Sudbury (but willing to travel) - Best, closest dive instruction

    Hi.

    I live in Sudbury, but I did all my dive training in southern Ontario. I am looking into dive training for two teenaged children and am quite ignorant about the local dive scene. I am willing to travel out of town for good instruction.

    I have previously taken recreational and technical diving courses with PADI, IANTD and GUE. I go something out of all of these courses and am not a snob about what organization provides the certification. Again, good instruction is the key element I'm looking for.

    I would appreciate recommendations.

    Thanks.

    You might want to get in contact with RE Scuba out of Sturgeon Falls.

    There used to be a pretty good dive shop on Barrydowne Road IIRC tucked into a little strip mall on a corner about 1/2 way between the Kingsway & the Mall.

    Have you been to The Scuba Shop on Notre Dame Ave across from Staples?

    I think the first shop you mentioned must be gone. I have been to the other shop. Owner seems like a nice guy. No idea what the quality of instruction is like.
