Canada, the northernmost country in North America, has ten provinces and three territories and extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and north into the Arctic. It has a low population density, and its large landmass makes it the second largest country in the world. Exploring Canada, you will find vast areas of quiet forests, serene coastlines, and immense biodiversity waiting to be discovered by adventurers.

The last wild frontier, Canada, has a well-kept secret: the spectacular diving that can be done here. This country has a small population and a large landmass with innumerable natural attractions to explore. Canada offers great dive sites with some of the world’s most intact underwater ecosystems. The Pacific Ocean surrounds Canada on the west, the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Arctic Ocean on the north, and its interior has more lakes than any other country in the world, making it a special place with endless diving possibilities for fresh and saltwater diving. Diving in Canada is an unparalleled experience, as you will only find cold-water diving here. Dive in Canada and admire unique species and a breathtaking underwater world.
