Our family owned/operated store was founded in 1968, as Cape Cod Skin Diving School of Fairhaven by Bob Mercer, Sr. In the early 80's, the store moved to Pope's Island & was re-named Whaling City Sea, Ski, & Outdoor Sports. Bob Mercer, Jr. took the helm shortly there after expanding product offerings to include winter sports. Nearly 50 years later, Bob's Sea & Ski is a second-generation brick and mortar store who proudly offers cutting edge dive, snorkel, ski, snowboard, & watersports equipment.
If you live for the outdoors, Bob's Sea & Ski stocks stand up paddleboards, kayaks, SCUBA gear, triathalon wear, ski equipment, snowboard gear, winter sports clothing, summer wear, boat towables, and snorkeling gear. We offer dive certification classes, spearfishing & freediving courses, bus tours, and ski & snowboard lease programs for kids!
