The Dive Otter

For Chicagoland Divers

Being a diver in the Chicagoland area can be challenging, especially for introverts looking to navigate dive opportunities and community engagement. Here are some starting resources that have personally helped me.

There are over 10 dive shops in Chicagoland, ensuring you'll find what you need locally. These resources are not exhaustive but reflect my firsthand experiences. As I continue to explore and expand my own diving horizons, I'll update with more recommendations.

If you have questions about getting involved or simply want a dive buddy, feel free to reach out via social media or email at [email protected].
