Would never dive with this operator again.  Nice enough, but no planning. 
Had a boat that didn't fit the entire group (a six pack when the group he
booked was 13!)  No permit to work in Canada so part of the group missed
one day of diving after the Canadian authorities had a chat with the
operator.

While the diving in this area is great - the operators need improvement. 
The BEST operator we used to supplement this misadventure was Sea and Sky
Scuba in Brockville.  Professional, go the extra mile, have their act
together types - definately recommend.

This is all wreck diving in current but the temps and viz make it easy for
all levels of diving.  Drift diving to find artifacts a blast - have reel
and float with you!
