August 2007 A wonderful dive location. Excellent visibility, brilliant wrecks with stacks of life and almost entirely in tact. The locals are very welcoming and friendly.

October 2002 spent three weeks diving and exploring the island. From St. Anthony in the north to the avalon penninsula in the south. One of the most amazing places I've ever seen- both above and below the water. Every solid surface beneath the water is covered in life and the Whale 'graveyard' in south dildo is unforgettable.

September 2005 Had a great time in Newfoundland in September - Fantastic cold-water diving. Even though I didnt quite get onto the wrecks (hence the nickname) I still had some great dives and fun with my buddies at Ocean Quest...

June 2000 We were dining in Conception Bay, Newfoundland in early June and the water was 36 deg F, about 2 deg C. We had dry suits, but the diving was great. Vis was 80 ft, almost 25 m with a good number of fist and crustations present, but no large plagics. I would certainly recommend diving there assuming the diver has proper thermal protection.
