Scuba North - Test Center for the Arctic Expedition and Halo 3D
Scuba North is a full-service dive shop that has resided in Northern Michigan since 1971. As a small, local business we have made a name for ourselves as a go-to place in the Great Lakes Region for great advice, training, and sales.
Our instructors bring a wide variety of knowledge and service that is unmatched in the area. We have scuba experience from all over the world at many levels, and are eager to teach and refine skills for any diver. Safety is the pinnacle of diving and our instructors ensure divers learn safety, but make it an enjoyable experience. We are a facility that certifies divers through PADI and NAUI, and TDI. Another aspect that makes us unique is that our staff has a range of experience from open water to tri-mix and cave diving and everywhere in between. We offer individual perspectives and first-hand experiences to help answer any questions, whether about good places to dive or the proper equipment for your adventure.
We serve the diving community up north in a versatile way. From snorkeling gear to technical products, we carry a diverse selection of brands that are world-renowned for their quality. We are able to answer any questions about our products, and service them whenever needed. We provide a full range of rental gear that is available to suit any need.
Throughout the year we host several events. During the summer months we have weekly shore dives, called Local Evening Dives, administered by a dive master. This is a great way for local divers or tourists to meet new dive buddies or see the sights in the greater Traverse City/Lake Leelanau area. Beyond the local diving along Michigan’s beautiful freshwater coastline and shipwrecks, we offer adventure travel to various destinations as diverse as Cozumel, Truk and Scotland, and many more, appealing to any diving enthusiast. Opportunities are endless when working with our shop, and our flexible, easy-going way of operating can make any possibility come to life.
ur Northern Michigan location is often characterized by cold water diving conditions. We set a standard for providing specialized gear, whether it’s a heated vest or optimizing a regulator for cold water. We excel in dry suit training to combat the cold. Chilly surroundings demand thermal protection, and we strive to bring our customers the best selection of undergarments for dry suits to keep our patrons safe and warm. It is vital to the wellbeing and comfort of a diver to know they have the right gear, so we happily give the option to test products before you buy them.
