Rental Services

A-1 Rental Equipment is serviced EACH & EVERY time it is returned, unlike most facilities that service their rental gear every 3 to 6 months. Performance of each piece is analyzed and any needed maintenance, no matter how minor, is performed and logged before we rent it out again.

We also give you tips and help you set up your rental gear. When you pick up your rental equipment, one of our professional staff will take the time to install the equipment on a scuba tank and review the care and use of your rental gear.

Best of all, we’re reasonably priced! We offer package pricing for multiple items, such as a BCD, Regulator and computer package.

Beginner Scuba Diving

We’re proud to host the best scuba diving lessons Denver has to offer. Whether you’re interested in scuba diving for beginners or Denver scuba certification, we can tailor the experience to your comfort level. We use a two-step process to make sure every one of our clients gets all the training and information they need to succeed.

In the first step, we give you information to study independently. You’ll learn all the basics using the MydiveSSI app and taking classes in our nationally ranked facility to get the hang of skills, like controlling buoyancy and doing buddy dives. Moving on to step two means testing what you’ve learned with open water dives. You can even complete your first two open water dives at the Denver Downtown Aquarium!

Travel Services

Who isn’t up for a cool trip to an exotic location with a group of like-minded fellow divers? From St. Lucia to Cozumel to the Solomon Islands, the opportunities are endless at A-1 Scuba & Travel Aquatics Center. Each trip is led by an experienced diving professional.

Led by a Master Diver Trainer, who is a certified first aid and CPR Instructor and DAN Diving Emergency Management Provider. It’s an adventure you will not want to miss! We minimize the details and maximize the fun.
