The waters in Geogian Bay are very clear and blue, and cold. 7mm or drysuit
diving. Tobermory is on the tip of the Bruce Penninsula, and there are
numerous accommodations there. It's a speck of a town centered around the
Little Tub Harbour. Fathom Five National Marine Park includes numereous
real wrecks and some shore dives, and an interpretive center just south of
town. You need to get a dive tag here (good for one year, $20) or wristband
(good for one day or one weekend) to dive in the park. Many local dive
shops come up to Toby to do open water and AOW dives.

Diver's Den website shows you the wreck sites in the park, plus the Niagara
II, sunk on purpose for divers outside the park 

DD has several boats: my favourite is the Deep Obsession, designed for
divers. The ladder is a central stalk (Xmas tree style) so you can just
walk up it with your fins on. Captain Dave is worth his weight in gold.

You can pick shallow wrecks or deeper ones depending on your skill level.
I'm still working my way through all of them, and I live in Ontario.
