Who We Are

Flamingo Divers is dedicated to teaching students how to use scuba gear properly and experience the exhilaration of SCUBA diving. We are SCUBA diving instructors, and not in the business of selling masks, fins and snorkels. (we can, however, help you select these items, but teaching you how to use them properly and
safely is our business). 

After years of diving ourselves, we have experienced numerous environments and situations that the average diver may not have. As a result, all of our teaching methods are based on “worst case” scenarios…..We will teach

you all of the “little tricks” that we have found to make your diving more enjoying and trouble free (Why not learn how to deal with novel situations when first learning rather than altering your techniques later!!) All of our rental gear has been purchased with the local diving environment in mind. Our regulators are environmentally sealed for the cooler Alberta waters, and any gear that we may help you purchase, will be with the local diving conditions in mind. Now you can start out with the “proper” gear first, rather than having to replace gear later!
