What they say

Darren BM

I was certified in my teens, and after decades without diving, I took my 11-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son to High Plains Scuba for certification for them and a skill update for me. I'm so pleased that I did.

Nick Lane

I did my classroom and pool work here for my cert, and had a good experience. Good gear selection. They’ve always been knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.

Nic D Designation

Their swim lessons are great. Instructors are great to work with, and the other employees are very helpful as well. Highly recommend their swim lessons for any age.

Thanks to you Conner and your Scuba Skills class, my dive in Tahiti was a success! You were an awesome instructor and I appreciate very much! Some pics of my adventures!

My boyfriend and I recently started our open water dive certification here. We worked with Greg and Jordan and had a great experience! They were both very knowledgeable and encouraging instructors. I would highly recommend them.
