Dive Shop ATL was started by a couple of buddies who wanted to share their love of diving with their friends, family and fellow divers. Out of that, Dive Shop ATL was born. Our mission is to make diving fun, exciting, accessible and stress-free!

Be honest, be fair and treat others as you would want to be treated.
