J & D Scuba Shop

Share this

J & D Scuba Shop / Travel Club started in 1978 by Jerry & Deb Cummins in the back part of their home. They started the shop due to the needs of the local divers and  not wanting to travel to Buffalo for their diving needs. In 1978 we started out purchasing diving equiptment from another dealer in Buffalo and within 2 years we moved to buying directly from U.S Divers Inc. (Aqua Lung USA). J & D Scuba has grown over the years and has become more than just a small dive shop.  We pride ourselves in being your support system for all your diving needs.
We do local dive trips, underwater photography, exotic dive trips around the world……See some of the amazing footage and photos of their trips on the Facebook Page


These are some of the places we have traveled to over the years;
Panama City Florida, Cozumel Mexico, Belize, Truk Lagoon, Yap, Philippines, Galapagos islands, Palau, Australia, Bonaire, Papua New Guinea, Bahama's and the Solomon Islands
The list is growing every year……..Our Goal is to make sure everyone of our guests has the best experience possible. Our slogon is "You just need to show up and J & D Scuba will take care of everything else"
Come join us on our next trip……

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
