Dive Alberta Event & Lake Cleanups 2023 Grand Prize Draw to come soon!
Wow, it's been a strange couple of years - thanks to SARS COVID-19 Pandemic. If you're like most divers, we're all "itching to get wet", our gills and gear are drying out & we're feeling socially scuba deprived.
Good news! AUC with host scuba clubs, LDS (local dive shop) have several Dive Events and Lake Cleanups almost back to normal in 2023.
Why dive in? Come out & meet many divers at the AUC Dive Alberta Events & Lake Cleanups around the province. Each year most events include fun dives, nav. dives, lake cleanups, even carve a pumpkin underwater, add social opportunities, meet new dive buddies, possibly win prizes, PLUS qualify for year end GRAND PRIZES. (Note: BBQ lunches have been dropped from most events due to COVID - so remember to pack your own lunch, snacks, water, drinks, special dietary needs, etc.)
Need a Refresher? Certified Tropically only? Be sure to contact your favourite local Dive Shop (LDS) in Alberta for their upcoming Refreshers, Advanced Courses, Dry-suit, Rescue, etc. dates, times, costs, etc. If certified in tropics only - that is where your certification is valid - not here at home. Why? Conditions here at home in Alberta are very different - not difficult - but consider comparing warm, clear, tropical warmth to wearing heavy 7mm wetsuits or dry-suits, more weight needed, reduced visibility, cold temperatures, shore entries, all which adds to task-loading on a diver. So contact an AB LDS near you for their recommendations & availability for a Cold Water Diving Course/Orientation or similar or Advanced course, etc. Be a SAFE DIVER! Dive within your limitations.

The AUC welcomes you to the company of underwater enthusiasts from all across the province. Join a dive event, scuba club or uw sports club which offers you a great opportunity to have fun underwater and above water with a group of similar minded individuals. Many AB Scuba Clubs offer opportunities to continually improve your scuba skills through on-going training or travel.
