You have a great program, and also a great staff, it was a pleasure being able to come out and take your course.

They have told me that I am way more prepared than any other starting employee they have ever had. That's where I owe everyone there thanks. I feel confident in what I am doing, and it has shown. I want to thank everyone there for teaching me what it takes to be a diver, and giving me the knowledge and confidence I need.
- T. Carnahan
Excellent school, awesome instructors. I am so glad I went to DiveSafe, they have helped me to get lots of work after graduation!
- James
I did not really know what to expect from a commercial dive course, but Divesafe provided a great experience and a course that more than prepares you for the diving industry. Also incredibly helpful getting work for recent graduates. I had three or four opportunities right out of school thanks to the Divesafe staff. All in all I learned a lot and had a great time doing it. Still have nightmares about that birdhouse though!
- Paul Hinton
Divesafe gave me the skills needed to be a commercial diver. All of the instructors are top notch and have a ton of knowledge to share. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. DiveSafe grad 2016
- Kane Punnett
I finished the commercial scuba class and swim away impressed, educated, and supported. The training and equipment are top notch and the staff are friendly, reliable, and knowledgeable. I go out into the underwater world equipped with practical skills while knowing Divesafe is there for me, like a family, providing, support, encouragement, job postings, and advice. If I could give more stars in this review I would! DiveSafe Grad 2016
- Rob Field
Ongoing support and contact about future opportunities has lead to work immediately after the course. Biological surveys, boat work and now on a urchin harvester Kirby. Rock on Divesafe!! Couldn't be more prepared. DiveSafe International Education
- Matthew Kirby
Ahoy just completed my occupational unrestricted scuba with nitrox last week. What a jumpstart into the commercial diving world. Divesafe has an outstanding dive and ofifice staff helping you all the way though.
- Matthew Kirby
From the beginning they were extremely well organized and clear with a complete class and dive schedule. That definitely helped me complete the course by knowing which day what sections were being covered and allowed me proper preparation prior.

Northern Most Education - May 26th


Northern most Education We all know that recreational divers who get trained by BSAC, CMAS, or even PADI in cold water are all round better divers when they go south to warmer waters. In a recent addition of UnderWater magazine, the official ADCI publication, I read a piece written by Aaron Lay from Holland College about how diver’s who train in cold northern waters make better commercial divers...

Tools and underwater welding - May 23rd


Those of us in the UnRestricted Surface Supply course have had a very exciting past couple of weeks. Our instructors decided they trust us enough underwater to try hydraulic and pneumatic tools as well as Broco (an ultrathermic cutting rod) and welding. We started off with suction tools; the airlift and the venturi dredge, which we all agreed suck (not funny? haha). We finished the day off with a...

Birdhouses underwater? You bet.... - May 9th


Birdhouses and boxes underwater? You bet... it may seem crazy, but building a small item underwater with a saw, hammer and nails is a great skills development project. During week 3 of the Occupational SCUBA Diver course, students are required to take on the box building project. The purpose of this project is not to frustrate divers underwater…it is a skills building project which reinforces...

The Big Nasty - April 19th


The Big Nasty I’m sure some of you reading this know a thing or two about it, but its for those of you that don’t that I write this post. The Big Nasty is a log, ours having a roughly 1.5 foot diameter, with one end rigged to the seafloor so that it floats vertically in the water. The objective of the project is to first drill through the log using a brace (a type of hand-drill), and then saw...

This is a super location, just a short 15 min boat ride on Reefseeker across Discovery Channel to Quadra Island. The bay is nicely tucked in from the winds, beautiful green water, a sunken wreck and lots of sea life...

Mermaids, Rapture of the Deep...Giant Octopus... - April 13th


Mermaids, Rapture of the Deep, giant Octopus... Surface Supply Diving is full of mystic and tradition... And DiveSafe has added to this with their current class. During the Surface Supply training each class designs and creates (using their newly acquired welding training & experience) their own class emblem. This class totally rocked the topside welding training and to prove it...take a...
