  FREEDIVNG IN BC  

Jacque Cousteau famously said BC's coast has “the best temperate water diving in the world, and second only to the Red Sea.” The province is also home to many lakes and rivers offering freedivers a wide range of dive sites to choose from. 

There are currently no AIDA Canada affiliated clubs in BC.

 

Interested in starting one? Contact us below and we can provide you with the resources and guidance to do so.
