Dive Travel can be a fantasy or a nightmare, particularly if you pick the wrong travel service. Aquatic World researches all the locations we take groups to by visiting the location first. Unless we find great diving, accomodations and food, we won't take you there. We take care of all the planning from A to Z. You can feel sure your travel plans are in the hands of experts. Visit the Caribbean or the Pacific - you won't even have to worry about the details. Ask our travel customers about our service.

Unlike the high pressure sales stores, Aquatic World keeps the customer's needs as our primary concern. We are proud to offer the dive industries premier line of equipment from Aqua Lung, Suunto, Bare, Oceanic, Sherwood, Henderson, DUI, and Zeagle. Aquatic World does more than sell the gear you need: we also keep that gear in new condition with our expert staff.
