People living in Nanaimo are fortunate to have the ocean so close to them. Scuba diving in the area is considered to be some of the best cold water diving in the world. Scuba diving is a lot of fun and a great way to relax as well as a more personal appreciation of ocean creatures. Sink or Swim Scuba and Water Sports has a great series of classes for people who’d like to learn to scuba dive. Start with the PADI open water diving course. Start studying at home to get some of the basics down, then join the class and instructor in the classroom for three evening sessions of both classroom and pool instruction. Follow that up with a weekend of diving. Two ocean dives are held on Saturday, then another two on Sunday, so participants are secure in their diving skills. The class is open to anyone from Nanaimo who is at least 10 years old, in good physical shape, and strong swimming skills.
