Toronto Harbour Evening Charter 2020-1
!!! These dives are rated ADVANCED due to both DEPTH and TEMPERATURE and is restricted to EXPERIENCED divers. It is possible to reach depths of 130 feet!
This will be a two tank dive charter out of the Humber Bay Park West to visit the wrecks Sligo and Lymon Davis. Due to the depth and temperature of these sites, it is restricted to Advanced Divers or those with appropriate experience.
The Sligo today lies in 75 feet of cold water approximately 1.5 miles East of Humber Bay park near Toronto, Ontario. The hull is nearly intact and can be entered at both bow and stern. When discovered in 1984, the wreck was rich with artifacts, many of which are now regrettably gone. There still remain many interesting sights including the ship's stove and wheel, which lie off the stern and the hull's construction which was unique for the period.
The Lymon Davis
This wreck lies in about 135 feet of water, in Humber Bay, just outside Toronto Harbour. This was one of the last working schooners on the Great Lakes, built in Michigan in 1873. It was sacrificed for the entertainment of the masses when it was set afire and left to sink just off Sunnyside Park in Toronto, in 1934.
The dive conditions at this wreck site can be variable. At 135 feet in depth, the wreck lies at the limit of recreational diving and beyond. Water temperatures at these depths can dip down to the 35F range, even in the height of summer. Historically quoted as a "black wreck in black water", there may not be much ambient light and a dive to this depth is much like a night dive. Proper deep cold water dive planning is a must to attempt this wreck.
