“I've been diving and teaching at A-1 since 2007. We are like a second family, and some of my best friends have come from this group. Come for the diving, stay for the people.”

"The lessons offered were easy to understand, and the mentors were very kind. As an individual that has been afraid of water for a good portion of my life, I got my confidence back to start diving again. I have some excellent photos from my dives and the memories I made will be with me forever. Pumped up for the diving trip in '15! get your reservations NOW!!!"

"Awesome staff, fun classes, great trips. Overall the best dive shop in Northeast Philly area. Good place to buy gear too - the staff will give you recommendations and pricematch anything if you find it for less on LeisurePro or wherever."

"Anyone who is looking for diving equipment or a place to be certified, need look no further than A-1 Diving. The owner Alan is a true diving pro as well as the rest of the staff. They really know their stuff and love telling you about various dive excursions whenever they have a chance. Also great for world class dive vacations especially North Carolina with the sharks and wrecks. They stock the best equipment. A-1 really works with you to make it one of the best experiences ever."

"Just completed dry suit certification at A1 Scuba with my son. Alan and all the staff did a great job teaching both the course and passing along their experience. Dives where packed with information and support from the great dive staff, plus a ton of fun. Highly recommend for any training needs. Can’t wait for our next class in the spring. Also purchased all our gear from A1. They have a great selection, and worked with us to find the right gear at a good price. Have looked at other local dive shops, but nobody does a better job getting to know us and finding the equipment to meet our needs and budget. Great local dive shop."

"My friends have been diving for years and I always wanted to do it but was afraid do to my Asthma. I finally decided to take the plunge and after visiting A-1 Scuba in Trevose I finally decided they were the ones for me. I called and explained my issue with Asthma to Alan. He made me feel comfortable in his explanation of Asthma and diving and asked me to stop by and pick up a medical form for my doctor to fill out. So I decided to visit the shop. I meet Alan and Jen on my first visit and they explained everything about the program and made me feel very comfortable.

"As a former employee of A-1 who continued training with them and became an OW Instructor, I really enjoyed customer interaction as well as tackling training issues and repairing equipment. The Manager, Jennifer Mayfield, became a close friend and when I did leave, my high regard for her remained intact. I hope to continue diving with A-1's excellent staff and enjoying great camaraderie with all my scuba diving friends who still frequent the shop."
