Nautilus Aquatics – Sterling, VA

Scuba diving

Since 1978, Nautilus Aquatics by Diventures has been serving dive customers in every city from Sterling to Washington DC. Whether you’re traveling from Leesburg, Fairfax, Alexandria, or another neighboring town, you can easily find our scuba training facility south of Dulles Town center and Park View High School. Our swim school is located off VA-28 at the intersection of Atlantic Blvd and Church Rd. We have the longest history of training safe divers and providing outstanding service that goes above and beyond other dive shops in DC.

Our facility

Nautilus Aquatics is a dive shop with more than just ‘gear’. They pride themselves on having the best instructors, staff and leadership. It isn’t about the number of divers they certify, but rather the quality of those divers. Nautilus is equipped with whatever you need to support your diving style (recreational divers, specialty enthusiasts, professionals, etc). They are not a one-size-fits-all shop. They tailor all equipment recommendations to fit your needs.
