ICE DIVING

Ice diving is one of the most unique experiences you will ever have as a diver. This package features a full day trip to the Northern Bruce Peninsula where you will see for yourself the beauty that lies beneath the ice.

For a day tour in the winter months, we will begin at 6-7am pick-up time, and end around 8-9pm when we will drop you off back home.  If you live in the GTA, Geoff will pick you up in a luxury SUV and drive to the dive site. The ice in the greater Tobermory area can vary from year to year, but the best months are typically February and March when the water temperatures are lowest.

The specific dive site can also vary greatly depending on the conditions. Tobermory Harbour, the Sweepstakes shipwreck, Little Cove, and Lion’s Head Harbour are the prime spots we look out for when the ice comes. Depending on your skills and goals, we can dive other locations as well.

Pricing starts at $3000 per person, up to a maximum of 3 people.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What do I get out of this experience?

Tours with Geoff and Andrew are full of adventure, good conversation, and learning.

Not to worry, we can supply you with wetsuits, masks, snorkels, fins, gloves and booties. Everything you need we can cover it. 

How long does it take to drive to Tobermory? 

Depending on the time of year, it usually takes 3.5 to 4 hours to drive to Tobermory. This can vary depending on if we need to stop for restroom breaks, and/or food. 

Do I need to supply my own food?

Yes. We do supply complimentary hot tea and some snacks, but we recommend you to bring your own snacks and lunch for the day. We can also stop for food on the drive up. 

What if the weather is bad?

Depending on the season, the weather in Tobermory can be harsh. If you book a day with us and the weather is forecasted to be sour, we can either take a chance, or reschedule at your discretion. 

Do I need to give a deposit?

Yes. We do require a 40% up front non-refundable retainer to reserve your tour. If for some reason you need to cancel or reschedule, no worries.

What if I need to cancel? 

We ask that if you need to cancel for any circumstance, that you notify us beyond 24 hours of the tour date. If something comes up and you need to cancel the tour outright, we have the right to hold the retainer as will be agreed to in the formal contract. Any fees paid beyond the 40% retainer will be refunded.
