Our History in a Nutshell

In the 1950s, despite growing interest in diving, there was nowhere in Seattle to get dive-training or supplies. Divers had to rely on mail order catalogs for all their gear. Local skin-diving legend Gary Keffler – champion sport diver and professional commercial diver, decided to fill this need and turned his love of diving into a Seattle institution – Underwater Sports. Gary built a one-stop shop for all things diving: professional equipment, superb training, and underwater adventure.

History

Today, Underwater Sports continues to provide phenomenal dive-training and products to clients worldwide including, 1st responders such as local police, fire departments and harbor patrol.
