The Tankers SCUBA Club meets every Tuesday and Thursday 1900 hrs – 2100 hrs in Building M6 located behind the base gym. The membership also enjoys pool time from 2000 hrs – 2300 hrs on the same nights and 0800 hrs – 1000 hrs on Sundays.
We typically teach Discover SCUBA to children or groups on the Sunday mornings; however, we always have room for members to practice their skills!
We certify primarily through ACUC and teach all courses from Open Water to Instructor.
The Open Water Course is the first step in becoming a certified SCUBA Diver. Upon completion of this course, you are able to dive up to a recommended depth of 60 feet with a dive buddy of a minimum of the equivalent certification. It takes approximately four weeks to complete this course.
Club membership is $40.00 per year
We provide gear rentals, tank inspections, air fills and much, much more.
We dive ALL YEAR ROUND, come in and join us!!
We host many activities throughout the year such as Underwater Pumpkin Carving, Christmas Tree Decorating, BBQs, and Wreck Diving and so on. We organize trips that go anywhere from Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario all the way to Newfoundland.
For more information please drop by the club (located behind the Base Gym) during our regular hours. You can also visit the recreation office or base gym front desk for one of our pamphlets.
