One of the fastest growing and most talked about dive centers in Texas, Sugar Land Dive Center continues to be THE choice of forward-thinking future dive professionals wanting to build successful dive industry careers. Under the direction of PADI Platinum Course Director, Phillip Hetherington and his staff of highly-recognized PADI professionals, a full-slate of professional courses ranging from DiveMaster to Master Scuba Diver Trainer and IDC Staff Instructor are offered on a regular basis.

With two platinum-honored PADI Course Directors on staff, along with five IDC Staff Instructors, Sugar Land Dive Center is ideally-equipped to work with other dive facilities in the region to provide simple and effective referral training.

Hetherington points out that candidates for the Sugar Land Dive Center programs often come from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska and New Mexico.
