Description:

  • Recreactional dives for certified divers who become members of Blue North Scuba. Join now — we are open to all certified divers
  • Diving from the Georgian Ranger boat, boarding at the Cedar Point dock.
  • Some of the shipwrecks include the following: 
  • Many of the shipwrecks are in the 10m / 30’ depth range, with only one or two in the 20m / 60’ depth range.
  • Shallower dives tend to be warmer, so for thermal protection, all you need is a wetsuit with hood, boots, and gloves. You do not need to bring or rent a drysuit.
  • The dives are suitable for a range of experience in diving, and are ideal for getting back underwater again.
  • There will be 4 to 6 dives for the weekend.
