8th Element Diving Logo About 8th Element Diving

We offer scuba diving instruction in the Northwest, based out of Missoula, Montana and Seattle, Washington.

We also organize exciting dive trips around the world that combine learning, diving and fun.

We at 8th Element Diving have a simple philosophy about diving and dive instruction:

  • Diving is fun! We strive to ensure you enjoy every dive experience.
  • We keep our instruction relaxed and concise, while also ensuring that you get what you want out of every course.
  • We are strictly an educational group, not a dive shop, so our focus is improving your dive skills, not selling you gear.
  • We teach in a positive and encouraging style. You'll learn everything you need to know without feeling stressed.
  • We measure our success by improving your competence and happiness. When you take our classes and dive with us you'll discover how enjoyable it is to become a better diver.
  • Diversity is important to us. Our staff has a broad range of life experiences that help us relate to you on many levels, beyond diving.
  • We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you are not happy with our class, let us know prior to receiving your certification, and we will refund your tuition.
