Virginia Scuba was Northern Virginia's first professional dive facility to offer full dive training and support for recreational and technical diving, we even offer technician courses! We may no longer be the only dive shop to offer technical training, but we're still the best!

Our instructor staff offers a full range of SSI courses and a full range of technical courses from SSI, TDI and IANTD.  Our highly experienced instructor staff includes two Instructor Trainers,  four Divemaster Instructors, three Open Water Instructors, two Dive Control Specialists and two Divemasters.  Our tech instructors have years of experience teaching courses up to and including open circuit trimix and closed circuit rebreather.    We have been conducting rebreather and mixed gas training here for over 10 years.

We can blend trimix and any deco mix, boost pure O2, and can accommodate any custom mix desired.  We even bank 32% Nitrox.  We have our lab air test results on display at our fill station for you to inspect. When we oxygen service your regulators and valves, it is done in a positive pressure, HEPA filtered oxygen clean room (the only one in the area). 

Like most dive shops, we offer local and exotic dive travel.  Our owners and instructors do what we do because we love nothing more than to GO DIVING!  We dive everywhere from the local quarries to the most beautiful ocean locations on the planet.  If you are looking for worry free travel, stop in or give us a call.  Our staff is always looking for an excuse to go dive somewhere.  Check out our trips online or at the store...if you don't see where you want to go already listed, tell us and we'll see if we can get a trip put together.

Virginia Scuba has nearly 5,000sq ft of space in our shop, we have 17,000 cubic feet of compressed gas storage, 2 compressors, booster pumps, mixing panels, the region's only positive pressure O2 clean room in a dive shop, tank service facilities, classrooms, a full service shop with flow bench, sets of rental twin tanks, deco bottles, and a full range of technical as well as recreational rental equipment and rebreather supplies.... just to name a few of our features!
