Get Your Feet Wet.

Helping you sustainably engage in scuba diving and snorkeling and beyond with extensive reviews, videos, and products. 

What is OtterAquatics?

We are an online community for scuba divers and ocean lovers to learn about how to sustainably engage with our beloved big blue. Whether getting your feet wet for the first time, completing your divemasters, or looking to chase corals and ocean life across the globe, we’ve done the research for you.

Our community has been built by the passion of our founder, Austin, who was initially captivated by the ocean after making his first reef tank at the young age of 12. Four years later, and only 16 years old, he travelled to Hawaii for his PADI Scuba Certification. Now an experienced divemaster who has ventured to some of the best dive locations across the globe, Austin is currently working in the dive industy in South Florida, awaiting his next big dive trip.
