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 it very accessible.

Some of the shipwrecks 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.

Accommodations:  More details will be in the dive plan emailed a week or so before the dive.
