Fall Scuba Diving and Night Diving

Posted by on in Adventures
Fall scuba diving is our favourite time for local dives. This is when the crowds are less and the fish encounters are better. Cooler evenings and mornings, cooler water temperatures, fading sunlight and shorter daylight hours. This means when diving, wear full cold water suits, bring warm cloths to put on after the dive and a blanket or warm up jacket. So when are our sunset dives? WEDNESDAYS!Start times will be at 6pm for briefings starting September 11th. As we will now find ourselves diving through dusk and even into the dark Non night certified divers will need to be out of the water 30 minutes prior to sunset. Divers that are advanced or night certified can dive past sunset. In addition, all divers and floats will need to be marked with a light.  Ever wanted to expand your diving into the night? Become a Night Scuba Diver. Night diving introduces us to a whole new underwater world. Even a local dive site which you have been on several times takes on a new perspective at night. The change of day brings out different fish, life forms, creatures and plant life as the nocturnal become active at night. They...

Top 3 Dive Sites in Barrie, Ontario

Posted by on in Adventures
DIVE LOCAL!!!Barrie Scuba Diving Spots Looking for a great place to scuba dive in Barrie, Ontario? Here are 3 sites recommended by our club (4ddiving & adventures). They offer a variety of diving experiences for divers of all levels. Best of all they are all family friendly! Take the family and make a day of it. There are things to do for divers and non-divers alike. The wreck of the J.C. Morrison was a one sided paddle wheeler that was about 150 feet in length. At the time there were many ships that travelled Lake Simcoe carrying passengers and freight and the J. C. Morrison was the grandest of them all. Late one night in 1857 the ship caught fire at the old Barrie docks and to save all the wooden vessels and docs it was set adrift in Kempenfelt Bay. The wreck is located to the right of the fountain at Centennial Beach and is only a 10 minute swim from shore. There is an underwater path to follow out that starts to the right and at about 12 feet of depth.This wreck sits if a few pieces at a depth of 30 feet and has a marker buoy...
