The surroundings of Tobermory, ON are spectacular. I have been diving in Tobermory several times, and every time I enjoy it. If you bring non divers, its easy for them to enjoy the boat rides, or go out by themselves and enjoy nature, while hiking, kayaking or engaging in other outdoor adventures.

Every time I have booked my dives with Divers Den. The people are friendly and helpful and accommodate my requests. Trips are well organized. Boats are comfortable and right for the job. When I come back, I will certainly book with Divers Den again.

The wrecks of Tobermory are ok. The Arabia is a great experience when you come down the bow mooring line and suddenly see the ship appear in the darkness. There can be currents and it's cold. The Niagara is a favorite of many divers because of the penetration options it offers. These would be my two top picks. Some of the other wrecks are interesting also, but many are not more than a pile of woods. Nevertheless, the surroundings, the history and the clear, cold water make for awesome dives.

Before you dive, you will need to register at the Visitor Center and purchase a diving permit. A one-day permit will be around 5$, an annual permit is 20$.

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.

I'm an avid NDL diver, and have been diving with them for years, several times a year.
A full service shop, and there boats are tugs converted into dive boats equipped with heads, covered area, and all safety and nav equipment.
Captains Dave and John will have you educated and entertained.
Will be diving with them again at the end of June.
