The Ocean Pro Difference 

100% AWARE

We are partnered with Project AWARE, a global non-profit organization that is Protecting Our Ocean Planet - One Dive at a Time. They are focused on the critical issues of Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, and we're supporting

them by donating $10 for every student we certify. 

Done with a Trip

At Ocean Pro Divers, we're all about adventure. This is why we try to do so many trips throughout the year! Since altitude diving generally takes place a fair distance away from us, we usually run this course in conjuction with a trip! Our most popular dive/altitude course combo is at Pavillion Lake!

Low Ratios

We keep our student to instructional staff ratios low to ensure you can progress a pace that is comfortable for you. We keep our numbers to a max of four students to one instructor or less.


You need to have completed your Open Water Diver certification to enroll in this program.

PADI courses are progressive and build on your previous dive experience. For all of our PADI courses, we require that you have recent experience to enroll.

Many of our favourite Ice Diving locations are high up in the mountains! Once you're altitude certified, try out Ice Diving!
