International Diving Centre takes pride in professionalism and quality service in every aspect of our Vancouver dive shop. We aim to develop and serve happy, competent, safe divers. We truly believe that BC has some of the best diving in the world and want to share the underwater world with new and experienced divers alike.
Our shop is centrally located in Vancouver proper. Our facility is approximately 5-10 minutes from the downtown core in the neighbourhood of Kitsilano. We are also about 10 minutes from the main campus of UBC. It is easily accessible on major bus routes, including the 99B-Line that runs along the Broadway corridor. We are located at 2572 Arbutus Street, which is between Broadway and 10th Avenue.
International Diving Centre is not just another dive shop. We are here to make both your local and foreign diving experiences as enjoyable and safe as possible.
Our rental equipment (the same as that used for scuba courses) is well-maintained and contemporary. We firmly believe in using and providing functional equipment for our local environment. View our scuba rental page for full details about availability, packages, pricing, et cetera.
At IDC we also have a wide variety of scuba and snorkeling equipment for sale in our Vancouver dive shop. Our staff are happy to consult with divers and snorkelers (or those purchasing gifts) to find the appropriate gear for their individual diving needs and aspirations. Whether you are a novice or a professional, looking for your first set of gear or purchasing a technical diving set up, our dive shop has the equipment for you and staff that can help you choose, assemble and fit your new gear.
We encourage those investing in major pieces of scuba equipment to join us on our fun dives in order to gain familiarity with new equipment with patient and helpful professionals nearby to help you seamlessly integrate it into your diving.
If you are interested in making a purchase from our dive shop, but can’t make it to the Lower Mainland, we can ship to all of Canada and many international locations. Our online sales pages are full service and we have a toll free number which will gain you access to our in-store staff if you have further questions.
