Truxton & Lavonne Terkla started TL SEA DIVING in October 1996 in order to fill a specific need in the outdoor recreation market. Their philosophy of offering complete customer care & service (TLC) brought about the name “TL SEA”. Focusing on proper diver education, they improved the diving industry by setting the bar higher to create highly-trained, safer & more confident divers.

Since its inception, TL SEA DIVING has been regarded as one of the finest training facilities in the Northwest. They are known for a higher standard of care and developing such close relationships with their customers and Staff, that they consider them ‘family’.

In December 2001, TL SEA DIVING moved into a new locating in Des Moines (South Seattle) becoming the only PADI 5-Star Instructor Development Center in that area. Through continued customer service & outstanding training, TL SEA has been successful in consistently certifying over 300 students per year in a variety of diving and safety courses.

I’ve only been to this shop when I’ve needed to rent extra tanks, but they made a good impression.

Great Dive Shop. They care and it Shows. They go the extra mile. There travel program is a must. They research and coordinate the best trips. All you need to do is show up at airport and be ready to have fun & an amazing experience. They always have so much more than diving on the trips, eco adventures, Cultural experiences etc, Things you would not know about or do on your own.
