  • Description:

    The Gordon Gauthier burned at a quarry dock in what was Port Arthur (now Thunder Bay). Gordon Gauthier lays in 15' of water at Mary Island right across from the Silver Harbour Conservation area therefore is easily accessed by an inflatable or small boat. This easy novice level dive is a perfect place to take the young divers and give them the fun of diving a 'wreck'.
