Gift Ideas for Scuba Diving Dad

Keep him on track in his diving journey!
By Therese Castillo


Father’s Day is right around the corner. If you are one of the few (or many – who knows!) who is still scouring to think of ideas of what to get dad on his special day, then good news: we’ve got a little cheat sheet coming up for you!


Is dad a new diver or already a pro? How often does he go diving – not much? Or do you find him seeking for a new adventure? Well, regardless of where he’s at in his diving journey, there is always a program and a bunch of gears suited to keep him on track. Here, we’ve listed a few options:


  1. PADI Equipment Specialist Course – If your old man is the type to spend hours in his man cave, tinkering with his tools and whatnots, then this PADI specialty course might just fit his interest – and make his next dives hassle-free! Here he can learn how to fix equipment problems, clean and maintain gears, and create a save-a-dive kit. Learn more here: [link]
  2. Local Dive Trips – Enjoying the warmer days on our side of the world? Make it more fun and sign up on a local dive trip with dad! Go on an expedition in underwater wrecks, drift diving, and more. You can check the list of local dive trips here: [link].
  3. Fun Dives in Tobermory – Take it up a notch and book a dive weekend with dad and the whole family in Tobermory and enjoy great visibility in the site this time of year! Plus, we are also running PADI Open Water and PADI Advance Open Water courses there. Learn more about the courses scheduled here: [link]
  4. Spring-Summer Treasure Hunt – Is dad the competitive type who likes the thrill of challenges – underwater challenges, specifically? This year’s treasure hunt might just feed his adventurous spirit with $2,000 worth of travel vouchers up for grabs! Register him to our annual event for only $40 and he can join a season-long hunt for the grand prize! Here’s how: [link]
  5. Scuba Refresher – If it seems too long ago since dad went scuba diving, then a scuba refresher session is just what he needs! For only $74.95, he can join a 1.5-hour session in our indoor pool and do a skills review with one of our divemasters or dive instructors. Conveniently, our refreshers are scheduled at 6:30 p.m., from Wednesdays to Fridays, and are inclusive of dive gear rentals and tank. Book him a session here:
