Looking for a bit of adventure in the Cornwall and counties region this summer? Look no further than O2ToGo Dive Centre! Whether you are thinking of diving for the first time or you are a seasoned diver looking for a local community that shares the same hobby, O2ToGo Dive Centre should be your first stop.
O2ToGo offers diving products, servicing of equipment, training and the opportunity to meet a thriving local diving community. For locals and tourists alike, O2ToGo offers equipment sales and rentals for both snorkel and scuba gear. If you have your own equipment, you can get your oxygen tanks refilled at their Pitt Street location.
For years owner Steve Guindon worked side-by-side with Ron MacDonald building Ron’s Scuba Shop up to be Cornwall and area’s go-to dive centre. In 2015, Ron decided to pass the baton over to Steve, closing down Ron’s Scuba shop. When one business closed another rose to took its place, and so O2ToGo began.
In the three years since they’ve opened their doors, 02ToGo have established themselves as the leader of diver knowledge in the region. They offer introductory diving courses to prepare participants for unsupervised diving experiences. The St. Lawrence River has many remarkable dive locations such as the historic lock system, the Mille Roches Power House and many shipwrecks to explore. For those visiting the area or looking for more information on local dive sites, Cornwall Tourism can provide you with resources and guidance on their website.
Many clients opt to take the initial diving course before heading on vacation so that they aren’t spending their time learning the ins and outs of scuba and can instead head straight for the points of interest they aim to see. To facilitate this, O2togo organizes trips to various diving hot spots around the world. In 2018, they travelled to Honduras and Cuba for dive trips. For the upcoming year, a trip to St. Kitts has been organized is scheduled for April.
02ToGo plays a big role in supporting the Seaway Valley Divers, the most prominent dive community in the area. The club offers members the chance to save money on charters, social gatherings and a sense of security as safety is a priority during all club-organized dives. You can reach out to O2ToGo if you’d like additional information on the club.
