About TDA


One of the most unique, exciting influences to touch the Canadian Dive Industry in years!

The Dive Academy is first and foremost a resource for divers, both new and experienced. Located in Oakville, Ontario just off the QEW Highway, the Academy is a full-service Snorkeling and Scuba Diving Centre with a focus on offering our customers exceptional service, quality & value.

  • Training

The Dive Academy is committed to providing Comprehensive training programs in a safe, friendly environment. Scuba is fun, no question, but it also requires knowledge & a skill set that should not be rushed. We take our time at The Dive Academy, because we want our customers to have the best experience possible. Supported by both Scuba Schools International (SSI) and Technical Diving International (TDI) certifying agencies, The Dive Academy can meet the needs of the absolute beginner, all the way to the Technical Rebreather Divers.

  • Retail Sales & Service

We have partnered with some of the top brands in the Scuba Industry to provide our customers with both the best quality and value. You will hear us say “It’s all about fit!”, and this is true. It is very difficult to have an enjoyable, safe experience on or in the water with ill fitting gear. We will help you find the best fit for “you”.

The Dive Academy is a Fully Certified Nitrox/TriMix Blending Facility. Whether you are in need of “air” or require a Nitrox or Trimix blend for your next dive, we can help. Our Bauer K14 Compressors, large tank farm and Haskel pump will help get the perfect mix! Need a 3000 psi fill of 100% Oxygen for your rebreather? No Problem!

Our Service Lab is fully equipped to repair and maintain your gear, and our Professional Service Technicians will help keep all of your gear in optimal condition!

A specialty at the Academy is Underwater Imaging. The staff are all accomplished photographers and are available to assist you with camera selection, tips on shooting to “get the shot”. There is also a full Photo and Video suite available for customers to edit photos, print large format colour images or create complete videos, ready to view on your screen at home with family and friends. Let us help you remember and enjoy your latest dive trip, long after you’re home.
