Check out our trip to the Georgia Aquarium virtually!!The open water season is at last almost upon us! Spring Refreshers. Are they important? As with anything in life practice make perfect. For many of us the winter season means little if any diving. Perhaps a few dives south or a few pool sessions. While these are great fun and practice we need to ask if they are enough! How are your table skills, what about your dive planning skills, do you know you air consumption rate after the winter? After asking these questions to yourself then ask “when is the next refresher?” For us in Ontario we need to add in one more reason to be sharp at the beginning of the season THE WATER IS COLD at the beginning. Are you ready? Our 4D Skill builder refresher series starts in March and will continue until the diving in the lakes begins.

We are offering members an introduction to Sidemount Diving in the pool on Wednesday the 12th in both sessions. There is no additional fees to come try this, so come and try. This is an intro and not...
