About us

Where giggles and goggles unite!

The Dive Shop was acquired by Diventures in 2022 after 30 years of serving divers in the Memphis area. Diventures has expanded our offerings and relaunched our swim program. We teach Swim Schools International (SSI) curriculum to help you go from shore explorer to underwater adventurer. Our SSI-certified teachers make swimming fun, safe, and comfortable. We provide individualized instruction and goals to each swimmer so everyone learns the skills they need to advance.

Whether you’re just starting or want to brush up on your skills, Diventures offers a variety of classes to help you become a more confident swimmer.

Choosing the right class is key to success. We offer a free trial lesson with:

  • One-on-one time with one of our certified teachers and your child in our pool under your supervision.
  • An assessment of your child’s swim skill level so he or she can be placed in the right class.
  • A chance to talk to the teacher about your child’s skill level and recommendations.
  • An opportunity to address concerns, answer questions and discuss swimming goals.

Call us at 901.763.3483 or send us an email and we’ll schedule a trial at your convenience.
