Divers Market has partnered with PADI (Professional Asociation of Diving Instructors) to provide world class training to each of our students. Most programs start with an e-Learning program that's hosted by the PADI website. Once completed, you'll move on to a practical session that can be booked directly with Divers Market. These sessions offer hands-on training from the area's top instructors at convenient locations throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Private / Group Lessons available

Training sessions are typically held in groups of 4-6, but Private Lessons and Group Lessons are also available. Information regarding course materials / equipment rental is included in the class descriptions listed below.

As a non-diving spouse, I always feel as welcome in the shop and on the trips as though I were an experienced diver. Diver’s Market always makes me feel as though I’m part of the family. My needs as a snorkeler are treated with the same attention and care as if I were a trained diver.

The reason generations have been faithful to Divers Market is simple Customer Service ( you won't get that on the internet). Wayne and his staff provide the very best in service, sales, training and dive trip planning. Wayne truly loves what he's doing and it shows.

Kelly L, Bonaire

So very fortunate to have traveled the world on so many Diving Adventures that have defined me today as the person and scuba diver that I could only hope to be.

Philip L, Framingham MA

On a side note the one thing that always comes to mind when I think about you and all the dives we have done together over the years is that no matter what happens the first thing you say after is THAT WAS A GREAT DIVE. I can't thank you enough for friendship over the years you are a very special guy and I look forward to the next GREAT DIVE!

If you are wondering where to dive next, Wayne at Divers Market is a great resource. He has first hand knowledge of dozens of great dive locations the world over, and there’s a good chance he will be able to match you with just the right place. It’s always a joy to drop in the store and chat about diving with someone who is such a real expert.

Keith R, Cape Cod MA

I have been going to Divers Market for the past 10 years since I received my first certification from them.  Everyone there is an expert at diving with significant experience and a great passion for diving. And, they are all so friendly, they make you feel part of their "dive family"!

Tim S, Plymouth MA

In all of our dealings over the years I have always felt that Wayne was always putting our interests first. He wasn’t just recommending what would be best for his bottom line.
