Important to know about Canada

Canada’s name comes from the aboriginal Iroquoian word kanata, meaning "village" or "settlement". It may take you a lifetime to visit all of this country's beautiful landscapes with unique sites and its cities full of cultural diversity.

The most visited places in Canada are the city of Vancouver and surrounding mountains and islands, Banff National Park in Alberta, Niagara Falls in Ontario, old Montreal, the biggest city - Toronto, the Old Fort in Old Quebec City, the Capital City of Ottawa and The Bay of Fundy between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Capital: Ottawa Language: English and French. Currency: Canadian Dollar. Population: Approx. 36 million Climate: The climate varies wildly based on geography. Summer temperatures can rise to 35°C and higher, while average lows of -25°C are not uncommon in winter.

Where to dive in Canada

Canada has the longest coastline in the world and has an extremely large number of lakes and rivers, but most of the Canadian dive sites are located in the southern part of the country, mostly due to the warmer weather and concentration of the population. Best places to dive in Canada are listed below, but there are many areas likely not yet discovered:

The Fathom Five marine park

Located in Tobermory, it has over 20 shipwrecks with very good and clear underwater visibility, with dive sites for all levels.

St. Lawrence River

When diving here, the divers are likely to encounter very nice wrecks which can be explored near the cities of Brockville and Kingston, Ontario.

Barkley Sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island

The area was considered by Jacques Cousteau the second best place on the planet to dive (after the Red Sea), probably due to the unique richness in both plants and animals. From salmons, rock-fish, herring, squid, giant octopus, sea otters, seals, sea lions, orcas, grey- and humpback whales, Puget Sound King crab, sea pens, and six gill sharks Canadian divers had nothing to envy of the rest of the world.

Bell Island in Newfoundland

Where divers can take pleasure from four World War II cargo ships, sunk by German U-boats.

Hudson Bay

Where divers enjoy the company of diving with beluga whales.
