Having dealt with the crew at Diver's Wearhouse for years I can honestly say that it's the best shop around for any of your equipment or instructional needs. I spent a significant amount of time with these guys going through the first half of my Divemaster program (finished the rest abroad), assisting with classes both in Ottawa and Brockville and travelling to Curacao. The owners Rob and Laurie are as passionate as they come about the sport and getting new people involved. Dan is one of the best intructors I've met anywhere and works seriously hard to ensure PADI standards are met while maintaining an enjoyable learning experience. Attention to detail is what it's all about at Divers and I often refer prospective divers to them.

The staff and Dive Masters at Divers Wearhouse are amazing. They pay close attention to their students and really make you feel comfortable...even 30 feet under water. I am not an adventurous person, nor am I athletic. Nonetheless...the Dive Masters helped me achieve my goal of becoming a Certified Open Water Diver by instilling confidence and knowledge.
Next...I hope to get my advanced cert with DW!

My wife and I started diving 3 years ago with Diver's Wearhouse (DW). Since then, we have bought our dive equipment from DW and taken over 10 certification courses. We found the instructors to be knowledgeable, organized and safety conscious. In addition, we have done over 60 dives in the St. Lawrence with DW. We found that there was always a more experienced staff diver available to guide us around sites unfamiliar to us. They have always provided extra assistance to my wife who has bad knees. When diving in the Thousand Island area of the St. Lawrence River, not only do they provide a boat charter service but DW provides a bread and breakfast option at their Resort in Brockville. In addition, we have taken many trips organized by Diver's Wearhouse (6 trips including the Red Sea and Micronesia). We have enjoyed ourselves tremendously on these trips! DW looks after the participants not only in organizing the trip but in troubleshooting during the trip.

Full Service Dive Shop
Visit Date: January 2005
I have been a dive master for DW for quite a few years now and the first thing that struck me about them is their full service approach to diving. Besides the obvious dive shop with training, rentals and servicing they also have a resort and dive boats to provide clients with a single source for all their dive needs. As a DM I am very impressed by their approach to safety which comes above all else.

I have purchased from and am affiliated to Divers Warehouse. I am in the process of attaining my Dive Master certification and have taken all the required coursed as prerequisites with them and have been very satisfied.
The training staff are involved, very knowledgeable and focus on the students needs while ensuring the course requirements are fulfilled.
It is a complete Dive center that you can center your dive interests, academic and practical skills around with regular, club activity dives, charters, social events as well as supplying a complete line of dive equipment and accessories.
Currently in the midst of some serious expansion that will further improve the complete package.
Just walk in or give'm a call. Anyone you get will be happy to help you out no matter what your needs are.
