Adventure Scuba Company
Big Changes at Adventure Scuba Company
Introducing Nautilus Aquatics


It's official... Adventure Scuba Company has merged with Sterling Silver Scuba in Sterling, VA and the new name of our combined shops is Nautilus Aquatics!

Look for our new logo, brand image and combined website in May-June. Our name is the result of a vote among our customers and students, and literally hundreds of people weighed in.

Here's what's not changing. We will provide the same outstanding customer service, exceptional training, quality merchandise and exciting dive experiences! Now, with two locations for added convenience, and the addition of swim programs to our course offerings, we've doubled our commitment to helping people become active, passionate stewards for the aquatic world.

You can count on Nautilus Aquatics to help you and your family be at home in the ocean, or the swimming pool, with confidence, skill, and safety. We look forward to seeing you in the store and in the water!

Henry, Melissa, Jason and the Nautilus Aquatics team

Monthly Photo

Congratulations to Chris, whose brilliant photo of a red Frogfish hidden among some soft corals is truly beautiful and was taken at Divi Flamingo Bonaire over Thanksgiving .
