It's that time of year again! The Torpedo Rays' 20th annual "Treasure Hunt". This is a fund raising event that we will hold on Sept 10th 2017 at Hubbard's Beach, NS. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Children's Trust Fund Charity.
The first 200 participants get a Free commemorative T-Shirt. There is also a Free BBQ and beach events for the whole family.
The way this event works is: Scuba divers are invited to participate in a treasure hunt whereby they look for golf balls on the ocean floor. Each golf ball has a number on it, and when it is found, it is entered into a random draw for a variety of prizes. There will be a BBQ, charity auction, contests for the kids and scavenger hunt for all participants and their families. At last years event we have had over 200 divers -- that means more than $5,000 can be raised for charity. Last year the Treasure Hunt was the largest Scuba diving event in Canada!
Come join us and make this year's hunt even larger!
We offer referral courses during the winter months to expedite dive training for people headed to warm beaches with lots of sun. Just do your diving done down south!
The PADI Open Water Diver course is typically comprised of three components. With a Torpedo Rays Referral Course you'll do the first 2 components with us, and the ocean dives down south. Here's how it breaks down:
Mares latest dive computer. Magnificently clear, super user-friendly and with a wealth of great features! Clear display with jumbo size information, two customizable fields for ancillary information and four buttons for intuitive user interface. The Quad Computer has mirrored button function during dive, option to view dive time including seconds and a runaway decompression alarm. This multi-gas capable computer has a decompression dive planner with user adjustable surface interval and a long battery life, with a user replaceable CR2450 battery.
This style of snorkeling mask has been sold in Europe for several years and now the new improved model has come to the Canada! Designed and manufactured in Italy by the Ocean Reef company, this updated, newly patented product is ready to take over industry. If you rent or borrow snorkeling equipment, this is one product you simply must get for yourself!
It's like riding a bike, except under water. Life in Canada tends to be cold in the winter, and many divers choose to save their diving for a trip to fun in the sun. The only problem is, you can't remember which end the air comes out of.
The PADI Scuba Tune Up is a one evening event consisting of a brief classroom session, and then some time in the pool. Designed to refresh your skills and dive knowledge, this fulfils the requirement for many resorts and dive venues down south.
This course is scheduled on demand and there are no course minimums. So, sign up any time!
