WHO WE ARE
Texas Dive Center, Inc is a Disabled Divers International (DDI) Training Center and SSI Diamond Instructor Training Center. We train the best divers and work with them to become the best Instructors or anything in between that they wish to accomplish. Being a competent diver is achieved through training, experience, and repetition. We believe their are no limitations to diving and we can train and certify most disabled to enjoy the sport within their limits. No one should be confined to a disability. As a PSI Premier Facility, we are dedicated to taking the best care of your dive equipment and offer a full range of equipment services by our expert technicians.
At Texas Dive Center we offer MARES, SCUBA PRO, TUSA, Waterproof, Henderson, Ocean Technology Systems (OTS) and other quality brands of equipment. More importantly we service and repair what we sell with Expert Technicians ready to help you maintain your dive equipment. Our dive shop does your scuba tank annual inspection and 5 yr hydro-testing "in-house." No other dive shop in the region does it all like Texas Dive Center.
