Diving in Canada

Explore diving in Canada

From a diver’s point of view, Canada really has a lot going for it. It has extensive borders with the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic Oceans. It has more lakes than the rest of the world combined and 20 percent of the world’s freshwater. And it’s widely considered to be one of the most peaceful and friendly nations on earth.

On the West Coast, the Pacific beckons. The dive sites here are characterized by walls, pinnacles, and reefs both natural and man-made. The Prairie Provinces have more great dive sites than the name might imply.

Central Canada has wreck diving to rival the best in the world. Atlantic Canada offers up another entire ocean complete with some of the biggest tides going and some of the world’s strangest marine creatures.
