Come Dive With Us
Capt. Bill is a commercial diver with over 35 years of diving experience. Bill has been diving the waters of Lunenburg Bay since 1974 searching for shipwrecks or just having fun. He will keep you entertained with stories of local wrecks, and deep sea salvage expeditions.
Visit the HMCS Saguenay, the 366 ft. Canadian destroyer sunk in 1994 in Lunenburg Bay. The wreck sits on her starboard side in 95 ft. of water. Seals are now seen during most dives and often play with the divers during their safety stops. The wreck site is only 25 min. from the wharf in downtown Lunenburg aboard Islander VI.
Seal dive on East Point Reef. Here you might see huge lobsters or have the opportunity to scratch the stomach of an inquisitive seal.
For the Technical diver we have the British sub HMS L-26 in 175 feet of water. The L-26 was sunk in 1945 by the Canadian Navy only 1 hr and 15 min. from Lunenburg near St. Margaret’s Bay. She was found in 1998 during the search for Swiss Air 111 by the Canadian Navy.
Lunenberg Ocean Adventures also offers fishing, shark fishing and private tours aboard their Islander V1 boat. Hook and release is required by law (for shark fishing) unless it is a tournament, and these sharks are landed and must be donated to science.
