    Visiting Vancouver Jan 2019 - looking for ccr tank rentals

    With a group of friends we are going to spend 10 days diving in Vancouver.

    We are looking to rent ccr tanks for 3 rEvo rebreather divers.
    First couple of days we are staying in Burnaby and are looking for a shop where we could rent the tanks.

    We checked at Ocean Quest Dive Centre but they do not have the ccr tanks.

    Anyone knows where we could rent the tanks?

    Not sure where to get rb support in Vancouver after Edge closed up. If you go to Vancouver Island these guys
    http://www.nanaimodiveoutfitters.ca have boosted o2 helium sorb and tank rental. As well as a nice boat to dive off of and of course Nanaimo diving is way better than Vancouver ;)
    Cheers,

    I live in Vancouver and dive here. You can get tanks filled here, but not much else.

    As Dave says, the diving off Vancouver Isl. is better and there is good rebreather support in Nanaimo and Courtney.

    We do have some nice dives here. Sadly I donít know anyone with rEvo tanks for rent.

    The plan is to dive Howe Sound the first two days.
    We than plan to go to Campbell.

    Any feedback on those locations?

    Thanks

    At this time of the year the shore diving is compromised by the run off from melting snow. There are two good operators running dive boats in Howe sound and either can take you to great dive sites.

    Campbell River on Vancouver Island has a local boat operator also and is a good bet for boat diving.

    Drop me a PM and I will give you contact details.

    IDC has helium and oxygen in Vancouver, but I don't know if they rent rebreather tanks.
