About Us

"We'll Change Your Life!"


Truxton & Lavonne Terkla started TL SEA in October 1996, in order to fill a specific need in the outdoor recreation market. Their philosophy of offering total customer service & care (TLC) brought about the name “TL SEA”, as they dealt with “SEA diving”. By concentrating on proper diver education, they felt they could improve the diving industry and create safer divers.

Since its inception, nothing has been truer about TL SEA. Not only have they developed close relationships with their customers, but also with vendors, enabling them to always be on the leading edge of advances within the industry.

We currently support such lines as AquaLung, Atomic, DUI, Suunto, TUSA, SeaSoft, Ikelite, Underwater Kinetics, DeepSee, Intova, Whites, Light & Motion, Pinnacle and OMS, to name just a few.

TL SEA has trained thousands of scuba divers in a variety of courses, outfitting them with high-quality equipment at reasonable prices. TL Sea Diving attributes our success to truly caring for people, giving them time to learn; we emphasize safety & thorough training to ensure our students are both confident & competent in their diving abilities.

All of us at TL Sea believe that scuba diving should be “fun” to learn, while providing everyone with the utmost care. Give yourself a chance to “Sea” what we have to offer – you will be introduced to a sport, as well as an organization of professionals who will undoubtedly ‘Change Your Life’!

Please call upon the TL SEA professionals should you have any questions regarding scuba diving, classes, equipment, boat charters or travel.
