A new dive shop has arrived to patch the hole left by the failure of Smokey Point Dive Center and the Underwater Sports closing of their Everett Washington store.
We stopped in for a look and found Evergreen Diver Service to be a very friendly, clean and moderately sized dive shop. Their main brands are Aqualung, Bare, and XS scuba. They have a divers lounge area and we found a few divers chatting about the days diving. “Joe” stated their goal was to focus fully on customers service. He wants to mold the store based on what the divers want and not on what the shop decides for them. He said they will even carry your tanks to and from your car if you prefer. They fill nitrox on demand, a rare service on the main Seattle corridor. They have a clean and well laid out compressor room that inspires confidence that you will get good gas (see http://scubagadget.com/?p=746). Their compressor maintenance log is visible and they test and post air certifications quarterly. Overall, we were very impressed. The Evergreen Diver Service, LLC shop is located at 4601 Evergreen, Everett WA (next to Mikies Burgers) – 425-512-8811.
