Hard to believe a new year is upon us! We held our Christmas Social at Sticky Fingers on Dunlop St. in barrie this year! In addition to the normally great time had by all our members, this year we had an extra surprise. Ryan slipped in a video from his appearance on The Price Is Right which aired on the morning before. Apparently he was on the show in August during his trip there and had to keep it hush-hushed until it aired! Whats new in 2016?! AIR SYSTEM UPGRADE! Thats right! During the later part of December we started our upgrade to our new compressor system. During January we will be setting it up and then switching over in February from our previous system. The new system will give us many benefits and will give us the best scuba diving system in the area (Barrie, Orillia, Simcoe & Surrounding townships!). We are also switching our BCD training / rental line to another model thus keeping us ahead of the curve on quality training. In addition there will be some real deals on used BCD's if you are looking for one. For a tour of our new air system or check...

Fall Scuba Diving and Night Diving

Posted by on in Adventures
Fall scuba diving is our favourite time for local dives. This is when the crowds are less and the fish encounters are better. Cooler evenings and mornings, cooler water temperatures, fading sunlight and shorter daylight hours. This means when diving, wear full cold water suits, bring warm cloths to put on after the dive and a blanket or warm up jacket. So when are our sunset dives? WEDNESDAYS!Start times will be at 6pm for briefings starting September 11th. As we will now find ourselves diving through dusk and even into the dark Non night certified divers will need to be out of the water 30 minutes prior to sunset. Divers that are advanced or night certified can dive past sunset. In addition, all divers and floats will need to be marked with a light.  Ever wanted to expand your diving into the night? Become a Night Scuba Diver. Night diving introduces us to a whole new underwater world. Even a local dive site which you have been on several times takes on a new perspective at night. The change of day brings out different fish, life forms, creatures and plant life as the nocturnal become active at night. They...
