Your local dive shop needs your help. In today's economy, many dive shops are suffering financially or going out of business. Selling dive instruction and trips does not pay well. In most cases dive instructors are working for very little money, purely out of passion for diving. The majority of money divers pay towards a diving certification or trip goes to covering expenses, such as pool fees, utilities, maintenance of rental gear, transportation, and certification fees. How do dive shops stay in business? By selling gear. And before you say gear sold in dive shops is too expensive, consider what you stand to lose by cutting out your local dive shop and purchasing your gear online.
Amber Waves Diving Co. started in 2008, with a vision to create a dive club atmosphere where divers of all levels could come to find friendly smiles, dive conversation, great training and gear at reasonable prices.
The original owners knew that putting a shop in Augusta, KS and not in the middle of metro Wichita would create a difficult marketing task.

Our business philosophy soon paid off and we had to say bye to our friends in Augusta and said hello to our friends in Wichita. We re-located the store in 2013 to 307 S. Greenwich Road. We have stuck with our core philosophy to continue to strive to make each customer feel that they are part of the Amber Waves family. In 2014 our hard work came to fruition when we became the largest PADI Training Center in Wichita. ... [ Read more ]
