About Corey Phillips
My wife comes up with the most amazing gifts. In 2002, she “gifted” me with getting open water certified. Diving on evening charters, I expanded my knowledge and skills with the GUE Fundamentals and eventually Tech 1 courses. Once I had in-water skills, I wanted to go places that hadn’t been explored in some time, usually long forgotten shipwrecks using a “shotline” as my only guide to the bottom. Ever since I have been hooked on diving. I have not had much opportunity to dive outside of Ontario but have visited Nova Scotia, P.E.I., Vancouver, Florida, and Tortola, completing dives in each location.
Highlights of my diving background:
Technical diver certified to 170’ using normoxic trimix, deco gases 50%, and 100% oxygen.
DPV (Underwater scooter)
No touch diving techniques used.
Videographer and Photographer.
Past Vice-President of Preserve Our Wrecks (Kingston).
Involved in getting a mooring block installed on the shipwreck, the Eureka.
Current Mooring Director of Save Ontario Shipwrecks – Picton Chapter.
Working away at getting all moorings up to SOS Corporate standard.
Member of the Florence project, which installed a block and line.
Current diver on the P-51 Mustang project
Officer Barry Newman recovery team
Shot video in Little Marble Lake and passed it on so the Cloyne and District Historical Society
Co-founder of Ontario Diving on Facebook (over 3700 members).
Co-founder of shotlinediving.com, which documents shipwrecks and is quickly becoming the go-to location to track wrecks in Ontario waters.
I enjoy passing images and videos from my passion for those who don’t dive to see.Corey Phillips
