find ourselves wondering how we get such amazing customers willing to deal with New Mexico’s wonderful rain storms in order to have a life changing experience. We want to congratulate the Open Water Class, the advanced class, our private Open Water class, and The Finest Rescue class you can ask for. You all did a phenomenal job this weekend, great job to all of our pros that make these classes posible and keep our rations so low that all of our customers still get that one on one attention. A special Job Well Done to Cameron for stepping up to the challenge and completing his Open Water certification, the challenges you faced this weekend only gives us all inspiration.#thescubaco #quality #dive #firststepfoundation #divewithus #padi #family #communityfirst #hsa

First of we would love to congratulate all of you that came out and took your first breaths underwater. We are all so proud and humbled to have been able to witness by helping you all try scuba diving. A huge thank you to our staff, our partner Cody Unser and The First Step Foundation, and. Alex Rodriguez and NM State Police for getting all the man power needed to create such a wonderful event. None of this could have not happened if it weren’t for our sponsors and donors, Sam Weinberg Prosthetics, Eladio Muniz Allstate, Carl Penninton with XLTshirts, Rio Rancho Aquatic Center, Rio Rancho Mayor Gregg Hall, and let us not forget our special vendors for your gear donations Huish Outdoors, and IST diving systems. None of this could have been accomplished with our all of you. #family #firststepfoundation #thescubaco #quality #dive #divewithus #padi #community #communityfirst #HSA
