Unless you've been living in a cave (and with quarantine it may have felt that way), you have heard this is "the new normal" a thousand times. But what does this mean for One World Dive & Travel?
  • Per CDC and Divers Alert Network guidelines, we've stepped up our cleaning and disinfecting routines for the store and our equipment.
  • When you walk in you'll see us wearing masks. We're trying our best to smile through our eyes, so please know this is as awkward for us as it is for you.
  • Spreading out students in class, pool workouts and customers throughout the store.
  • Temperature checks and COVID releases prior to any class or pool use.
What does this mean for you as a diver or snorkeler?
  • If you don't already, now may be the time to own your own snorkel or dive equipment so you know it hasn't been used by someone else. Mask, snorkel and regulators should be at the top of your list.
  • Spitting in masks is a thing of the past - purchase some mask defog.
  • If you are going to rent gear, many operations are requiring you to provide your own mouthpiece.
  • There are two types of divers in the world - those that pee in their wetsuit, and those that lie about it. We have wetsuits starting at $79.95.

Hello friends!
We can honestly say, we CANNOT WAIT to see you all soon! We are very excited to be opening our doors this weekend, and are ready to teach classes, service your equipment, outfit the family or plan your escape to an island destination in the near future. 

Opening comes with a new set of guidelines, but we've been preparing the store for our imminent return. We’ve been working hard to keep our staff employed, our techs well trained and our travel staff accessible to you during this crazy time. Time spent cleaning and disinfecting, tuning equipment and freshening the store has also kept us busy during these crazy times. We couldn’t do it without your loyalty and support, so thank you for walking through this time of distance and isolation with us!

We are still offering curbside pickup as an option, so if you prefer a contact-less interaction, please call us at 303-220-8282 when you arrive and we will be happy to assist you.

Your One World Dive Family

As a reminder on current Tri-County and Colorado health recommendations:
  • Maintain at least 6' of physical distance between yourself and our employees
  • Please wear a face mask
  • If you are feeling ill, please stay home

April 27, 2020

WE ARE OPEN! (with caveats. Keep reading for details)

What a long, strange trip it's been, or at least that's how it feels. We are so thankful Coloradans have been staying safe and at home during this time, but I'm sure, like us, you are ready to travel somewhere besides the living room!

Per the latest Colorado Safer at Home, plus the Tri-County Health amended Stay At Home order, we are offering curbside pickup starting today. Our store staff will be available during regular store hours, seven days a week. Upon your arrival, please call the store at 303-220-8282 and someone will come out to assist you. To follow both state and county guidelines, please adhere to the following:

  • Maintain at least 6' of physical distance between yourself and our employees
  • Please wear a face mask
  • If you are feeling ill, please stay home
  • Between Monday, April 27th and Friday, May 8th, please do not enter the store. Fines of up to $5,000, 18 months in jail, plus loss of our business license, are all possible consequences that we'd like to avoid
Starting Saturday, May 9th, our retail floor should be open and in-person classes resuming.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we all work through these new social interactions together. We look forward to seeing you all soon!

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have all been watching as the situation evolves, sometimes on an hourly basis. Like most of you, we have felt the same emotions of fear, anxiety, frustration in watching our plans get ruined and finally, acceptance.

In light of recent changes in Colorado’s response to the outbreak, and in our best effort to protect both our staff and clients, we are temporarily closing the store to support efforts to reduce the spread.

Our travel department will remain operating from their living room couches to assist with your existing travel plans that may be impacted by island or operator suspensions. If you have an upcoming trip planned with us, we’ll be in contact to discuss options available considering the ever-changing travel landscape. And if dreaming of your next dive vacation is the escape from reality you need right now, our agents can help! You can reach them via email at

If you need something to fill your day, now is a great time to start your next class. PADI eLearning is available to you 24 hours a day, allowing you to start your class from the comfort of your home. The Open Water, Advanced and Rescue classes will give you a head start on the program, with class and pool work currently set to resume in mid to late April. If you’d like to take the Enriched Air Nitrox class, we are offering the classroom session virtually, allowing you to complete most of the course with one of our instructors through video conference. You can purchase the PADI eLearning for all these classes on our website at

We will be checking our email daily through our main email,, or ping us on social media. We’ll be active online, hoping to interact with you until we see you again at the shop.

Until then, let’s all do our part to combat the spread. Stay home. Stay safe. Be smart.
