  • Waome Wreck and Eleanor Island!

Waome Wreck and Eleanor Island!

Ojibwa Indian word meaning Water Lily. Originally named the Mink, the Waome now lies underneath the serine waters of Lake Muskoka. On the morning of October 6, 1934, en route from Port Carling to Beaumaris, a freak storm caught her broadside and left her on the bottom of the lake just west of Keewaydin Island. In about 70 feet of water, this 78’ steel hulled wooden steamer is sitting upright and is still almost fully intact.

Sitting upright and intact in dark, tea-colored water, the vessel’s original white paint still clings to her wood in places. The subtle glow of the bit of light that makes it to this depth reflects eerily off the Waome’s 78' hull. Penetration of this wreck is possible; from the upper deck past the wheelhouse, the diver can descend down the stairway to the lower deck or head towards the fantail. The cargo doors on the second deck are open on both sides allowing divers to swim through from one side to the other. There are many other areas to be explored on this vessel. We recommend minimum Advanced Certification for this dive. Maximum depth of this dive is 70 ft.

Come and board our custom built 32’ charter boat. Specially designed to accommodate scuba divers, the pontoon boat holds 10 people comfortably. The entire charter lasts from 2 to 3 hours. Boarding takes place 15 minutes before departure at the dock in Milford Bay. Experienced divers may penetrate this wreck. Lights and a wet or dry suit are a necessity. Visibility is from 10 – 15 feet.

Next to the dock is a beautiful parkette, with washrooms, picnic tables, and a sandy beach. Bringing a picnic lunch makes for a full day of fun and excitement for divers and non-divers alike.

Dates and times are booked on a first come basis, therefore those who book the earliest will get the best choice.
