Tobermory harbour & Shipwrecks (All year)

This package includes tours to the classic sights of Tobermory. This is a great option for beginner divers who want to improve their diving and also see incredible shipwrecks. We’ll take you to the Alice G and the Sweepstakes shipwrecks, and depending on your goals, do some deeper diving as well to a maximum of 18m.

Half Way (mid April - end of June)

Half Way Log Dump is a funny name, but it is one of the best dive sites in all of Ontario, and arguably all of Canada. In the spring months, the water is clear featuring beautiful ripples of sand contrasted by large boulders closer to shore. It is particularly stunning for photography. This place can be enjoyed by a beginner to the most advanced diver.


Ice Diving (mid January - end of march)

Ice diving is the pinnacle of diving in Canada. The water in the winter months is cold, but beautiful. The surreal sights of the ice above your head as you dive down is something you’ll never forget. This experience caters to more advanced divers, or people with a high level of comfort in the water.

Come see where dreams meet reality.
