The club certifies SCUBA divers under the internationally recognized PADI training programme. We stress safety, fitness, and dive experience. The club offers basic and advanced SCUBA diving courses involving classroom, pool, and open water instruction. For those divers already certified, the club offers specialty courses such as Medic First Aid / CPR, DAN O2 Provider, Rescue, and Divemaster. Our club instructors can provide you with training at your pace and schedule.
Diver safety is of utmost importance to the Turtles. The club has one
of the safest diving records in all of Ontario. This safe record can be
directly attributed to our members being prepared through effective training
and practiced water skills. Each dive event is supervised by one or more
certified Divemasters. The club also provides safety equipment for all
Come on out, have some fun, and make some history of your own.
We dive all year round, and if there isn't something scheduled, our members often set something up to fill the gap.
We engage in recreational diving. As such, we practice "no decompression" diving within the established sport diving limits. We do not practice technical or mixed gas diving, with the exception of Nitrox and only if proper training has been applied.
