Exploration Diving Services

About us 

Steve Blanchard started Exploration Diving Services in Ottawa, Canada, to cater the needs of the diving explorer in all of us across the world. We are dedicated to high quality service at reasonable prices. Steve Blanchard is our GUE Instructor. He offers training, as well as mentorship to those who wish to explore our aquatic resources and history. Global Underwater Explorers offers the highest quality of diving instruction in the world. We encourage the ongoing efforts in research, conservation, and exploration of our aquatic realm. 

We have the full line of quality SUEX diving propulsion vehicle products, parts and service. With over eighteen years experience, we want to give back to the dive community, help with conservation, exploration, and reasearch efforts. We are here to help the diving community be safe, grow, explore, and of course, keep our equipment ready for the task at hand.



I have always had a passion for all things aquatic. In 1997, I was certified open water in Les Escoumins, Quebec.  In 2002, I moved to Ottawa, Ontario, where I started exploring the beauty of fresh water wreck diving. I built many years of diving experience world wide. My first training course with GUE was more of a life changing experience. After many years of diving, training, and hard work, I became a Canadian GUE Instructor in 2009. I enjoy exploring sites of the St. Lawrence River, cave/wreck diving, and proud to help out in the ongoing efforts of the WKPP and MCEP Projects. I am also co-founder of GUE Ontario and our local Project Baseline. I am lucky enough to have support from my friends, family, and my wife, Chantelle Blanchard, who loves to write reports of our adventures and take photographs.
