Welcome to Joe’s SCUBA Shack

Home of Western Colorado’s
Elite Status PADI Scuba Instructors.

We believe your scuba diving class should be fun and rewarding. Conducted on your schedule and close to home. Whether you are an old salt or new to scuba we offer from beginner to Dive Master and Assistant Instructor. We keep our classes small with no more than 6 students per pool session. We can also come to your home or community pool to offer you the best scuba diving experience on the western slope.

Certification is accomplished in two sessions. Session one is the Pool and Academics. Our pool and academic classes are a home study. You can either read the book at home and answer all of the knowledge review questions or do the PADI eLearning by affiliating with Joe’s Scuba Shack. There will be at least 2 pool sessions and one academic review session. In Grand Junction those are generally Monday evenings at the Orchard Mesa Community Pool. Session two is the Open Water check out dives. Those are generally on a Saturday afternoon and a Sunday morning at the Homestead Crater in Midway Utah. We will make a total of 4 dives. Two each day to finish your certification.

We do require that you have your own mask, snorkel
and fins and we do offer those for purchase.
