360 Virtual Reality Shoot- MARYWARD

Here is a clip of that beautiful summer day off Collingwood filming the Mary Ward shipwreck. Part of a local historical awareness program, I got to use 360 cameras and be the dive model. This teaser trailer is just a snapshot of that underwater filming day and an insight in to what is available in virtual reality at the Blue Mountain Museum. Great local collaboration involving Fire and Rescue, GBD and Mountain Goat Film Company Inc. The Mary Ward grounded just off Craigleith on Milligan's reef during calm water on November 24th 1872. Shortly after midnight, the weather began to turn and by morning a fierce storm was blowing. Eight desperate men made for shore in a life boat, but were quick

Curious Hawksbill

One of my all time favourite animals that can be found on a tropical reef is the Hawksbill Turtle. These guys get so engrossed in there favourite food, sponges, that they don't mind divers approaching them. This one was so comfortable with us that she actually came right up to the camera, and bit it! Listen to the bite moment! Sharing a moment with these creatures takes you way back in time, as they predate the dinosaurs! Just Incredible!

Delayed Opening - July 15

Each year, as May arrives, we begin our transition from our tropical (Caribbean) home to our summer dive training location on Georgian Bay. This year is very different. For obvious reasons we will be pushing back our summer opening to July 15 and will only start to take bookings after June 15, when we know more about what we can and can't do in our lakes. Remember we only offer very private PADI training, ideal for couples and family members and will NOT be organizing any charters this season. Stay safe, stay at home, lets hope to get through this ASAP.

Until next year!

What an incredible season! As our winter season is cut short, we say good bye to the spectacular Humpback Whales that have impressed us over the last 3 months. This year we were able to identify at least 10 individuals (still ongoing), record singing males, observe mothers and calves and explore new very fruitful areas. We are already looking forward to an even more spectacular next season! As the world tourism grinds to a halt, we will be looking at returning to Georgian Bay and promoting scuba dive training and adventures closer to home, of course when permitted to do so. In these uncertain times we need to keep our passions alive!
