Welcome to Patriot Dive Center - Wilmington, NC's premiere PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center

Patriot Dive Center was founded with the belief that Scuba Diving is an adventure that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy.

Some divers love Scuba because of the new experiences it opens up to them, while others thrive on the endless challenges and rewards that await them. But for some it's the magical therapeutic nature of the underwater world.

Along with making Scuba available to anyone looking to begin a new adventure, Patriot Dive Center works with the Wounded Warrior Project and Patriots for Disabled Divers to bring the joy of Scuba to our Nation's Heroes.

In addition to world class scuba diving training, we have a full retail store for all your scuba gear, snorkeling gear, and spear fishing equipment. We have an on site service department for repairs and maintenance. If you don't have your own gear, you can always rent from our supply of the best dive rental equipment in North Carolina.

Lastly, we specialize in dive travel with many trips planned throughout the year. Our trips are all inclusive and specialty courses are available on request for most of our trips at a reduced rate.

At Patriot Dive Center we have a simple philosophy; we are not out to be the fastest or the cheapest, we are out to be the best.
