About Us

Southern Ohio Diving Academy, a Scuba Schools International (SSI) Diamond Instructor Training Center. We take pride in making sure our customers walk away happy. SODA has a choice of training locations, and a large and experienced staff of Instructors to meet your needs. We realize that new divers have many, many questions that need answering. We will answer those questions and talk to you about Equipment, Classes orTrips all day long. That's what we're here for...you.

SODA believes it's not only our job to make you feel right at home in our store, but in the water as well. We take immense pride in knowing that every diver we certify is a safe diver who is comfortable in the water.

SODA also offers a large in-house inventory. After all, if we don't have the item in stock, how can we sell it to you? Masks, snorkels, fins, computers, regulators, swim gear, bags, watches, dive accessories...you have to stop in to see just how much we have in stock. And if you ever have a problem with an item, SODA works hard to do right by you so you'll keep coming back to us!

And if you need to get away from it all, we feel that SODA offers the most exciting diving trips you'll find from any dive center...ANYWHERE. Our trips have been featured in the Dayton Daily News more than once. And they are affordable. We are out of the country every other month and promise if you go on one trip with us...you'll be spoiled for life.

Come in and visit us at 3351 E. Stroop Road in Kettering. We're sure you'll notice the difference at SODA. We are told at least once a week by new customers that they really appreciate the way we do business. Well, we do business this way because we appreciate you!

Thanks for your business,
