At All Things Aquatic—We Love the Water. Diving is our passion, and we can’t wait to share the experience with you. ATA is a small, family-oriented dive center that is committed to promoting the sport of diving for everyone. We stress quality over quantity and spend time with our student helping them to develop into the best divers they can be. We believe that the skills and confidence gained through learning to dive carry over into all aspects of life. Diving can be a transformation experience. We hope that you will join us to experience the wonder and excitement for yourself.


We are a full-service Dive Center offering, PADI, SDI, TDI and HAS certifications. We are located in Pittsburgh, slightly north of Rt. 28 heading towards the North Hills on William Flynn Highway. We serve the tri-state area and beyond–offering quality instruction, gear sales and service, air fills, scuba travel, and much more. We can’t wait to share the underwater world with you! Come experience the difference that diving can make in your life.


Why choose us? We know that you have options available to you when considering where to take lessons, buy gear, or book trips. We appreciate your consideration. What we offer & promise is excellence. We promise that you are important to us. We will take the time to help you, no matter how busy we are. One of the things that makes us special is how much we truly care about each, and every person, that walks through our doors—whether you become a regular customer or not. YOU are the most important part of our day—and our dive. At ATA, you will find more than lessons, air fills, gear, and trips when you visit. Everyone that dives with the center is friendly and eager to share their love of the sport with you. If you are looking for a social outlet–a place to make friends, and people to have fun, and do things with–come visit us! We have a comprehensive travel program with many local and exotic trips planned — as well as non-diving social events and volunteer opportunities.


We do hope that you will join us and become part of our growing dive family.

All Things Aquatic, began over 20 years ago as Washington Scuba Center and was owned by several excellent instructors over the years. Beth took over the helm in 2013, renaming the shop, All Things Aquatic (ATA Dive Center) and moved it to the South Hills Area. While it was a good location, the building often flooded, and traffic was a bear. This past June, we moved the shop to the North Side of town to a drier building in a better location for traffic and parking. The new store is also closer to Beth’s house, pool, and family, which makes balancing career, children, and scuba a little easier. We are so excited about the new location and can’t wait for more folks to come on-board so we can grow!
