    Would like to suggest International Diving Centre, they have an extensive online scuba store and they are a local dive shop as well so you know you get real divers when you have a question about the gear.

    Love that I can order anything on-line and have it within 15min, love that they have a pool in the shop that I can try my gear in, and mostly love that they are only 2mi from my house.

    +1 for DGE. "Good service" is a understatement in my experience. They go out of their way to help you get what YOU want.

    Northeast Scuba Supply is awesome. John and his team are knowledgable from Rec to Tec. Their prices are always very competitive and they Actually have a ton of Stock which has been a problem for me with other retailers.

    Diveseekers.com is both online and our local LDS.

    In my inexperienced opinion, scuba.com seems pretty great price wise...

    Why do you feel that you have to buy everything online? Look around and see what is available locally. Local dive shops have a wide variety of services. I found one locally that has great service, a nice variety of products to choose from and at competitive prices. We need to support local dealers or they will go away. There is a town north of me that has lost all four of their dive shops. People are now having to travel further to get air fills, classes and warranty service. These are all services that you can not get online. There are some shops that are not very good and there are some that are very good. If you find one where you live that you like, then support it. There have been 10,000 small dive shops around the counrty that have gone out of business in the past 4 years. If this trend continues our sport will be in deep trouble.
