Please join us as we clean up our local dive sites! 

At Diving Sports, we are passionate about protecting our local environment and always aim to leave the sites we dive cleaner than when we left. We host both underwater and shoreline clean-up events where participants collect trash above and below the surface. Come socialize with fellow divers and people passionate about the environment.

 Transportation :

Transport can be provided from our shop to the dive site. We have our shop van (limited to a 6 passenger maximum capacity). Available passenger places in the shop van will be provided on a first-come-first-serve basis. Meet times are 1 hour earlier for those needing transportation to ocean dives.

Equipment Rental :

Tanks and air fills are free! All other gear rentals are 25% off. Equipment (including tanks) are limited, and can be reserved on a first come first served basis. If you require tanks, please select "yes" to rentals in the drop-down box.

    Commitment to Safety and Enjoyment

    At Diving Sports we believe in making sure all our divers (Scuba and Freedivers) receive the best possible experience while maintaining a high standard for safety, both for the divers, the guide, and the environment we are visiting. Our dive guides have many years of experience diving locally in cold water. All Dive guides are trained in first aid and oxygen delivery. First Aid kits and DAN Oxygen Kits are present on all trips and courses. Dive sites or dive plans may be changed due to weather conditions or experience level of the group, as well as anyone not adhering to proper dive practices will politely be asked to adapt to better interact with the underwater environment.
