Dive Cape Breton and Atlantic Canada

BACK

When one visits Cape Breton for the first time, one is overwhelmed with its beauty and the magnificence of rolling hills which slowly sweep toward the most pristine ocean one will ever see. However the beauty of Cape Breton as an Open Water Diver will not limit you to its landward aesthetic beauty. Instead, you can plunge into the diversity of beauty and history beneath the sea.

Cape Breton, since the eighteen Century to present day, is situated along several of the most used shipping lanes in the world. The North Atlantic is world renowned for its non forgiving tyrant storms and the ocean rage which accompanies it. Many sailors have been lost to the tyrant of rage and to their souls I wish peace. As I dive and see the destruction to those ships which the North Atlantic have claimed, I am reminded of the life which graced its decks and the presence of its bow cutting through the ocean which eventually claimed it.

The ocean around Cape Breton and the Maritimes is peppered with the claims of the North Atlantic since the seventeen hundreds.
