Aquarius Scuba welcomes you to Newfoundland, Canada.

 

Just beyond the shorelines of Conception Bay South are the most spectacular dive opportunities in North America. Join us on an adventure of a lifetime with Ocean Quest Adventures, located in Newfoundland, Canada, and “dive” into many areas of our great Canadian tourism. WWII shipwrecks, reefs, wall dives, and more! Experience the rich diving opportunities that grace these waters. And it's all in your very own backyard, Canada. 

 

Why is Newfoundland such a popular diving destination? What makes divers from all over the world dive into these chilly Atlantic waters? There are many reasons, but one of them is born out of respect for WWII history. In 1942, Nazi Germany twice attacked Newfoundland. Due to the strikes, four ships sank and remain on the bottom of the ocean to this day. There are so many artifacts still intact on these wrecks, like guns, radios, and portholes. These wrecks are enormous, and leaves you wanting to dive the same wrecks over and over, as you barely scratch the surface with just a few dives. 

Bell Island is unbelievably beautiful with amazing coral reefs and marine life, with the chance of seeing humpback whales! If you're cave diver certified, you can dive the Bell Island Mine. You can also experience the thrill of diving with the icebergs, which can be seen in the area from May-June. 

You will be staying in a modern lodge in the heart of beautiful Conception Bay South, NL, Canada. You will enjoy the many ocean views and be minutes from all the action! Designed for adventurers, the Ocean Quest Lodge is a perfect home away from home. 

Come a stranger, leave as family to the locals.
