Visit the Caribbean or the Pacific - you won't even have to worry about the details. Ask our travel customers about our service.

Unlike the high pressure sales stores, Aquatic World keeps the customer's needs as our primary concern. We are proud to offer the dive industries premier line of equipment from Aqua Lung, Suunto, Bare, Oceanic, Sherwood, Henderson, DUI, and Zeagle. Aquatic World does more than sell the gear you need: we also keep that gear in new condition with our expert staff.

Aquatic World has become the standard in Central New York for quality training, quality equipment and dive travel planning at reasonable prices. You could let Aquatic World be your New York diving expert... or you could pay more and get less.
