The first time someone imagines themselves as a scuba diver, cold water never really crosses their mind. They picture coral reefs and tropical oceans filled with color. To think that some scuba divers layer on the gear, to brave the dark and bone-chilling waters is unimaginable.
From the fishing villages of Newfoundland to the depths of Ontario’s Great Lakes, there is something truly magical about seeing our country through the eyes of a scuba diver. Nobody pictures Canada as a diving location, yet with the longest coastline in the world and more freshwater lakes than any other country, we are more connected to water than most people seem to think.
Canadian Splash is a carefully crafted 13-part project where Dive Buddies will dive and photograph every province and territory of Canada. Our underwater adventures will showcase the beauty, wonder, and fragility hidden below the surface of Canada’s waterline.
Join us as we dive into our home country. Discover our Canadian underwater world on the map or by location.
