Tri-City Scuba Red Zone

Welcome back to the Red Zone! COVID-19 has changed so much about our lives, and how we interact. SCUBA divers know that there is no better place to avoid all of those nasty airborne bugs than under water. We have a full calendar for diving and we are super happy to announce our 2021 pool schedule. Courses are back, so tell all your friends, neighbors, family members and shout from the rooftops.

The store has been receiving a face lift as well – the renovations are ongoing, but the changes are great so far. Wait until we are finished! There will be some celebrations this spring, and you are invited. Stay tuned.

New Division of Tri-City Scuba

Play Outside Store Logo

You have already seen hints and posts in social media, now you are getting the official announcement about the Play Outside Store. We are K-Ws latest, most comprehensive retailer of Stand Up Paddleboards, Kayaks, Inflatable Rafts, towables, storage and transportation accessories and more.

We stock life jackets for infants and dogs to adults, tow ropes, repair materials, pumps and more. Pass it on to your friends who like to play in, on, near and under the water. Our showroom is almost finished, so watch for announcements and our Grand Opening. In the meantime, you can see our online store at play-outside-now.com.

2021 Travel

We have a full season of local travel scheduled for you. Getting out and diving will not be and issue this season! Check out our online calendar, it is being updated as you read this. Book your trips now so you don’t miss out on your spot!
Where are we going?

  • Tobermory Weekends (2 for Advanced certified divers and above, 1 shore diving for everyone)

We are constantly asked about COVID-19, how it will impact our course and dive activities. We pay close attention to the Waterloo Regional Health Unit's recommendations, and the directives from Provincial and Federal governments. Our courses and programs have been moved, postponed and jiggled around in order to ensure everyone's health and safety. They will continue to be - and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

This will continue until the pandemic becomes just another disease like influenza and the cold. Until this time, we will have to be flexible, patient and understanding about the situation(s) and thank YOU for being such great people and YOUR understanding. Tri-City Scuba is here for you and because of you, so

Thank You Very Much.

Stay safe, take care of yourself and each other.
