Once-a-Month Club

A "once-a-month" dive means that you have to dive for at least 10 minutes at a minimum 10-foot depth, once-a-month. And this does not include a dive at the pool (that's cheating!). This "mini club" has those few hardcore members who have managed to do it for a few consectutive years, but many members try it for more than a couple of months.

It's hard to find decent open water locations around Toronto especially during the winter months of November to March, but we've never failed. The record so far is 200 months!

Often times the visibility is very poor and the places are almost too shallow to dive, and it can be horribly cold outside! Non-divers and divers alike, can not comprehend the fact that we dive, of all seasons, during the winter, but it can be fun!
