Why Learn on a Boat?
When first learning to scuba dive, many students experience a steep learning curve with the excess gear - a 35 lb scuba tank, 35-40lbs of lead weight, a hood, gloves etc. is a lot of equipment when you are trying to learn in a unique new environment. When we teach shore dives, many students find it difficult to navigate the shores of BC with an extra 75+ lbs of weight on their back. Diving in cold water can be more challenging than diving in the tropics; as such, we do our best to eliminate unnecessary challenges for our students.
