Paradise Dive Center or PDC is a family owned and run business that has been open in Paradise California for over 14 years. During that time we have established a reputation for going the extra mile for our customers.
We are a full service SCUBA center offering a great variety of gear, training, and services. PDC offers a wide selection of high quality dive gear at reasonable prices. We currently stock over 30 lines of equipment. Our fully trained staff is able to answer any gear questions you may have.
As of February of this year, we also stock a full range of mining supplies and metal detectors for the ambitious or weekend prospector. Come in and see what we can offer to you.
We have 3 instructors on site everyday, including one of the only full time female instructors in the North State. We also have several affiliate instructors who work through our store. What this means for you is that we are able to work with your schedule. With SCUBA classes of any level there is no pass or fail. We understand that people learn at their own pace and comfort levels are different for everyone. That's why we don't set a time limit on your learning experience. How ever long it takes, if you're willing and able to continue we will work with you until you complete your training.

Who we are
Duane Meyer: I have been a recreational diver since 1966. I have been an instructor for about 25 years. I am now an instructor trainer evaluator and teach all levels of recreational diving. I am also a level 4 instructor with the Public Safety Diving Association. Through the PSDA I teach all levels of public safety diving, from shore support to instructor level 4.
Bob Meyer: I have been with PDC for over 11 years now both as the sales force and as a SCUBA instructor. I was originally SCUBA certified in 1992 while living in Northern Idaho. Since that time I have advanced through the ranks and have attained my Instructor Card with IDEA. Besides helping with in house sales, teaching classes, and my duties of webmaster for this site, I also run a small game store in one corner of the dive shop. It makes for a very fun and full workday.
