    My husband has been diving with G + S since 1992, we have been doing private charters the last few years for fishing or sightseeing. Last night we had the best charter yet, our captain Gerry was aweso...  more »

    We took a 2 hour fishing trip and had a great time! We caught 3 lake trout, would've been 4 but the big one got away. The crew were friendly and very helpful. Great family event.  more »

    Snorkelling is OK (hence the two points) but the scuba-diving trips offered by them are a complete disaster. I have been diving for fifteen years and have never seen such a reckless dive shop. On the ...  more »

    Went to G+S Watersports to rent a couple of gear (tanks and weights), all other scuba equipment i brought myself. Anyways, I took the last charter boat out for the shallow dives on a Sunday. Didn't need to book in advance, which is a bonus to me, otherwise I didn't think I'd go if I have to book days in advance. Captain of the boat was welcoming and friendly. Although on a weekend the place is quite busy (but then again, that's the case with all the other businesses in the area on a summer weekend season). I suggest for less hassle to bring our own wetsuit if at all possible. Overall, experience was good, I didn't run into any issues myself.

    Booked for a three hour fishing tour. Large boat and fishing equipment provided. Caught a small salmon. Very nice day out. Crew was friendly and let my talkative 11 year old ask lots of questions. Took him on to the bridge to look at radar and sonar to see the fish schools we were trying to catch. They gave it a good effort to try to get fish. There was only three of us on the boat. Maybe pricy, but given the size of the boat and only us on it it was fun.

    August 1 2017 I just completed my Advanced Open Water Diver Certification last weekend in Tobermory with Aquarius Scuba Diving Center (Toronto), but we were required to fill our tanks and obtain weekend dive passes at G+S Watersports Ltd. Interacting with their staff could not have been a better experience! On our dives, one of their employees (Dave) accompanied us. Although he wasn't supposed to be working, he had no problem helping out and joining in wherever he felt he was needed - from lending me goggle defogger to keeping my friend calm on her dives by sticking by her side. He was very patient, funny, and kind. He even went the extra mile taking GoPro pictures of my friend and I on our shipwreck dives! The captain of our boat (Mamie), I think his name was Gerry, was also very friendly and pleasant. By the time I did my last dive I felt extremely confident in my abilities, and got to see some incredible shipwrecks! Thank you.

    Pretty horrible experience. We rented equipment and a boat, didn't know they did not include a divemaster. Luckily our friend is a certified dive master so he was able to lead our dives. We did 2 dives, and there were 2 other individuals on the boat with us who had only dove twice before. They had no clue what they were doing, and were supposed to manage and navigate two dives by themselves. They were not informed there would not be a divemaster present. Completely reckless behaviour by the dive shop to let those two people dive alone. Our divemaster friend was forced to do a job he was not being paid to do and had to take care of the two new divers on our boat. Would never recommend.

    Booked a snorkelling tour with them. Waited 2 hours for the boat to pick us up. No one came to let us know the boat is running late and even when the boat arrived, no one apologized for the delay. When we went to get a refund, the employee was rude and didn't care. DO NOT BOOK WITH THEM!

Where to stay in Tobermory

You can stay in the town center for convenience, but you might find the constant coming and going of cruise ships irritating. For something more relaxing, look for a guesthouse or bed and breakfast at the northern tip of the peninsula, next to Fathom Five National Marine Park. Reserving in advance is essential between May and September, as tourists flock to Tobermory to make the most of the warmer weather.
