Lancaster Scuba Center

“From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.”

- Jacques Yves Cousteau, Father of Scuba

History

The Lancaster Scuba Center was established in 1993. Founder John Walker built his business upon two very important pillars.

The first of these pillars is a constant adherence to the pursuit of safety. By providing thorough diver educational development, professional gear servicing, and the pinnacle of quality merchandise, Lancaster Scuba Center ensures the highest standards of safety in the sport of Scuba Diving.

The Lancaster Scuba Center is also involved in an unending mission to protect the environmental and historical riches the underwater world has to offer. Every member of the Lancaster Scuba Center’s Staff fosters a common respect for the diverse biological beauty of the seas and the pieces of shared human history that lie below the waves.

The second pillar upon which Lancaster Scuba Center was constructed is John’s wish for every person to be afforded the opportunity to experience the pure joy and exhilaration that comes from time spent in the underwater world. We at the Lancaster Scuba Center strive to ensure that every person, from the beginning snorkeler to the most advanced Scuba Diver is experiencing all the fun that the underwater realm has to offer.

We wish to bring everyone, of all diversities, into contact with the unending discovery, unparalleled beauty, and unimaginable fun that is to be experienced in the rivers, lakes, and seas of planet earth.
