Scuba Dive in
Nova Scotia

Who should take this program?

You may remember your PADI Instructor saying, “If you travel to a new location or visit an unfamiliar dive environment, get a local orientation.” Its good advice and easy to do. Just ask the local PADI dive shop for a Discover Local Diving experience. Scuba diving with an experienced local dive professional lets you relax and better enjoy the adventure.

Any certified diver who wants to dive in a new area or environment.

For example, if all your diving has been in warm water on coral reefs and you travel to an area with cooler water and kelp forests, Discover Local Diving is for you.

Or, if the majority of your experience is from dive boats, and you have the chance to do a shore dive with an entry through mild surf, sign up for a Discover Local Diving experience.

What will you learn?

Your experienced PADI Pro will brief you on the dive site conditions, hazards and points of interest, plus describe the aquatic life you’ll see and how to interact responsibly with local creatures. If there are special procedures or techniques used locally, your dive professional will show you what to do to make your scuba dive fun and hassle free.


What will I do?

Your dive leader will pick you up promptly from the cruise ship terminal in beautiful downtown Halifax. They'll bring you to one of our two dive shops to get you geared up. It's a 45 minute drive to most dive sites, along the way you'll get to see the beauty of Nova Scotia. Once at the site we'll do up to two shore dives.

We'll tailor the dive site to your level of experience and desired goals for the dive. Whether you want to dive deep, take photos, or dig for treasure (pipes and bottles) we can accommodate you.

After your dives we'll bring you back to the cruise ship with time to do a little exploring, or we can stop at one of our favourite restaurants on the way back to town for a great meal. It's up to you.
