Scuba Diving Tobermory; a premiere scuba Canada dive spot
The Fathom Five National Park makes scuba diving
Tobermory extremely desirable.
The crystal clear waters, countless ship wreaks and underwater
limestone caves make this a top scuba Canada site.
The only drawback are the icy cold waters which are even cold in the
middle of August. This means full wet suits even in the summer to
explore Tobermory's underwater beauty.
When you walk around Little Tub harbour you will notice old fishing
boats that have been converted into dive boats. You might even spot
some divers in the harbour.
There are a number of dive shops that you can hire to take you out to
see the wreaks or get your certification. The most prominent is Divers
Den. In fact Tobermory's medical clinic is one of the few places in
Canada to have a Hyperbaric dive chamber, making it one of the safer
scuba Canada areas to dive.
Even through the 20 historical shipwrecks are a big draw for diving
enthusiasts to Tobermory it isn't the only reason this site is popular.
Tobermory also has geological pull as well. The archipelago of 19
islands formed out of limestone rock allows you to peak back in time.
You can see submerged forests, canyons and underwater waterfalls. Check
out the remains of ancient coral or watch the current wildlife swim by.
Even if you aren't into scuba diving you can still experience the
underwater beauty of Tobermory. Snorkeling, snuba and glass bottom boat
rides are all available out of Little Tub Harbour.
