Gaspar’s Dive N Board opened in 2007. The shop is named after the well-known Spanish pirate, José Gaspar, also known as Gasparilla from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. With the closest access to the Gulf of Mexico waters, their location is a natural fit for all divers. Gaspar’s is a full service dive shop and offers the best scuba classes at the best prices through NAUI. Joe and Stephanie Chlebowski became the new proud owners of Gaspar’s in August 2010.
Joe and Stephanie frequented the shop as customers before taking over. It was their passion for diving that sparked their interest in purchasing the shop and making it their own. While Joe enjoys reef diving and spear fishing, Stephanie enjoys underwater photography and occasionally fossil hunting. Although diving in local waters is their favorite, they also love to take trips to Florida’s east coast and the Florida Keys as well as places like Cozumel and Roatan.
They’re always looking for new dive buddies to accompany them on adventures like diving Epcot’s Living Seas Aquarium or out on some of the local wrecks and ledges our area has to offer. Gaspar’s Dive Shop is not only the largest dive shop in the area but also offers snorkel gear, skateboards and equipment, and skim boards. They carry a large variety of brands at competitive prices. Their friendly and knowledgeable staff is eager to meet new people and committed to helping meet their customer’s needs. So stop in sometime to meet everyone there and discover what they have to offer!
