Ice Floe Races

Ice Floe Race

In 2013, OUC will be celebrating the 50th Ice Floe Race.

The Ice Floe Race was originally an event organized by the Trident Scuba Club of Peterborough. After the club became defunct, OUC took over the event and has kept in running for a number of years.

Some of the events recently held

OUE Scuba Swap
Ontario Underwater Explorers (OUE) has been around since 1965 and has been hosting swaps since 1992. New and used gear is offered in the area of more than 6000 sq.ft., making it the largest event of this kind in the province. It gathers divers, dive shops and enthusiasts from all over - a great opportunity to buy at great prices, to sell to motivated buyers - or just to meet old buddies and have a chat. click here to go to the website
