Fintastic - Branford's New Full Service Dive Shop
Posted on April 24th, 2015

Fin-Tastic Diving is Branford’s new full service dive shop and dive travel experts!

While the shop is a new business venture, owner and scuba instructor Steve Hager is no stranger to the southern New England dive scene, having certified hundreds of new divers since he began teaching in 1996. Opening his own dive shop has been a lifelong dream for Steve, and he sees the Branford area as an ideal location for Fin-Tastic Diving’s new home. Steve is an SDI IT Staff Instructor, and holds additional instructor ratings from PDIC. He is also planning to offer technical diving instruction through TDI in the future.

The shop features easy and convenient access from interstate 95 at exit 55 in Branford. Fin-Tastic Diving is an authorized dealer for several manufacturers such as Cressi, Tusa, XS Scuba, and xDeep. In addition to high quality dive gear, the Cressi line of products is unique in their offering of a wide variety of watersports clothing and equipment for young children.

Whether you need new or continuing dive education, air and nitrox fills or equipment service, or help and guidance with new equipment purchases, Fin-Tastic Diving is ready for all your diving needs!

Steve’s wife Bea is the diving travel coordinator for Fin-Tastic Diving and also assists Steve as an SDI Divemaster. Prior to opening the shop, Fin-Tastic Diving has previously run group dive trips to Bonaire and Little Cayman, and is currently running an exciting all-inclusive trip to Grenada this fall. If you prefer local diving, then the shop is well equipped for all of your cold water diving needs as well. Steve and Bea at Fin-Tastic Diving are excited to offer their services and wealth of knowledge and experience to Branford and the surrounding communities. Like their sign says, “Take the Dive - Sea a New World!”
