I am super excited to make other trips round the Lakes, Tobermory, Isle Royale, Two Rivers, Milwaukee, Whitefish etc etc. You are so right about cold water diving. I guess anyone if given the option will want to go for the 30ºC water but people shouldnt discount colderwater dives. There are cracker sights to be enjoyed and the water temp is a slight logistic to think about avoiding freezing your balls off! Want to give that Gunuilda a nudge too!! Cant wait!
Indeed... I always figure that the reason we don't get more visitors from afar, is that transitioning from tropical diving in a 3mm suit isn't easy. Or inexpensive. On the other hand, anyone who can dive in 200' of water that's barely above freezing can easily head south (and we do!)
