Level 1 diving course – Open Water

This certification allows you to dive whenever and wherever you want (up to 18 metres deep).

During this course, you will learn the basics of scuba diving and the different techniques involved, as well as how to use the equipment safely. Your Open Water certification is recognized worldwide.

Level 2 diving course – Advanced Open Water

Do you have at least the Open Water level or equivalent? Then sign up for the Advanced Open Water course.

During this course, you will discover the pleasures of deep diving (30 metres for those over 12 years old and a maximum of 12 metres for those under 12 years old).

You will also develop your knowledge of navigation and buoyancy control. You will be able to use a dive computer, start to recognize and identify different species of fish, corals, and underwater plants, do drift dives and learn to dive at night.

You’ll get a new perspective on diving and even more fun and excitement awaits you. Each validated dive can be credited toward the corresponding specialty training.

Level 3 diving course – Rescue Diver PADI

During the Rescue course, you will learn all the techniques to react and help a person in case of an accident. You will also learn the basics of how to diagnose sick or injured divers and how to help them before the emergency services arrive.

Divemaster Level Course

Divemaster is the first professional certification that allows you to make diving your profession. It will allow you to serve as a guide, mentor, and leader to other certified divers. Come and live a unique experience and be part of the team.

With our Divemaster Internship and Course, you will participate for two months as an intern and take part in dive centre tasks assigned by the director, in exchange for all training and dives leading up to the PADI Divemaster course (free of charge), excluding study material. All courses are integrated into the Divemaster Internship and your participation counts as part of the internship period. On average, candidates make a minimum of 60 dives.

FQAS certification

FAQS stands for Fédération québécoise des activités subaquatiques (Quebec Federation of Underwater Activities). We’re offering a diving course that will give you the certification you need to explore Quebec’s underwater wonders. The course includes a number of practical exercises, such as buoyancy control, mask clearing, and many other essential cold-water diving skills.


We offer specialty courses to help you improve your diving skills and explore new underwater experiences. Each course offers specific training in a particular area of diving, to develop your skills and confidence as a diver, whether you are a beginner or an experienced diver.
