Courtenay Comox Dive Lessons on Vancouver Island
For Courtenay Comox dive lessons, Nanaimo to Campbell River, or anywhere around Vancouver Island, British Columbia, there are a number of options to learn how to scuba dive or to improve your scuba diving skills.
The most economical way to get your scuba diving license is through your local dive shop.
This page has a list of local BC dive shops.
Courses generally go over a number of weeks according to a set schedule and include between 6-10 students.
For a few dollars more, many people arrange private or semi-private dive lessons, which allow for focused one-on-one or very small group training.
In addition to the customized training which ensures the speed of the course can be adjusted based on your understanding and ability to carry out the required tasks, private or semi-private dive lessons can also allow you to complete the course on your schedule and timeframe.
You can obtain your Open Water and other scuba certifications in 3 days or less, depending on the course.
