The Diving Locker was started in 1969 by Greg Kocher. As a young 18 year old, Greg’s passion for diving and teaching others how to dive was contagious. Since starting the Diving Locker, he has taken it through many changes and transformations over the years. From suit manufacturing, to expanding into multiple stores across the lower mainland and Sunshine Coast. Greg and the Diving Locker is very well known in the industry, in fact many other dive shop owners first got their start right here at The Diving Locker!
Today the Kitsilano location is the only remaining store, and one of the busiest and largest dive centers in Canada. It’s focus is on training divers, organizing local and tropical dive trips, and of course keeping a well stocked retail store. The Diving Locker carries a wide selection of Dive Gear, Snorkeling Gear, Wetsuits and Accessories for Swimming, Paddling, Kayaking, and general watersports.
