Believe it or not, Alberta has a very large dive community. Head to one of the lakes in Jasper or Banff on a summer weekend and you will probably see dozens of divers gathering along the shore and in the water diving. What is there to see? Well that depends on who you ask and where you go. Obviously the marine life isn't quite the same as the tropics or even on the coast. However, Jasper is a great place to get scuba certified, practice your scuba diving skills, take an advanced or specialty scuba course, and get comfortable and confident with your dive skills. Then when you venture to the tropics or Vancouver Island, not only will you experience some awesome scuba diving, but you’ll be more comfortable and confident making for a very positive and memorable experience. As the saying goes, “if you can dive in Alberta, you can dive anywhere!”
