Neck Point Rescue Diver

Rescue Diver CourseA group from Sink or Swim Scuba was at Neck Point Park today taking advantage of the excellent weather to plunge into the practical side of their Rescue Diver Course. The full course involves two evening classes at Sink or Swim's Mostar Road dive shop, then two sessions in the ocean to apply the lessons learned. Rescue Diver is an advanced scuba diving course and all participants must be certified divers.

For beginners, Sink or Swim Scuba offers a two-week Open Water Course leading to scuba certification at $300 plus tax including the manuals. Frankly, that price is excellent and far less than you'd pay for the same at a Caribbean resort. If you only want a taste of scuba diving, ask about their Discover Scuba experience in a swimming pool which costs $25 per person. Both courses have a four-person minimum, so call (250) 758-7946 to find out when one is scheduled.

One of the great things about Nanaimo is the dozens of world-class dive sites we have in our backyard. If you're already a certified scuba diver, Sink or Swim Scuba organizes excursions to places like Xihwu Reef (the world's only Boeing 737 dive site), the HMCS Cape Breton (one of the largest artificial reefs in the world), Clarke Rock (the lair of octopus and eels), Jessie Island (caves, walls, and marinelife), Dodds Narrows (a fabulous drift dive), Gabriola Pass (rocky ledges teaming with life), and many more. The Thursday night ocean dive is different every week and extremely popular.
