Diventures Announces Transformational Expansion with Acquisition of Atlanta-based SeaVentures
Two industry leaders combine forces to help more people safely enjoy the water.
Omaha, NE (June 11, 2021) — Nebraska-based Diventures, the nation’s largest and fastest-growing swim and scuba center, announced a transformational expansion, with the acquisition of Atlanta, Georgia based SeaVentures.
“We’re excited our aggressive growth plans brought us to the southeast and to Atlanta.” says Dean Hollis, founder of Diventures. “I have always had tremendous admiration and respect for how Beverly, Wyatt, Chelsea, and the SeaVentures team built such a successful business over the last 30 years, by putting the customer first. I was thrilled when Wyatt, Beverly, and Chelsea wanted to talk about combining forces, as SeaVentures is an industry icon. Working together, we are now able to build on our shared dedication to safety and fun in the water and help many more people find a safe and deeper connection with the water.”
“We’ve always believed if you take care of your customer, the rest will take care of itself.” says Wyatt Foster, who founded SeaVentures, with his wife Beverly, in 1990. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the alignment of values between SeaVentures and Diventures. It feels like divine intervention, because Diventures is as hyper-focused on customer care, quality education and safety as we are.”

“This strategic expansion represents a significant move for us. First, by adding scale and impact to better serve our customers and also by establishing a new geographic presence,” says Will Munroe, General Manager of Diventures. “Having Chelsea continue as Manager, and Wyatt and Beverly available for advice and counsel, ensures we won’t miss a beat, and will only get better.”
