Canada Day 2012 and another successful underwater poker dive at Twin Lakes, just southwest of Edmonton, Alberta. Thirty nine divers explored the lake for hidden poker chips to turn in for playing cards back on the surface. Top poker hands won some fantastic prizes like a BCD, Divescapes Gold Pass, Oceaner wetsuit, Tusa mask & snorkel, Henderson hood & gloves, Saekodive rollerbag. Partipants went home with a lunch bag full of diving accessories and goodies. Raffle draws raised $470 for dock maintenance at Twin Lakes, prizes included an Armor Bag, Tusa mask & snorkel, and a camear mask. Thank you volunteers and divers! TheDiveOutfitters.ca

The one thing that Canadian diving has that Caribbean diving does not..... ice diving! Watch hilarious footage from The Dive Outfitters ice diving course in February 2010 out at Twin Lakes (south of Edmonton, Alberta near Winfield). Awesome weather & lots of sunshine.
