Central Oregon Diving is your one stop shop for certifcation, dive equipment, travel, and scuba adventures.

We are planning ANOTHER trip to Newport to dive the Aquarium on April 20, 2019! Cost to dive aquarium is $249. This includes a 2 tank dive where you dive the Halibut Flats section and feed the sturgeon, and one dive in the sharks and rays tank. This also includes a guide for the dives, a behind the scenes pre-dive tour of the marine life, and an aquarium day pass. Steel Tanks are included also. This is a great COAST dive with unlimited visibility, easy entry and can wave at the spectators! We have a block of rooms reserved for one or two nights at a discounted diver rate. Make a weekend out of it and dive one day and explore one day. When we did this dive in January it was spectacular! Tons to see and lots of great marine life. Feeding the sturgeons was fun and not your basic cold water dive destination. Make a weekend out of this. 

Space is limited so contact us to sign up asap. We can have 12 divers, so space is limited. Don't need to bring tanks but NEED to bring weights along with your dive gear!
