We at Under Water Works love Scuba diving, but more than that we love diving in the Pacific Northwest. We're passionate about diving here, and about the amazing life that thrives in our colder water. Our goal at the shop is to introduce you to a world that you've probably never seen before, and to encourage you in your diving skills and continued education so that you can explore as much of it as possible.

Dear Under Water Works Customers,
We have made the difficult decision to dramatically reduce our hours due to the COVID-19 crisis, and the new order instated by Governor Kate Brown. Until further informed, we will have appointment only hours, which must be scheduled ahead of time. This will allow us to have adequate time between customers to clean and sanitize, to keep ourselves and our community safe and healthy.
These hours are intended for those with equipment that is at Under Water Works for Service, as well as those wishing to drop equipment off for service. Regular sales will be available via phone and will be shipped or can be arranged to be picked up.
Under Water Works staff will be available by phone and email during regular business hours: 10-6 Monday-Friday, and 10-4 Saturday.
We look froward to the end of these restrictions, and to getting back underwater with you! Thank you for being a member of this community, and supporting your local small businesses. We appreciate you more than you'll ever know.
Stay safe and healthy,
Under Water Works Staff

Under Water Works was opened in 1975, by Jerry and Hilde Rood. They first began by teaching classes at Tigard High School, and opened the retail shop shortly afterwards. Hilde owned Under Water Works for forty years, and sold it in 2015 to Gretchen Slack.
At Under Water Works, we are are passionate about making your diving experience as good as it can be! We love scuba diving, and are excited to share it with you. Whether you're interested in learning to dive, continue your diving education, purchase equipment, or get information about dive travel, we would love to share any information we have with you!
We believe in an honest and straight forward approach to diving. Our PADI Instructors will teach you the information you need to be a safe, and independent diver. If you're looking to purchase equipment, we will strive to find what will work best for you, and the type of diving you love.
Come in, and meet our staff, and check out our shop!
