TSC is now offering pool training for the PADI Open Water course in Caledon at the Southfields Recreation Centre. Students training here complete the academic portion of the course through eLearning and join us at the pool for the in-water training.
Gulliver’s Lake (Sun Retreats RV Park)
We do our open water certification dives in Gulliver’s Lake, a 14-acre lake fed by artesian wells nestled inside an RV resort. Gulliver’s Lake provides the best diving conditions in the GTA for open water training: the water is always calm, offering good visibility and water temperature.
Humber Bay Park West
Humber Bay Park West is a beautiful park in Toronto’s west end, on a spit of land in Lake Ontario. It offers impressive views of the downtown Toronto skyline. Non-divers enjoy the park for birdwatching. For scuba divers, it’s a popular training location, with a few underwater platforms and other sunken treasures. TSC uses Humber Bay Park West for Advanced Open Water training, and the Dry Suit specialty course in the shoulder season. There are several parking lots in the park; we usually dive from Green P Parking Lot 526.
Shanty Bay Wharf
Located near Barrie on Lake Simcoe, Shanty Bay offers easy water access and good diving conditions. TSC uses this location for the deep dive of the Advanced Open Water course, and other courses requiring greater depths.
Etobicoke Olympium Pool
The wonderful Etobicoke Olympium pool is a 17ft deep Olympic size pool located in Etobicoke. We rent this pool occasionally for courses that benefit from the deeper water.
