I stole my dad's gear and went down a couple times at my lake, but I'm not PADI or NAUI certified.

One day when I have the time, I'll get qualified.

That Ice dive always sounded like fun! Nice vid.

Yup! Nice vid. Been wanting to get into some wreck diving this summer. All my 30 odd dives are in the Caribbean; nice and toasty warm. Been considering cold water diving but don't have any of the gear required. Especially dry suit.

thanks!


hockeyfan27: ice dive are "cool" hehe well, i mean.. it's cold, and when your back from under.. it's still cold outside and your head is wet so.. i will maybe do it next year but i don't think i will ice-dive often..

nachos23: caribbean is pretty cool.. lot of stuff to see, and warm water.. it's the best.. but since we leave in canada.. we must have drysuit :-D

btw, in brockville and kingston.. they have a lot of wrecks and it's all well documented on site.. and the water is still warm ( 74-76F )so you don't really need a dry suit. just a 5mm wetsuit.. this weekend the water was 37F. you really NEED a drysuit

hundreds of wreck sites in Ontario. Bought a book on wreck sites in Ontario, the problem is so many are badly picked-over and not much to see. I know of a couple of dive groups that dive Lake Ont, but visibility is 20ft @ best.... so haven't joined them yet..... would definitely want to more diving this summer (probably still need dry suit) LOL

Thanks! I used a panasonic ZR1 point and shoot camera with the panasonic DMW-MCZX1 underwater case.

Some of the shots were taken as deep as 40m (ca. 120 ft) for the lava rock formations, but most of the dives were around 20-25m (60-75ft).
