Private Scuba Classes, Its what we do BEST!

Buckeye is Cleveland’s Oldest Dive Store

Experience what makes us different from all the rest

Buckeye’s owner Steve Bowles has a simple philosophy: “We are dedicated to providing the best  SCUBA instruction possible. We define value as personal attention, the highest safety concerns and best quality equipment to learn properly.  Our bar is a notch above the rest and being in business for almost 50 years proves that point.   You only get certified to dive once, so why not get the best training available?” That sentiment echoes that of original owners Paul and Sandy Reynolds, who started the business in 1964.
Classes are designed to teach you under relaxed, enjoyable conditions, and at your learning speed. “Since that time, Buckeye has been a leader in the Northeast Ohio’s SCUBA diving community, certifying and equipping over 9,000 recreational and professional SCUBA divers!
