your diving adventure begins here

Learning to SCUBA dive is one of life's greatest joys! More than 70% of the earth's surface is covered by water and what lies beneath is only accessible by SCUBA diving. From the far north kelp forests of Canada to the tropical coral reefs of Indonesia, or the freshwater, sun dappled cenotes of Mexico, scuba diving will allow you to explore all these environments. Dive with otters and harbor seals, view sunken shipwrecks, swim through large overhangs and tunnels formed by coral reef. SCUBA diving is a life changing activity that will redefine how you look at the world.
