B & W Dive Company












The Advocacies and Inspiration Behind the Company

Our Company History

Bob Henry established B & W Dive Company in Channelview, Texas in 1991. When he passed away in 2005, his daughter, Amber, reopened the scuba shop in May 2009.

The 1940's ranch-style house has been renovated and retrofitted with diving, fishing, and surfing antiques. Located in an industrial area of East Houston and surrounded by large trees and super amazing staff, we are focused on creating a great scuba diving
experience for everyone.


We are advocates for ocean conservation. We encourage people to become more aware of and caring for our ecosystem. We also welcome opportunities to earn your scuba diving businesses and deliver the best service in the scuba diving and travel industry. 

Whether you need swim lessons, scuba diving lessons, free diving, spearfishing equipment, or just a scuba tank filled, this is the
scuba shop for you.
