Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a great white shark? No toilet paper needed, no having to stop what you’re doing and take time out of your day to relieve yourself, you just keep swimming forward and leave it all behind you. Keeping with our Shark Week Theme, this is the famous Lucy Dump Video shot on location last year during one of our Guadalupe Island, Mexico trips with Nautilus Explorer as part of a bi-annual Dan’s Dive Shop Great White Shark trip.

Scuba Diving the Tiller Wreck off St. Catharines, Lake Ontario 4/11
A very early season scuba dive on the Tiller wreck off of Port Dalhousie in St. Catharines, Ontario.
The Tiller wreck is a pre-1850’s era wooden schooner sitting in 95-110ffw. It’s a beautiful shipwreck and is called the tiller due to the fact that it uses a tiller arm instead of a ships wheel which was standard before 1850.
The shipwreck is an advanced dive and should not be dove without the proper equipment and training.
Join Courtney, Carlos, Jeff, Daniel and Mike as we rock around the Tiller Wreck. There’s a cameo appearance from an underwater TV personality too.
For the best in recreational and technical dive training come train with us.

Watering the manatees in Key Largo, Florida
A great video of us feeding water from a garden hose to our resident manatees after a great day of diving in the Florida Keys.
Note the amputee manatee in the video: boaters beware, careless, speeding boaters should view this video and see the damage you do to these innocent, docile creatures.
There was another day where we fed 4 manatees and a few babies, the mother and father manatee were in great shape, they came back later in the afternoon and the mother had a big wound on the lower part of her back from a propeller.
