Open Water Adventures (Est. 1996)
Open Water Adventures opened in 1996 with a goal to provide the City of Charlotte NC, and the surrounding region with the best in dive equipment, scuba education, dive travel, equipment service, and diving socials with a personalized customer experience.
Founded by Joe Gaydeski, OWA is a Scuba Schools International Diamond Dive Center and proud members of an elite group of top dive professionals in the industry. As diving experts, we're dedicated to helping customers realize their goals and dreams in and around the water. Our staff is a friendly, knowledgable bunch of folks who truly love what they do, and it shows in the quality of service they offer each customer who walks through our doors.
OWA is passionate about conservation and underwater photography. We have spent the last 28 years teaching people an appreciation for the underwater world and teaching them how to photograph their experiences. We look forward to guiding each customer through their diving adventure, whether they're new to the world of scuba or advanced divers interested in improving their skills.
Our goal for each of our Divers is to Achieve the SSI "Master Diver Certification" at some point early in your Scuba Adventure. This series of courses and level of dive experience will enable you to dive anywhere in the world with Comfort and Confidence! Other divers and dive operators can see the difference!
If you have not been to our store, we invite you to stop by for a visit. We will be glad to give you a tour of our impressive training facility and on site training pool. We hope that you will soon become part of our Scuba Family.
Open Water Adventures offers a full compliment of Scuba Equipment, Education, Travel, Scuba Equipment Service, Social Events and local Dive Opportunities, and a Wealth of Knowledge!
