Diving in Ontario: Gulliver’s Lake

One of our goals this summer is to do as much diving in Ontario as possible. Luckily the weather has been cooperating (maybe a little too much) and makes great diving temperatures (for me). I really dislike being cold and last year at Innerkip was way too cold for me.

We went to Gulliver’s Lake twice in June.

First Visit in June
Visibility was 10-20 feet
Temperature was 20 degrees Celsius

Second Visit in June
Visibility was less than the previous visit (5-10 feet)
Temperature was slightly warmer – 21-22 degrees Celsius

For both dives, we went about 20-25 feet. I started to get cold when it was deeper, especially because it got darker.

Unfortunately, on our first visit, our compasses did not work, so navigation was a challenge.

On our second visit, we had good compasses. We used the fountain as our target and tried to navigate to it from the south-east corner. Along the way, we saw some interesting things:
