Operating within the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services, Aquarius Dive Club is a Personnel Support Program based in CFB Esquimalt, Victoria, BC and available to the Canadian Armed Forces community and associates.
After over 50 years, Aquarius has grown to become the largest active dive club in the Canadian Forces and one of the oldest dive club's in Canada. We offer boat dives, trips and our instructors offer a variety of courses.
Our instructors offer Entry level "Basic Open Water” courses as well as “Advanced Open Water” courses including: Dry Suit, Deep, Night, Wreck, Enriched Air / Nitrox, Photography, Rescue and Dive Master. All courses are affordably priced and include classroom time, equipment, pool time at Naden, Open Ocean Shore Dives and Boat Dives as required for the individual course.
Unrestricted by Geography, you can regularly find Aquarius Dive Club diving on the 737 Wreck in Chemainus, HMCS Cape Breton and HMCS Saskatchewan in Nanaimo, HMCS Columbia in Campbell River and the abundance of sea life in Telegraph Cove, just south of Port Hardy or in one of our favourite tropical dive destinations.
With assets such as our own boat, compressor and compressor trailer as well as a great group of divers always on the lookout of the next adventure, we make diving affordable and fun no matter what your skill levels are.
