Why Malibu Divers?

Before You Decide

Consider this

Personal Service
For over 40 years we’ve built our business around personable, highly individualized service. We know discerning divers expect it, and we expect it of ourselves.  

Experience and Passion
There’s no substitute for fins-in-the-water experience; seamless, fulfilling, beyond-the-ordinary dive training, travel, gear sales and service which involves far more than a few mouse clicks and leading over-crowded classes. Our staff is a passionate group of diving lovers and professional trainers, intimately acquainted with all aspects of diving education, gear, and dive sites around the world —there’s not a dive site they haven’t explored, with eyes-open delight.  And if by some slim chance, we haven't, we know where to go to get the answers and recommendations for you.

We are committed to creating a dive experience that meets your expectations and we’re fussy about details, large and small: creative, enhanced programs, flexible schedules, trip extras; enriching leaders; top-notch and value-based accommodations; the right daily plan of activities, transportation, and restaurants; and more. In fact, Malibu Divers is the only Dive Center in the western USA to have earned PADI's highest rating; a CDC Training Facility, representing superior management, customer service and training, and one of the few dive companies in the world with 4 PADI Course Directors, and an in-house travel agency expert. We’re dedicated to taking care of every detail with meticulous care and concern.

Since we launched the business over four decades ago, Malibu Divers has provided our clients with diver education and experiences that would be challenging or impossible to find elsewhere. From our roots pioneering diving with PADI to the far reaches of the oceans, we have incessantly searched and developed new programs, techniques and remarkable ways to experience diving. 

We urge you to surf the net, call our competitors, and check the fine print. Our prices are competitive, comprehensive and inclusive, especially considering the expertise and highly personalized service that go into every one of our courses and trips.  

Malibu Divers Professionals are all current emergency first responders (and several are Instructor Trainers) that are required to refresh their skills at least once every 24 months.  We also utilize around-the-clock emergency assistance resources through local law enforcement, DAN and PADI Travel. All of our trips abroad include DAN Travel insurance for each traveler.  Our beginning Open Water scuba program includes DAN insurance for each student diver.

Responsible Environmental Ambassadors
We love our local environments and the places we’re privileged to visit and are committed to careful, mindful, respectful diving. We work locally and around the world with nongovernmental organizations and our in-country partners to advance environmental, and educational, and sustainable use.

Since repeat and referred guests are a Malibu Divers mainstay, we urge you to ask us for references from individuals which we’ve trained, supported and operated trips for over the years.
