Dive site characteristics
The picture on the left shows the boat ramp and the wharf. The central picture shows the obelisc (picture taken from the South at low tide). The picture on the right shows the installations on the right side of the boat ramp.
The dive is done from the shore. It is important to respect the environment as well as the fauna. This is a dive in sea water, watch your buoyancy. Raise the weight on your weight belt accordingly.
It is highly recommended to use a a dry suit. The water temperature varies around 4°C (40°F). According to your dive plan, you may dive with a 7.5mm neoprene wet suit but for short period of time. Hypothermia is your worst ennemy!
There are also water currents due to water tidal but due to the fact that the site is near the mouth of the Outardes Rive. It is highly recommended to dive while being vigilant. At low tide, you can observe a low water surface surrent in front of the wharf from left to right toward the ramp.
Due to the presence of a boat ramp, it is highly recommended to have a dive flag.
Bring a certain amount of soft water in order to rince at least your regulator. There is no facility.
Note: directions are accurate as possible. It is recommended to go with someone who knows the site.
