What type of diving do you do? will be interesting to see what we can come up with for gear configuration / stowage on the boats. My crew is primarily technical diving, so it will be Toronto/Davis, Oakville/Crane, and St Lawrence/Jodrey, Vickery diving for us. What wrecks do you guys normally do?
Let me know any good locations for family boating near your area, as I'm looking for places to day trip with the family to boat/tube. We're in Pickering so heading north to Lake Simcoe is pretty quick run.
Neil, yes I am still trying to figure out what to do with tanks. will just lay them on a rubber mat on the floor for now with a tie down strap to keep them from rolling around.
We are just recreational divers, been diving now for 12 years, and at 60 years old I am not going to go any further into tech diving.
we enjoy doing Georgian Bay ,Tobermory, Kingston Brockville dives..Nothing over 100 -110 feet on Nitrox.
We go south in the winter to dive the Florida Keys, and have done Cozumel 4 times and Turks & Caicos Liveaboards.
Theres lots of nice places to bring family for boat trips on Simcoe ,we enjoy snorkeling and shallow swimming between the Sand Islands on south shore of Georgina Island. Theres a nice rocky remote beach on the north shore of Georgina Island too.
Also excellent swimming area for boaters is the sandbar area between Snake Islands and the mainland. Theres also a few cabin cruiser wrecks for scuba if you want to do that.
If you need GPS #s for the wrecks let me know.
