Back in the drink for a Canadian Neighbor!

It is true what they say, It is just like riding a bicycle! After a four year absence from the sport, Johnnie-Mike from Toronto (shown here) found his SCUBA grove again! After a shallow reef dive to regain comfort, I took him to my newly discovered dive site and at 95ft, I managed to grab this nice shot of him completely immersed on a very healthy reef. Great work JM, it was a pleasure and we welcome you to come dive with us again this summer on Georgian Bay!

Great Diving here on Andros!

What a fantastic few days diving and exploring our deeper reefs, shipwreck and in land blue hole system with my new buddy Andy. While he was polishing his extensive dive skills in deeper diving I was able to have a play with my new video light. It is absolutely amazing the difference a good light can make, even with a standard GoPro 4, I was able to bring out some great colour from the reef. At the end of our dive series we tucked out of the rough seas and jumped in our most frequented cavern, El Dorado. By tweaking the brightness down by 50% I am able to show you guys the Blind Cave Fish and incredible flow stone that lines the interior of the cave. It was great to don sidemount gear again

What an incredible find!!!

For the first time in my diving career I got to witness one of natures greatest spectacles, a Nassau Grouper spawning aggregation event. On January 01, one day prior to the full moon me and my two dive guest dropped in to a newly discovered site close to the Andros wall. We were absolutely gob smacked to see between 500 - 1000 2-3ft Nassau Groupers waiting for us!! We could see their swollen bellies and fish all manner of reproduction coloration as they surrounded us for 25 minutes of bottom time. This is not only an incredible find for our divers but also for the ecology of the area as the Nassau Grouper is considered Endangered. These fish will return to this area over 3- full moon cycles
