Gulliver's Lake

#1 - Gulliver's Lake

Ontario, Canada

There is a fountain in the middle of the lake ;) There are other items of interest submerged in the lake but I did not have time to investigate since I was with a group getting trained. Gulliver's Lake RV Resort & Campground approximately 30 minutes NW of downtown Hamilton ON Canada. This is a good location for seasoned and novice divers alike. Many diving schools come here for training and diving. As host of the 2002 Provincial Triathalon, Gulliver's Lake is also a popular training spot for local triathletes. Dive access is walk-in from the shore. Drop off is within a few feet of the shore. There are various submerged platforms @ 15+ feet for practicing skills (e.g., mask clearing and neutral buoyancy). The fine silt/mud bottom can make for poor visibility and sometimes algae also reduces visibility. I saw some small mouth bass from the shore but no fish while diving (Sep 2018).
