Upcoming Vacation Trips


British Columbia-Nanaimo & Campbell River-June 22-30, 2019

warbonnet in canadaCanada is AWESOME and it has some of the best cold water diving you will find.  Our trip will take us to British Columbia, Vancouver Island diving wrecks, walls and reefs. Diving British Columbia is HOT because they have wrecks, deep vertical walls and marine life like you never seen before. They have wolf eels, large metridums, tons of small inveterate life, giant pacific octopus, many colorful fish and much more. Add the topside beauty of the mountains and trees and it is hard to beat!

Canada-Thousand Islands Wreck Trip-Aug. 24 to Sept. 1, 2019

canada brockville wreckThe Thousand Islands area along the St. Lawrence River has gained critical acclaim as being the "World's Best Fresh Water Scuba Diving" destination. The main reason for this is the wrecks and their artifacts, submerged structures, old bottle collecting, 72 degree water temperature (in August) and no thermoclines. This area is located between Montreal and Toronto, in Ontario, Canada along the USA and Canada border.
