Shipwreck Diving

The waters of Nova Scotia are full of wrecks waiting to be explored by all certification levels.  We can supply you with dive brief and a history of the ship; we're very luck to say our staff have well over 15 years of experience with diving these wrecks. You'll find artificial reefs (sunk for diver), world war wrecks, ships that misjudged Nova Scotia's jagged rocky shoreline and ships that met misfortune due to scavenging and much more.  Visit our Wrecks of Nova Scotia page where you'll find pictures, videos and date wreck sank as well as certification level. Call the shop or check out our Facebook page for the most up to date charter schedule.

Charters will continue till November 29th (more updates coming soon)

ECSW Club Dives

Join us weekly on Thursday evenings for a group dive. All club dives are shore entry and are inclusive of all skill and ability levels. We keep our group size small and buddy up based on experience and individual dive plans. To our newly certified divers: Everyone is always learning, and everyone starts somewhere. The only way to get more comfortable and gain experience is by getting out and going scuba diving!

The local dive community is fabulous! There are many PADI professionals and skilled divers that are more than willing to help, share knowledge and ensure everyone is having fun!
