I had heard from Canadian friends about shipwreck scuba diving in Tobermory, Ontario, Canada. Divers Den of Tobermory worked with me to create a remarkable experience, tailored to weather conditions and my interests. As a diver without a buddy, they arranged a trip with two other divers who agreed to add the third dive that I so dearly wanted.
It's been 50 years since I began scuba diving, and in all those years, this trip was one of the most memorable.
Tracy was a delightful captain. A diver herself, she was attentive to weather, currents, and safety. She was also quite knowledgeable about the sites, anchorages and general area.
The dive took us to three sunken ships, as well as a grotto, a rock cave with both land and underwater entrances. The ships and underwater terrain were wonderful. Water clarity was stellar at up to one hundred feet.
Other than training dives, this was my first scuba excursion in fresh water, and the Georgian Bay of Lake Huron is truly cold water. My five millimeter gear was not going to be appropriate. Lynn and Larry Graham are the owners of Divers Den, and they fixed me up with 14 millimeters around the core and 7 mm elsewhere. Honestly, other than the initial shock of cold on my upper lip area, I was perfectly warm during all three dives. Lynn's estimate of the weight needed was dead on and I was able to experience lots of peak performance buoyancy time.
Prices were reasonable, much of the setup for the trip was accomplished by email, and the Divers Den team were as nice a group as I've met. Highly recommended for any level of experience.
