What is SUCI’s Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) program?

Our next DSD will be on

March 24th, 2021.

SUCI's DSD Program is a fun, inexpensive, exciting, and learning-packed introduction to scuba diving. It is invaluable for making an informed decision about taking SUCI's Open Water Diver certification course.

When do you hold DSD events?

We typically hold DSD events twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. In 2021 we'll hold DSDs on March 24th and September 22nd, and all will run from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.. Registration closes at 5:00 p.m. on the preceding Wednesdays.  

Where do you hold them?

SUCI holds DSD events at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre (TPASC) at 875 Morningside Avenue (just south of Highway 401).

How do I sign up?

Simply fill out and submit our DSD Pre-Registration form and we'll get right back to you. Attendance is limited to 6 DSD and 6 OWD participants on a first-come, first-served basis, so to avoid disappointment sign up early.

How much does it cost, and what do I get for my money?

The cost is $45 per person per session which we require you to pay by eTransfer (preferred), cheque, or cash before close of registration. Here’s what you get for your money:

  • Classroom instruction & learning
  • Pool instruction (both above and under water), learning, excitement, and fun on scuba
