Scuba Diving Stores In British Columbia

Our local scuba diving stores are great sources of information, scuba dive equipment, scuba dive lessons, and scuba diving trips.

With some of the world’s best scuba diving right at our doorstep, British Columbia has attracted many top quality, professional scuba diving stores, equipment retailers and charter operators. When I won a trip to Waikiki a few years ago, I knew this would probably be my one and only chance to scuba dive in Hawaii.

I spent hours on the internet trying to find the best scuba dive outfit – with great scuba equipment, dive boat, experienced dive master, best locations to dive, etc.

After hours of looking for reviews and comments from other divers, I made my choice and booked my dives.

Well, the dives were great and we even spotted humpback whales along the way, but many things weren’t as described on their website.

When I saw the facilities of the company that was my second choice, I wish I chose them instead.

Oh well – lesson learned. There is nothing better than seeing what you are getting first hand. Or at least, second hand.

To make it easier to plan your scuba vacation travel and your dives, I will split the premiere dive shops and operators of British Columbia into these main regions:

1. Vancouver and the Lower Mainland

2. Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands

3. The Sunshine Coast

4. The Okanagan



A good Vancouver adventure travel agent, can put a great scuba diving package together for you using the best scuba diving stores and charter operators in the area.

Or, if you book your own trip, you might want to consider using an experienced, PADI certified, local Vancouver divemaster/dive buddy/dive instructor.

Please remember to return here and give us your opinion so others can benefit from your experiences.
