Dive Shops/Instructors* in Alberta

Need scuba training, courses, refreshers, air fills, scuba or snorkeling equipment near you? See these links below!

The Dive Shops operating in Alberta offer a wide variety of services - from initial snorkel or scuba training, with offerings of all scuba equipment needed - all the way up to exotic dive travel opportunities or escorted dive travel.  Please support them & visit your local favourite dive shop for gear sales and rentals, scuba courses and training, local diving opportunities, lake cleanups, dive trips and escorted group travel.

Please support them by shopping in Alberta.  Please note that the AUC doesn't not provide scuba courses other than our school/youth outreach programs.  The AUC is independent and neutral when it comes to all Alberta Dive Centres and their scuba certification agencies. We welcome participation from any of Alberta's dive stores and their associated training agencies or suppliers.  We always endeavor to operate fairly, cooperatively & reciprocally with all organizations & individuals that wish to engage with the Council.
