Ontario Underwater Explorers Scuba Club's 25th

Big 25th Swap coming up this year!

Ain't time flying when you're having fun! The big, silver, 25th Scuba Swap is coming up this year!

So it's been a quarter of the century - more, really, as we've skipped a year - since we gathered for the first time to swap SCUBA gear, SCUBA stories, SCUBA experience, SCUBA fun.

Again we'll have lots of used gear - most that you'll ever see in one place, at one time, in Ontario. We aim to provide best experience for both the buyers and sellers; our friendly gear experts will be at hand to help make the gear competitively priced - best way to make sure it is sold; you can also take a peek at our buying tips. Dive stores will also bring more gear - check the list of participants, we'll keep it up to date.

The social aspect of the Swap has been gaining momentum in the recent years. Meeting other divers and watching interesting presentations will not fail this year either. This year's Swap will be hosted at the Rameses Shriners Hall, 124 Queen's Plate Drive in Etobicoke. It is conveniently located at Highway 27 and Rexdale Blvd, right across from Woodbine Racetrack and kitty-corner from Woodbine Shopping Centre and Fantasy Fair.

We've chosen the venue particularly to allow our gathering to be more social, and we plan some surprises to make the unsold gear collection more pleasant.

Mark the date - April 28 and 29, 2017. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

We've done it again!

For the twenty-fourth time, we kept calm and swapped on; the new venue was smaller than the previous one - and you brought us more gear!

This year, the cosy and classy Argonaut Rowing Club set the Swap against the beautiful background of Lake Ontario.

The main area with the private gear and the stores was as busy and ever, and the separated lobby made it more convenient for the participating organizations. The presentations particularly benefited from the comfy and quieter atmosphere, encouraging the visitors to engage.

We wish to thank all the participants for making the event a success - private sellers, stores, organizations. Special thank you goes to our sponsors - All Star Liveaboards, Ocean Divers and Emocean Sports.

We were particularly grateful to our presenters - one would be hard pressed to match the line-up we had on Saturday!

And last but not the least - this wouldn't have happened without our volunteers and, of course, all of you who came this year! Thank you and hope to see you again...

What's happening...
