We are lifelong seasonal residents of the village of Tobermory. And there is nothing better than dropping our kayaks in the water and heading out to explore. Never disappointed and always humbled by the power and beauty found here.

The air temperature, as of August 10th, was 82F. Go to the Five Fathoms Marine Park website at Parks Canada for current details (surface temperatures necessitate a wet suit [at depth I dive in a 7 mm wetsuit]).
