As unexperienced OWDs we are always looking for new opportunities to broaden our horizon - so cold water diving in sweet water was definitely new to us. The staff was amazing in every aspect providing support and advice in these new conditions. It was definitely eyeopening and we are so thankful for making it so easy! And, since we were asked to return our DM and get him home safely, we made sure to keep an eye on him ;) and yeah it was f@?€&“@ cold. In all honesty, you did a great job and we are looking forward to go diving soon. Thanks Julian and the Team!

Objectively - Everything was organized and ran according to schedule/plan. 5 other divers besides myself and staff/crew and they were all content. Some repeat divers. Equipment was in good working order. Boat got to the site and back with no issues. Captain made sure to have a safety briefing with all passengers (more than once in case anyone missed it the first time) Subjectively - Was there for my Shipwreck and Nitrox certifications. Lonny was my instructor and I had the good fortune of having him as my instructor one-on-one. That's always advantageous. He was very patient with me and answered all my questions. Even with the tasks I struggled with he was helpful and understanding, never a moment's frustration or impatience. The shop as a whole does have a casual vibe to it, but none of that led to any thoughts or concerns for my safety. All equipment was suitable and no one had any issues requiring. The boat is no yacht - but then I haven't been on a dive boat that is. Okay, that's not true - I have done a live-aboard experience once. But the rest of them were no yachts! And the site - well, it was Niagara II. Sits at approximately 100ft/30m at its deepest. Fairly in-tact and a few places to breach the hull. My first fresh-water experience, so the lack of marine life was quite unfamiliar territory for me. And of course, the water's cold. Nothing anyone can do about that. All said and done, I will return to dive with them again.

A friend and I decided to take the 3 day open water certification here at Diver's Den in Tobermory. We were in very good hands. Rich and Julian were very encouraging and patient instructors. Although we didn't finish the course, due to our our need to slow things down, we really appreciated how the guys adapted to our pace and remained focussed on giving us the best experience. Reflecting on it, learning the open water course in 3 days was not going to work for me. I needed to slow down and take more time -- with the gear, the feeling of breathing underwater and to build my confidence before getting into the late Sept bay with cooler, choppy water. Due to cooler water, we used a full wet-suit with hood and gloves, and that made it a bit harder. Still we had fun! Honestly! it was really stimulating to be out there swimming in the fresh water with the shipwrecks. Would totally recommend this place, especially if you are in the warmer months and/or further along in your scuba knowledge. Will be back!

The people working at Divers Den know there job, we originally planned diving some of the Tobermory wrecks in 2020, but du to covid we needed to reschedule our trip to 2021. All planning was tru email and the team was very helpful with our wishes. We booked a total of 9 dives, but eventually ended up making 13 dives, 8 were boat dives, the rest we made from shore. The captain’s of the dove charters know there wrecks, and can tell you a lot on the history on them. Mike, Kelly and the rest of the team, thanks a lot, I hope you guys enjoyed the beers.

Excellent service by the staff, attentive and efficient. Air fills quick and simple. Had 2 so-so dives on Saturday, weather was lousy but on Sunday weather was good and 2 excellent dives on the Niagara. Definitely worth the 6 hour drive for me.
