George and Susan are great hosts and run the only dive operation on Point
Traverse, a small point of land that sticks way out into Lake Ontario. They
also have a dive shop and air fill station. Their boat (46' tug, 12 divers
max.)is very stable in rough weather. The diving is wrecks from the
schooner and steam era all beautifly preserved by the mostly cold water. Do
expect a thermocline at various depths depending on the time of year but it
will be there. Most dives are in the 60'-110' range.  www.Ducksdive.com
