Newfoundland Diving Holidays

Canada is a wet and wild wilderness that is vastly unexplored. It is the second largest country in the world but has a smaller population than the UK. It is a new destination for UK divers, yet there is so much on offer here that you will wonder why you waited. Newfoundland might not be your typical holiday choice but there is a wealth to see here and the diving is wickedly good. Conception Bay South lies only 25 minutes from the regional capital of St Johns and has in recent years become the focal point for for divers, all following a different scent.

Wreck divers meet to explore the excellently preserved wrecks. Large Second World War relics loom up as you descend, sending a shiver down the spine. Fish lovers congregate here too to catch sight of the minke and humpback whales that feed right outside the harbour mouth. The entire province of Newfoundland and Labrador is a haven for passing wildlife. It’s cliffs are rugged and weathered and its shores the meeting point for all manner of bird, fish and marine life.

The expansive open spaces will leave you with a feeling of absolute tranquility whilst the Ocean Quest Lodge has a comforting warm welcome to offer each visitor. In a land where icebergs float past each and every year, this stretch of coastline is simply spectacular and will appeal to anyone that wants to see something magical under the water and above.
