We want to buy your used and unwanted scuba equipmentContact us

We at the Diver’s Emporium have developed a national database of dive shops and instructors who are interested in used and discontinued gear for rental and training. So we always have a need for your gear and we will pay top dollar for it. When you send in your old gear to us, a representative will call you back with a price offer. Credit can be applied towards new equipment, or you may be paid in cash. We guarantee your satisfaction! If you are not satisfied with our offer, we will send the gear back to you at our expense.

Free pick-up of your used equipment

To make it as easy as possible to trade-in your old equipment, simply eMail us a short description of the items you have, include your name and the address (Street, city, ST & Zip) where the equipment can be picked up, and we will arrange for a free pick up of the merchandise. You can also contact our Trade & Used department via our Toll Free number (800) 637-6880 ext. 2313 for this free pick-up service. If a deal is not made, we will return the merchandise to you fully insured at our expense
