Recreational Gold Package

Proof Of Covid Vaccination Required

As per recent BC Health Orders, effective September 13th, all divers participating in classes or trips must be able to provide proof of at least a single Vaccination. By October 17th, divers will need to be fully vaccinated in order to participate in a dive course. This is a temporary measure, and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we work through this period.

Scuba Diving

Course Price $899.95 Includes:8

Students are required to provide their own personal gear (mask, snorkel, fins, boots, & gloves). Fins, boots and gloves are available for rental during each course.

The water here can get quite chilly, which is why most of us dive in a drysuit year round! It is possible to dive in a wetsuit from June – September, but a drysuit is still highly recommended.

If you haven’t dove in a drysuit before, you will need to complete the drysuit orientation. You will do some additional pool training which will teach you how to use a drysuit in a confined water setting, and how to handle the changes in buoyancy. You will then get to use the drysuit for your ocean dives.

Drysuit Rental – $75 (If you’ve already completed the pool orientation)

Drysuit Upgrade – $99.95 (Includes additional pool training, and drysuit rental for all 5 of your ocean dives)

Should you decide to upgrade to the full PADI Drysuit Specialty later on, you would just pay an additional $199.95, and come out for two more ocean dives.

Must be 15 years of age or older.

Must be at least PADI Open Water certified or equivalent.

Must be able to complete a medical questionnaire, and obtain medical clearance if necessary.

Covid Procedures: Please see notice at top of page in regards to Covid Vaccination requirements

We will be doing temperature checks for all students prior to each session.

Everyone is required to fill out a Declaration of Health form.

All divers will be required to have their own mask, snorkel and regulator mouthpiece.

Divers will be required to wear a mask or face covering while in the store/classroom/van

Something come up and need to postpone your course? No problem! We ask that you give us 1 week notice, as we do fill up quickly so we’d like to have time to fill your spot.

Unfortunately we do not offer refunds, but we would be happy to move you to a different date or offer you a credit towards a future trip or course.

Take Your Diving to The Next Level!

The Recreational Gold Course (RGC) is designed for Open Water students who wish to develop their diving skills without taking the professional route. This program includes:

Advanced @ Vancouver | British Columbia | Canada


Nov 6 – Nov 7 all-day
Advanced @ Vancouver | British Columbia | Canada

To be certified as a Rescue Diver, participants must have completed a sanctioned course in CPR within the past 2 years. Emergency First Response (EFR), includes both a primary care component (CPR) and secondary care (First Aid).

The EFR Course can be completed on it’s own or paired with the Rescue Diver Course

Nov 9 @ 5:00 pm
Rescue @ Vancouver Diving Locker | Vancouver | British Columbia | Canada

The next step for a PADI Advanced Diver is the Rescue Course. Here you’ll learn the skills that are needed to become more aware of yourself and your diving companions.

The Rescue Course will teach you to effectively prevent problem situations and to deal with diving emergencies. This is arguably one of PADI’s best courses for increasing a diver’s self confidence.

The course includes two evening class and pool sessions, and one day of ocean diving.

Nov 13 all-day
