What People Say…
Appreciate the personal service and care at oceanic ventures.
Ann really took her time helping to fit my niece with her first mask and fins. We so appreciated the personal attention, and we loved that she was open to talking about dive certification, but she wasn't giving us the hard sell. We live out toward Tomball but would happily drive back here vs. going to a nearby competitor simply for the service.
Oceanic Ventures is wonderful
They gave been wonderful all the way. My son started in Scuba Rangers and now we are both certified; thank you for taking care of us!
I loved the course!
Oceanic Ventures is great with children
They are great with children!
Thank you for the memories
I will never forget diving with my teen aged son for the first time. Thank you for the memories.
Eric Keibler is an Ambassador
Eric is a real ambassador for the rebreather world. Thanks for all of your hard work.
I learned a lot from Oceanic Ventures
I really enjoyed my Technical Diver Course and I learned a lot.
Oceanic Ventures is the best dive shop
Best Dive Shop I've ever used. I've been diving since 1984 and you will not find more talented staff anywhere else. They are small, family owned and service oriented #1. You get personal service from start to finish from people who actually dive all over the world. I've taken simple to advance courses from them and the trainers are excellent. Dive trips are well organized to unique locations and always fun. This type of depth of knowledge is very difficult to find, especially in Texas.
Oceanic Ventures is a great dive shop
Great dive shop with wonderful instructors to share your passion for the underwater world. They have fun for the whole family from kids diving programs through advanced diving. Checkout their scuba diving vacation to some of the best diving in the world. I really like the Diva dive vacation to Grand Cayman.
Oceanic Ventures is the best
I have been to many scuba stores in Houston and this one is by far the best. Most scuba stores have a couple of salespersons who will show you one of the 40 types of fins and 10 types of regulators that they have in stock and immediately try to sell these to you. Most of these same stores really cater only to people just getting certified. Oceanic ventures has a very different business model. While they do have an inventory, it is not as large as other stores. The difference is that they really try to foster a dive community. It works. People come back again and again. Further, unlike many stores, they teach just about everything possible. If you want to teach your child how to snorkel, they teach that. If you want to learn how to dive 350 feet down on a rebreather using helium gas mixes and several additional scuba tanks, they teach that. They teach everything in between. Not many stores do that. Additionally, the staff is very knowledgeable about all the equipment they sell. You will never get an "I don't know about that" type of answer.
