Visitors’ Tips:
  • Re-entry free with the hand-stamp
  • Please be ready to show receipts for the purchased gear at the exit
  • Large bags and bulky coats not allowed
  • Come early for best selection – discounted prices on selected items after noon (details on pricing below)

Selling at Scuba Swap
Bring your gear on Friday to register it - and we do everything else! You just need to pick up your cheque and unsold gear at the end of the Swap on Saturday.

  • Equipment drop off and registration: Friday 6:00–9:00 pm
  • Unsold equipment and money pick-up: Saturday 3:30–4:30 pm

We encourage pricing the items aggressively for sale. Pricing experts available to help you determine the appropriate price, but the final decision is the seller’s. Two prices can be specified:

  • Initial price
  • Discount price – if the item does not sell by noon, you can opt to have its price lowered

Neither price can be under $5 – please bundle smaller items together.

  • Registration fee: $10 includes up to 10 items. 50¢ for each addtional item.
  • Commission: 10% of the value sold.

OUE Scuba Swap gathers a number of organizations, dive stores and sponsors (see the side bar). Our goal is to promote SCUBA sport — if you would like to participate in the future swaps, please contact us and we will do our best to accomodate.


The Swap visitors enter the draw for a variety of free gear donated by participating Dive Stores.

The event is organized by the members and friends of the Ontario Underwater Explorers scuba club who join before April. Volunteer sign-up happens on March 12, 2020 7:45 - 9:15 at the Etobicoke Olympium Main Foor Meeting Room. There we will be explaining the responsibilities of the different volunteer roles - if you'd like to contact us earlier, send us an email at swap@ouescuba.com.
