Dive Source Scuba is now located at 1910 Dundas St E #116, Whitby, ON L1N 2L6 at the corner of Garrard and Dundas (905-438-8566 - firstname.lastname@example.org).
Dive Source started over 25 years ago in Whitby in 1996 and then spent 17 years in Oshawa, before moving back to Whitby late in 2021. From humble beginnings, Dive Source has become the number one shop in the area largely because of the team of Dive Professionals as well as certain fundamental goals that they continue to value today.
Equipment Sales: Dive gear is a personal choice with many variables, so we provide a large selection of high-quality scuba gear at prices that are reasonable - What good is getting certified if you can't afford the gear? Our philosophy has been to understand our customer and to fit each person individually, as every person has different needs and our job is to assist you with finding the gear that works for you and also is in your budget.
Furthermore, we demand quality gear and great support from our suppliers/manufacturers. Our goal is to sell the best items each of our suppliers has to offer and to ensure there is nothing in our store that we would not be comfortable using ourselves. With that in mind, we use our knowledge and experience to make sure you get the very best that is available and frankly...we don't carry it unless it meets our standards.
Equipment Service: Both equipment service and customer service must be excellent and done in a timely manner. Professional service is the key to a good dive shop. Our staff is constantly upgrading their skills to serve you better and looking for ways to make you a better diver and a happy customer. As well, we will ensure you are well educated on how to care for your gear and understand your gear intimately.
Scuba Training: Dive Source is a PADI 5 Star training facility and our PADI Open water diver course is one of the best around. We also offer many PADI specialty classes and also tech diving courses such as Advanced Nitrox, Deco procedures, intro to trimix and PADI Tec Rec.
Our Scuba instructors are highly respected, professional, and have an active role in how we run our courses. Its always been our view that there are always ways to improve and become better at what you do.
We hire people to teach our courses based on their qualifications and not just the agency for which they teach. That means we have instructors available from PADI, NAUI, TDI, SDI, etc... and are always looking for others who share our view that they must be dedicated to training quality first.
Knowledge: We love our reputation as the shop with answers. (And if we don't know - we will do our best to find out!)
Our staff is very knowledgeable and are avid scuba divers. They will offer straight forward answers to your questions and if they do not know the answer they will tell you so and then take steps to quickly find out (No BS).
A dive shop is more than just a place to buy gadgets or take a class. It is an anchor for the dive community and we are proud to be a place for divers to come and be taken care of, meet other divers and plan their adventures under the water. In keeping with that, we couldn't do it without our customers, the characters and friends who make it all worthwhile.
We hope that this tells you a little more about who we are and if you have the chance please take the time to drop by and see us some time and say hello!
