November News

Winter Pool Sessions:

We are trying something new year; pool time subscriptions!

We book our pool time well in advance, but the unpredictability of classes due to the COVID-19 climate is a challenge. As partners with the City of Kitchener, we have gone above and beyond with our disinfection and protection protocols to keep divers safe.

People new to diving are more apprehensive because they are dealing with COVID-19 the same as everyone else, but have their own apprehensions about taking a course now. This is leading to less predictable enrollments in our Open Water Diver courses.
To remedy this, we are introducing a new Winter Pool Subscription – giving you guaranteed access to pool times. This also will help us offset the high costs of pool time so we can run more programs this winter.

Cost is $120+hst and will give you Saturday evening pool sessions (pool access only – rentals are extra) in January, February, March , April and May. We need a minimum of 15 subscriptions in order to make this program work.

Your questions answered...

Q: I just got my new Dry Suit and completed my Dry Suit Diver course with you, but I forget how to pack my suit and store it for the winter (when I am done diving!). I love the suit and the fact that I have been diving in NOVEMBER!

A: You picked some great colours for your overlay - that FLX Extreme is pretty snazzy!
  1. Dry the inside of your suit out very thoroughly first - then the outside to make sure it is clean and ready to pack up
  2. Turn it right-side-out
  3. Use a VERY SPARING amount of talc or Gear Aid UV Tech on the neck and wrist seals to keep them from sticking together
  4. Place the suit on a flat surface, zipper down and fold or roll the suit from the feet to the neck - this protects the curve of the zipper
  5. Push the wrist seals into the sleeve of the dry suit as well as the neck to protect them from abrasion or cuts
  6. Put the suit in it's bag or a clean, dry bin for winter storage
