Dive Courses

Believe this... Our Courses are not like the others!

Calgary Scuba is proud to exclusively offer Dive Certifications both through TDI and SDI right here in Calgary!

We are the ONLY Store in Alberta teaching scuba classes in a full five metre deep Olympic size pool! This means you can actually swim around as you realistically complete your training, unlike in the other local dive facilities' small in-store pools. Brookfield Residential YMCA is the largest YMCA in the World!

Planning a Vacation? Call or stop by to discuss your options. Whether you are interested in a Scuba Discovery Class, or getting your SDI Open Water Scuba Diver or TDI Advanced Trimix Diving Certification, we are where you want to be! Call to talk with one of our dually certified Instructors about your next dive course, you will be glad you did.

Why would you settle for just any scuba certification? Take your dive training with the Dive Training Innovators, TDI/SDI, and Calgary Scuba, the store that guarantees your success.

"Life just doesn't get any wetter than this!"

Course Director

John Harcus

John attributes his love for diving to a book received as a gift by his Father in the early 70's, The Silent World, by Jacques Cousteau. Since his first dive in 1980, the love affair has grown. John is our SDI Course Director, as well as a TDI and PADI Instructor. Call us for all your Scuba needs.



Our experienced Instructors safely train you in a full size pool to learn the basic skills, and upon successful completion of the confined water training, we go to one of the local lakes to complete your four open water training dives. The first step is to create a no obligation profile on the TDI/SDI website. Call to find out how!
