Deep Blue Scuba

Dive Centre

Deep Blue Scuba – Quite A Journey:

Deep Blue Scuba started in 1996 as a “training centre” within another dive centre in Scotts road.  Known as OutBound Divers, we were an SSI Dive Centre with 5 “freelance” instructors on roster.  In 1999, we moved to our first premises; a small unit of just 200 sq ft in Fook Hai Building along South Bridge Road, and we are known since then as Deep Blue Scuba.

The continual support from our customers enabled us to shift to a bigger shop with a big backyard in Monk’s Hill next to Newton Circle.  The weekly trip pick up point and the Newton Circle Food Centre were at our doorstep!  Our stay was sweet but short as the whole estate was taken over by the URA.  On our final night, we had such a crowded and wild party that our shop looked more like a pub.

We shifted to a 2-unit premises at Riverside Point and shortly after switched to become a PADI Dive Centre.  With 5 full-time PADI instructors augmented by an active dive crew of more than 30 volunteer dive instructors, assistant instructors and divemasters, we were easily the largest dive centre then, with nearly 1200 people diving and learning with us every year.  In 2000, we were promoted to a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre; and in the following year, we attained the rating of PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre.

Rising rental cost forced us to shift to a unit within the Big Splash Complex at East Coast Park in 2003.  Nonetheless, it was heaven on earth for us; we had a saltwater pool right in front and the beach behind us.  We conducted discover scuba sessions in the pool and organized Project Aware events with school kids using the beach as our classroom.  We occasionally organized BBQ parties at our courtyard and even plugged LCD projector to our Xbox and played console games outdoor!  In early 2005, we were told by our landlord that the master lease was expiring.  And so again, we looked for a new place.

And back in town we went.  We found a unit within a stone’s throw away from Clark Quay MRT along Hong Kong Street.  Although it is smaller and has no lift assess, we had very pleasant and memorable time here.  We squeezed at the corridor outside our unit to hold our usual Chinese New Year lo hei steam boat dinner.  We offered free slimming sessions to our divers when we were back from dive trips by asking them to bring up the heavy dive bags from the ground floor to our shop at level three. Being environment friendly at heart, we became an eco-operator in 2008.

Rentals were again the reason that we shifted to our present premises 2 minutes walk away from where we were:

Yes, South Bridge Road, where we started.  It really feels that we have come a full circle.  13 years.

“Amazing Dive has an accident-free 13 year history of PADI Dive Operations in Singapore.  Amazing Dive is one of the few 5-Star Dive Centres in Singapore, and we’re happy to serve customers from all around the world!

Popular among tourists, especially backpackers,  local varsity students and adults young at heart, Amazing Dive merges the experience, professionalism and stringent safety standards enforced by our senior instructor-mentors, with the vibrant energy  of the Amazin’ crew.

Based smack in the middle of tourist Chinatown and near the famous Smith Street (food street) in Singapore, Amazing Dive has long shifted its focus from being a commercialised diving business into the most experience-orientated, chill-out/hang out spot Dive centre ever conceivable. There’s a reason we’re the only dive centre in Singapore with a zero accident history in all 13 years of operations.

Retail

Prudent, Honest Pricings, Filtered Selections

Nothing here is sold on basis of highest profit margin, and nothing here is priced to rip you off.
Every piece of equipment on sale has been used and tried by our people; and over many years, we’ve identified and filtered out equipment you’d regret buying, to leave a good selection for your perusal.
Balancing price and features isn’t easy, and our crew’s here to help you make a truly informed choice. It doesn’t matter if you’re new, or a seasoned pro. If it’s worth putting on display, we probably have it.

We’re so dedicated about the way we run our retail that we have a dedicated retail agent to secure distributorships for the stuff. Translated: Great prices, original equipment (no fakes or cheap copies here), and intimate knowledge of our equipment.

In fact, if you purchase certain equipment that require additional training and guidance to help you unleash their full features, we’ll provide a complimentary pool training session so you can get it right; notably, Halcyon BCD + Jetfins combination.

Ecology
Act.

A strong supporter of Project AWARE, Amazing operates according to its golden rules: an ecofriendly operation, ecological messages in our education, awareness from the ground up.

Amazing Dive is probably the only dive operator featuring and supporting varsity-student led projects changing the Asian ecological landscape, step by step. In 2010, the Asia Expedition: Boardwalk featuring students from the Singapore Management University, National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Institute of Management, University of New York (Stern), Cambridge, Harvard and University of Pennsylvania team up to ignite change in the way Asian dive operators and resorts engage their customers in ecological awareness, on the aggregate scale. A bold, fascinating and innovative project, this partnership combines the technical resources of a dive centre with the academic resources of the new, educated generation.

Amazing Dive’s efforts are also recognised and endorsed by Dasmond Koh, a Mediacorp Artiste. An avid diver, active in the diving scene, Dasmond is our local anti-sharkfin ambassador. “Today on, Sharks stay off the menu.”

Culture

Viva la Scuba!

The new shop at Chinatown is entirely pieced together by the crew and customers, reflecting their hopes, dreams and experiences in Scuba Diving- from wooden flooring to designing and sewing together the bean bags in the classroom, to the diving murals on the wall, furnishings, painting, etc. Equipment recommendations and ratings used by staff and crew are scrawled in chalk on the retail walls. A surround sound and projector system (customised and put together by an enthusiastic diver in the A/V industry) supports the occasional gathering, barbeques at the balcony, eco-movie screenings etc.

Did we mention that we’re probably the only dive centre in the world who brews our own beer? Dive Themed beers are designed and brewed by our crew members, not for sale but for free tastings and the occasional party. Check out our nitrogen-charged Narcosis Amber Ale, the annual Christmas 100rads Cherry Ale, the tropical, fragrant 51 Scuba Bright Ale or the Amazing Dive Straits Stout with traditional Pandan and Gula Melaka.

So what’s the whole thing about Amazing Dive then?

Everything. Put together the participative creative energy of crew, customers, and even random passers by and you’ve got the idea of Amazing Scuba – built by divers, for divers, young at heart, vibrant, exciting, safe, and an unforgettable experience. Dive with us, and we want to see you again lingering about the shop having a beer, a good diving book from the shelf=) Even better, join us as crew!

Viva la Scuba!”
