Comments Tobermory is a nice dive option if you are in Canada during the summer. Tobermory is located on the Bruce Peninsula, in Ontario.
It is a dive site with fresh and cold water. We were not able to find dive shops with dry suite rental options, so we used our 7mm wet suits. Because of that we limited our dives to low depth options. If you have a dry suit, you will have many more options to explore.
Tobermory offers over 20 historical shipwrecks. Some of the pictures we took underwater:
