We have the most experienced and diverse team of PADI Instructors in Comox Valley. Private courses are available and surprisingly inexpensive. We have NITROX. Dive with sea lions, octopus, wolf eels and so much more.

Our rental department is the best around consisting of top of the line AQUALUNG regulators, APEKS weight integrated BCDs that hold enough lead that you won't need a belt and WHITES FUSION dry suits with replacable neck and wrist seals for a perfect fit every time. Don't use some rental wet suit (YUCK!) that other people have peed in!

We offer all PADI courses and we issue PADI CERTIFICATION CARD guaranteeing that your card will be recognized anywhere in the world.

If you are not certified yet or just need to do your ocean dives call us. Dive dry, warm & comfortable with experienced pros.

I went through UB for my Open Water and Advanced Open Water course. The diving Instructor teaches more then `Just the required` and ensures you are safe, comfortable, understand the course and having fun! Rentals we used are products they sell, not warn out, great equipment! Shellie and Sean are always taking care of their customers even when rushed to... More

I recently dove with these guys and my experience was fantastic. I bought a drysuit from here and got a great deal, the owner Sean did a great job putting the boots on and making sure the suit was tight. I did two boat dives of which both were great. The boat was in great shape, it was tidy and... More

I took the PADI Open Water Course with Sean on Canada day weekend. He did a phenominal job of catering to everyone's individual experience and comfort level. He has a wealth of experience and a great sense of humour that make the trip a pleasure. He was punctual every day and his rental equipment was great. He also had another... More
