I have done all my training through SOS, they are very professional and their main focus is getting people back into the water. SOS is more then just a dive shop they become your dive family

Shelagh and Ray help make Vancouver Island's waters accessible for local and visiting divers. Air, EAN, equipment and sundries all available. The shop supports the local dive community heavily. Shelagh and Ray can hook you up for shore dives or charters. Great service.

Stopped with two teenagers to do some shore dives in Naniamo. Rental gear was fairly new and wetsuits fit well. Instructor and Divemaster were good and professional.

Thanks DW. I know Blake and Bianca enjoyed diving with you and the kids. Happy to show you all the underwater critters we have here. Hope you enjoyed your visit with one of our local wolf eels!

We look forward to diving with you again the next time you come out this way. Maybe a winter visit, you could get your Drysuit certification for a warmer dive and we can show you even better visibility. :)

Enjoy the rest of your summer and thanks again!

I rented gear at Sink or Swim for a sunday morning drop in dive and in 100 dives with rental equipment i can say that it is the best gear i've ever got. Everything was top quality and looked brand new. Also everyone from the staff is really nice and friendly. Highly recommended shop.
