Arranged a dry suit course and 5 days of diving through Shirley. Everything went off without a hitch. Dove with with Shirley, Steve, Dirk, Sean and Matt all were great to dive with.

Shirley was knowledgeable and attentive. I hadn't been diving in a while and Shirley was very understanding and helped me get back in the swing of things quickly. I recommend them highly.

Dived with Dive Outfitters over three days in August 2013 and had a great dive experience,real professional guide and friendship with Shirley and her friends. Great shop and top quality gear to use as I was on holiday from UK. Recommend without hesitation and would go back if I was in the area again. Alf Yates

After 5 years of not diving due to the arrival of some small kids (to go along with 3 older kids/teens)--we decided to give it a go again during a vacation to Vancouver Island. The summer before last (2012), we rented a house... More
