About the pool

The 77-metre pool is divided by two bulkheads, accommodating three sections for recreational fun and games, lessons, lane swimming and diving activities. The water depth ranges from very shallow at .83 metres to very deep at 4.94 metres. This allows the very young to touch bottom while learning to swim.

The Swirlpool is a favourite place to relax in warmer water while the hydrotherapy water jets create a spa-like feeling for young and old. The water depth ranges from 30 cm to 80 cm.

The pool decks are exceptionally wide to accommodate badminton, table tennis, children's play equipment, social area and our Birthday Party Places. Permanent bleachers with a capacity of 800 are located off the pool deck. The Complex is also home to the Thunderbolts Swim Club.

The Thunderslide

The Thunderslide is 73 metres of fun and excitement. It starts with amazing speed from the 10-metre tower and travels a figure-8, emptying with a tremendous splash into the pool. Riders can be seen through the translucent fibreglass material, providing a spectacle for all onlookers.

Diving

Our diving tower has three platforms: 5 metre, 7.5 metre and 10 metre, plus two 3-metre and two 1-metre springboards.

The Thunder Bay Diving Club programs provides recreational and competitive diving opportunities, plus Learn-To-Dive-Programs. Visit the Thunder Bay Diving Club for more information.
