Michael Shoup is a long-time Pierre resident with a head for business and a passion for scuba diving. So when he had the opportunity to combine business with pleasure, he dove in. In 2021, he acquired the only dive shop in Central South Dakota.
Located just minutes from the open water of the Missouri River, Oahe Dive Shop is pleased to offer Central South Dakota divers a top-notch experience on the top side of the dive. We are an SSI certified dive center offering SCUBA certifications, a complete selection of gear, tank refills, and service. Visit our showroom and get outfitted for your next dive.
Your life depends on the quality of your scuba gear. We’re proud to carry ScubaPro because, “Deep down, you want the best.”
For your own safety and enjoyment, you need equipment that fits correctly and seals properly. We can heartily recommend the products we sell because we’ve used them. We can show you how your wetsuit and mask should fit because we’ve used ScubaPro’s premium products on our own diving excursions.
We offer a full line of ScubaPro diving gear in our store for men, women, and children.
- Cruiser Vest
- Currents Vest
- Rash Guards
- Weight Belts
- Dive flags
- Buoys and much more.
The Missouri River offers fantastic opportunities for spearfishing. We stock a wide selection of band-powered and pneumatic spearguns by Salvimar, a leader in the design and construction of spearfishing equipment for over 40 years.
We’ll set up your new speargun or help you make repairs on the one you’ve been using.
- Pneumatic spearguns
- Band-powered spearguns
- Replacement bands
- Replacement components
- Dive flags
If you’re not quite ready to take the scuba or spearfishing plunge, you can rent your gear from us while you test the waters. We have everything you’ll need to complete your scuba diving certification courses, take an open-water dive, or learn to spearfish.
Call (605) 280-9997 to reserve your equipment.
