Dive Center Training TankFacilities and Capabilities

Opened in 1989, the Center includes offices, dive equipment repair and storage areas,a training tank (30 feet high by 15 feet wide), and three fully-functional hyperbaric chambers (84", 60" and 42" diameters). Gas systems consist of a low pressure air system for chamber operations and surface-supplied diving, plus high pressure air and Nitrox systems for scuba diving. Several boats, ranging in size from 14 to 26 feet in length, are available to support diving operations in Lake Washington, Lake Union and Puget Sound.

An L-shaped staging pier partially encloses a 30-foot deep training basin in Lake Washington, with deeper depths (over 200 feet) located within one mile of the Center, providing excellent facilities for open-water training of divers.
