Who we are

Choo Choo Diving and Aquatic Center is the premier provider of swim and scuba training and experience-based adventures for youth and adults. Our courses enrich lives through challenging and personally rewarding activities and the confidence gained through quality education.

Our facility was custom designed to provide the perfect learning environment. You are invited to seek a new challenge, learn to swim or scuba dive, travel to a new destination, or learn an advanced diving skill. Our courses change lives and provide new perspective.

We hope that you will share our passion for the aquatic world and our desire to protect the oceans for future generations. Many of our students have been inspired to make a career change. Our swim and scuba instructor trainers can even certify you to teach and share the aquatic realm with others.

What we do

 1. We Certify Divers

Learning to dive is almost as much fun as diving itself! Diving is an adventure sport and to dive safely, you must have the necessary knowledge, skills, life support equipment and experience. You also need a “divers licence” known as a “C-card”. Our expert instructors will prepare you for a lifetime of fun underwater!

2. We Train Swimmers

The Chattanooga area has an abundance of lakes, rivers, and streams to enjoy water sports. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death for children under the age of 15 and swimming is one of the most important life skills.  Our instructors are passionate about teaching both kids and adults to swim and safely enjoy the water.
