Description: Our charter operator will be River Divers. Neptunes Locker Dive Shop is located on Southern Georgian Bay Tiny township 12km outside Penetanguishene and can fill the dive tanks. Tanks fills are $7.00 for Air and $16.00 for Nitrox + HST. Store hours will be posted on their website in April.

Southern Georgian Bay is one of the best places in Ontario for diving, located just over 2 hours away from Toronto and an hour away from smaller cities such as Barrie, Collingwood, Orillia and Wasaga Beach. Making it a short commute and an ideal place for divers and non divers to find a multitude of activities.

With warm water temperatures and moderate visibility it reduces the need for thick wetsuits, hoods and gloves allowing new divers to feel more confident and excel in their skills. It also allows for easy multiple dives in a single day saving time and money. Our wrecks and dive sites are shallow in water depth and mainly located within seven miles which makes is very accessible.

Some of ship wrecks include The Mapledawn - Steel Bulk Carrier, Lottie Wolfe - Schooner, Michigan - Lifting Barge, Thomas Cranage - Lakes Longest Wooden Steamer, Marquette - Schooner - Most Intact of Area Wrecks.
