We are proud to be Oklahoma’s Dive Shop since 1971.
Gene Frusher’s interest in scuba was sparked by his time in the Navy and he started to pursue the sport in 1954. He picked up equipment from Sears, read the instructions on the way to the lake and dove until it got hard to breathe - the gear didn’t include a pressure gauge. In the years that followed, Gene established himself as a pioneer in the dive industry by opening Gene’s Aqua Pro in 1971, teaching Oklahoma’s first recreational divers and founding the Oklahoma Highway Patrol’s first dive team.
In 2014, Gene handed over the reigns to John Cotherman in favor of retirement, though he still drops by to mentor John on occasion. John was certified at Gene’s Aqua Pro back in the 80s and has had a lifelong love of diving. The shop might look a little different than it did under Gene’s watch, but his stories and scuba legacy live strong. We are proud to be Oklahoma’s Dive Shop since 1971.
