Advanced conditions for Advanced Open Water!

A big congratulations goes out to Kendra, Chad and Hillary for completing their Advanced Open Water (AOW) course with us last week. They had to over come AOW conditions, (which Georgian Bay obliged) in terms of waves, moderate current and low visibility. After two days of shore diving we took to the dive boat and completed the course with a couple ship wreck dives on the Mapledawn and the Marquette. Every one did really well and most of all we had a great time doing it! Congrats and we wish you many great dive adventures in the future!

Tropical Lake!

Well done to Isaac (12yrs) for gaining his Junior OW certification and his dad Clayton for ReActivating his PADI Open Water certification after 20 year. Those guys were great, knocking out every skill with ease and confidence. The lake reached an all time high this week of 27oC, on the surface!! We were actually hot in our 5mm suits! Good work guys, we wish you many great dive adventures to come and hopefully inspired young Isaac to become a budding marine biologist!

Peak diving conditions, and a whole lot of fun!

A big congratulations go out to Alan and Tatiana for completing their PADI Open Water certification this week with us. What a fun few days we had together, and it was incredible to watch those guys overcome their apprehensions, challenging skills and become proficient and comfortable divers. We were blessed again with calm water, sunny skies, a curious small mouth bass and peak water temperatures of 25oC on the top and 23oC at depth. We hope to see those guys back here in the near future for the Advanced Open Water or perhaps a local wreck charter. Great work guys, and safe diving!

Free diving our local shipwreck - The Mapledawn

What a fantastic weekend for a family free dive / snorkel trip out to our local shipwreck the impressive Mapledawn. With incredibly warm water (24oC), there was no need for wetsuits, and just look at that visibility!! At 350 ft, there is plenty to see from bow to stern, like the massive quadruple expansion engine and propeller. This site is very suitable for all levels of snorkeler due to its relatively shallow location, the deepest point, just 12m at the Propeller. It is also a great habitat for small mouth bass, I counted over 30 during the 45 minute session. We will be back soon Mapledawn with our next group of Advanced Open Water students!!
