Canada is a vast country but there is only 1 place to head for a scuba diving holiday - Newfoundland! The Atlantic coastline boasts astonishing wreck diving set against a dramatic landscape, making it the ideal choice for a Canadian diving holiday. Newfoundland has long been strategically important, but none more so than during the Second World War and Battle for the Atlantic and the wrecks that date from this era must be seen to be believed. Scuba Travel have joined forces with Ocean Quest who run no less than 3 incredible diving tour options for your enjoyment, each combining phenomenal wreck dives with humpback or iceberg encounters along the way.
The wrecks around Newfoundland are numerous and span the region's history. The World War 2 wrecks of Bell Island are in pristine condition and begging for exploration. Here you will find all manner of artifacts still in their original resting place. Further wrecks are dotted around, all within an easy sail or rib ride. Over 22 species of whales feed and migrate past each season and sightings are frequent in the summer months. Splash in and snorkel with a humpback for an experience you will treasure forever. And then there is the rich marine life. Enjoy catching your own scallops for dinner or try a reef dive, packed with fish and crustaceans. The waters are filled with huge crabs, eels, anemone, lobsters and eel pout. Rays flatten themselves against the sand while icebergs pass overhead. There is most certainly nothing ordinary about this destination.
