Located in the center of the University of British Columbia, the UBC Aqua Society is a dive club proudly run by students since 1957! Our purpose is to build a community among local divers and channel people’s adventure spirits towards the ocean. We are open to everybody, students and non-students.

We are a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre and offer dive courses, club events and rental packages to inspire diving in the Pacific Northwest. We offer low student to instructor ratios, a fun atmosphere, quality training, and opportunities to meet other divers. Check out our dive courses here.

Whether you are looking to start your diving career, only have only gone diving in the tropics or are an experienced diver, you are more than welcome to visit our shop and have a chat!

As BC is one of the most well known locations for cold water diving, we are especially proud of educating safe diving habits in these unique conditions, while appreciating the local wildlife and nature.
