| The 432-page Combined
Atlantic Diver Guide details one of North America's best kept secrets....
the almost untouched shipwreck diving waters of Atlantic Canada.
This guide features 207 of the best dive sites around the Atlantic
Since the Vikings found North America over 1,000 years ago, the
waters of Atlantic Canada have claimed more than 30,000 vessels
of which only a small portion have been located.
Newfoundland, dive the four intact and upright
400-foot long armed iron-ore carriers torpedoed off Bell Island,
the 200-foot wall dive in Gros Morne National Park, or the culture
and shipwrecks of the French islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon
located 20 miles off the coast.
Nova Scotia, dive in the historic waters off Fortress
Louisbourg, Cape Breton Island, where many French Man-O-War were
lost during British siege of 1758.... or the numerous wrecks, both
new and old, near the entrance of Halifax Harbour and along the
southern shore, and the almost unlimited variety of marine life
along the province's steep, rocky shoreline.
Prince Edward Island, take a dip in some of the
warmest waters north of Virginia, the magnificent sandy beaches,
rocky reefs, wrecks including a German U-boat, plus an environment
rich in marine life.
Brunswick, experience the Bay of Fundy's 45-foot tides,
a slack-water marine-life dive in the world's second largest whirlpool
effect off Deer Island, plus the warm waters and beaches of the
Northern and Eastern shore.
this guide, divers can explore historic wrecks and interact with
the diverse range of colorful marine life ranging from fascinating
sea cucumbers to playful seals, and tasty scallops to enormous whales.
