Explore the underwater world at home in Ontario.
Local diving is REALLY COOL!
Diving in Ontario is a little bit different than the diving you may have experienced down south.
The water temperature is cooler which requires the use of a 7mm wet suit or dry suit. You will also need to wear a hood and gloves.
The local charters are also more of a taxi service to get you to the wrecks and dive sites, nothing more. There is normally no divemaster on board or in the water with you. This is where we come in.
Aquasub run charters include:
- A PADI certified Pro to brief you and help in any way we can throughout the day.
- Hot Soup and Hot Drinks like tea, coffee, hot chocolate on ALL of our boat charters.
- Oppourtunities to complete training dives on most of our charters
- We will match you with an appropriate dive buddy if you need one
If you have never been diving locally you will need to sign up for a Discover Local Scuba Diving course. This program will have a PADI pro with you for your first 2 dives on the boat and in the water. They'll help you get sorted with the equipment, buoyancy and show you around the dive sites.
Our dive trip weekends are for the charter trip fees only. You will need to make arrangements for accommodations (we have lodge and tent spaces for Tobermory!), transportation and equipment. We have rentals available and on some trips we have have group accommodations available too.
Join us in Tobermory!
The shipwreck capital of Canada, Tobermory is home to a great many wrecks at depths suitable for divers from new to experienced. We have charters running every month with convenient accommodations at the Trail's End Lodge as well. With two different charter boats going out each day, you can pick your preference of the deeper wrecks or the shallow wrecks and we provide a fantastic dinner on Saturday evening for everyone!
Join us in Southern Georgian Bay (Penetanghuishene)
Monthly day trips on the Georgian Explorer are one of the most popular charters trips we offer. These trips feature a 3 dive day on the shallow wrecks near Christian and Hope Islands like the Marquette, Michigan and Maple Dawn (The 3M's!) These charters include a hot lunch, hot and cold drinks all day and a light breakfast of fruit. Perfect for every diver!
Join us in Kingston
The Kingston area features a TON of great dive sites at all depths. These dives are a great place to work on your Advanced Open Water Diver certification and is always a great trip.
Join us in Brockville / St. Lawrence River
The warmest dive sites in Ontario, the river is home to a lot of different dive sites from beginner to advanced divers. The river features current diving and an abundance of fish life. Brockville is a great spot for fun and for training dives!
Join us in Shanty Bay
Shanty Bay is a great local beach entry that features a half dozen sunken boats as well as a menagerie of other items located through a detailed navigation line. Shanty Bay has a simple, beach entry with a slow, gradual decent that can reach beyond 100 feet. It is the perfect spot for practice and training dives for submariners of all skill levels!
Join us in Humber Bay
We have frequent evening trips organized out of Humber Bay Park West aboard the River Diver charter. These two-tank charters visit two shipwrecks - The Lymon Davis and The Sligo and depart the dock at 6:30 PM on scheduled evenings. They make a great, inexpensive interruption to your work week. These dives are great for fun dives and for training dives and seating is limited so grab a spot while you can.
