About: Black Hills Aquatic Adventures


What happens when you take an ocean-loving former Coast Guard guy (ocean lifeguard, rescue swimmer and Navy diver) and plop him into the beautiful but land-locked Black Hills of South Dakota? Black Hills Aquatic Adventures happens.

Husband and wife team Jim Wallace and Julie Hallstrom opened this Rapid City-based dive shop in 2016, taking pride in offering quality equipment and safe, comfortable training. NAUI’s definition of diving is “dive safety through education,” and with this motto in mind, Jim and his staff combine safety and fun into an adventure for a lifetime.

Jim has been a NAUI instructor for 23 years and a NAUI Instructor Trainer for 19 years. He is also a paramedic and has experience training emergency medical personnel as well as community health courses for divers through DAN and for professionals/laypeople through American Heart Association.

We love the water, and we love to help others discover the beauty and serenity of our aquatic world.
