ABOUT US Meet the Scuba Buddys Team

PADI 5 Star DCSCUBA BUDDYS was established in 2012 with the aim of providing high quality service to the scuba diving community. Prior to Scuba Buddys the store was named Kathys Scuba in 2012 Paul and Kathy retired and I had the opportunity to purchase the store, which was a decision that I have never regretted.  The store has been serving the Shenandoah Valley for over 30 years. As a PADI 5 Star Center, SCUBA BUDDYS has gained not only the respect from the industry locally, but now has a long-standing reputation worldwide. We offer quality service for the recreational, technical and cave diving community.

With exclusive deals in the Carribean, US and abroad we guarantee you the best diving , not only in the US, but all around the world.
