Explore the unique aquascape found only under ice. You can be one of the few that have ever dived under a solid ceiling of ice. Plus, imagine the look on your Divemaster’s face on your next Caribbean trip when you flash your PADI Ice Diver certification.
You might get a chance to play with your exhaled air bubbles on the bottom of the ice or an opportunity to try the unique sport of upside down, bottom of the ice, skiing.
You will complete a minimum of three ice dives for your certification. Dives are typically done as a group working with support personnel, divers, tenders, and safety divers. You are under the ice to learn to control buoyancy, navigate under the ice, and keep in contact with the lead diver and tenders via line pulls.

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!
