I was super nervous about diving at all so tried the discover scuba course first and was hooked! Have issues with anxiety and confidence but Dave was a fantastic instructor who handled my fears and anxiety so well it gave me the confidence I needed to master the skills necessary!! Have my certification now thanks to his great patience, skills and knowledge. Great experience and highly recommend especially if you’re nervous or need some extra confidence and patience.

My daughters and I took the 'Discover Scuba' class with Dave. He was supportive and reassuring, for our anxious crew. We signed up for our open water course and completed the in-class and in-pool sessions with Kelly. She was another great instructor! The following weekend we did our open water dives. The team of people that helped us (Sue, Melissa, Dave, Bill and Kyle) are to be commended for the way that they support and care for their clients. Customer service and quality care are at the forefront of all they do! It is so refreshing to see a company being run with such thoughtfulness. I highly recommend trying the 'Discover Scuba' class. It was one of the best decisions that I have ever made for personal growth. I am excited to try the 'Peak Performance' class to help build confidence and skill! So much gratitude to this company!

Great people, best service in the industry.
Dave is by far one of the best instructors I have met, very knowledgeable, patient and positive - all traits that should be if you are teaching I would recommend anyone who is thinking on taking up recreational diving to consider certifying with him. It has been a absolute pleasure dealing with them.

Barrie Scuba house is definitely a world class operation. Not only is it a full service scuba shop but it provides a fun environment to become part of the dive community. I have been on several trips that have been organized through the store and have had a great time on all of them. Thanks to Dave & Karen, Sue and Daryl.

One of the best Dive shops in the area. Knowledge Staff, with a large selection of Scuba and Tec gear. They even carry mask for kids. Behind the main building is a beautiful indoor pool and large class room right off the pool deck. All there Instructors are great people that are easy to get a long with. I have quite a few dives with this shop and every dive I have come up with a smile. If you want to know how to dive or want to up grade your skills this really is the dive shop for you.
Thank-you Dave and everyone who helped out this weekend. Very professional and contentious group of divers. Josh and I felt we were in excellent hands and enjoyed the weekend very much. Highly recommended diving course .

Good selection of items and knowledgeable staff. They seem to carry mid- range to higher-end items which gives a good selection of choose from. This is one of few scuba stores where the staff don't come across as having a big chip on their shoulder; they were very pleasant here.

Have a great scuba school along with a pretty well stocked store. The best are the people running the store. They are true scuba divers.
