Nice lake about 45 minutes west of Toronto on the 401 West, take highway 6 south to Safari Road, make a right, drive 2 minutes and you are there.

6 Dollars per person. Scuba Divers must register with the front desk which takes 2 minutes.

Very nice and clean water. The water was free of garbage, did not see one bit of anything but nice marine life and a few fish. You can BBQ if you bring your stuff, there is also a dive shop.

Fish were friendly and very curious.

There is a dive platform west, south west, of the lake. It is about 40-50 feet from the shore. It is shore diving all around, very easy to get in the water and dive. Very nice drop off on the west side to get right in. Also a cool geyser near the north east of the lake but did not get to close to it as we were practicing skills.

Max depth about 30 feet.

Visibility about 10-20 feet, not very silty but easy to kick it up as always.

Dive platform had a clock on it, Big Ben. Somehow my camera glitched out and didn't save those clips. Will get it next time now that I reset and upgraded the cameras firmware.

Cardinalfishes & trumpetfish. Part 6 of my documentary, "Mucky Secrets", about the fascinating marine creatures of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia.

In this video I first take a look at the Banggai cardinalfish, Pterapogon kauderni. This is an invasive species which was introduced to the Lembeh Strait in the year 2000, and now competes with anemonefish for territory. Although it appears to be thriving in the Lembeh Strait and a few other locations, the Banggai cardinalfish is nonetheless still an endangered species because of its popularity in the ornamental fish trade.

We then encounter other species of cardinalfish (Apogonidae) in the area, Moluccan cardinalfish, Ostorhinchus moluccensis, the orbiculate cardinalfish, Sphaeramia orbicularis, and the frostfin cardinalfish, Ostorhinchus hoevenii, sheltering in the spines of sea urchins.

Finally we witness a trumpetfish, Aulostomus chinensis, preying on a small group of frostfin cardinalfish. The trumpetfish's slim profile and stealth allow it to creep up very slowly on the unsuspecting cardinalfish, before making its attack. The trumpetfish sucks in the cardinalfish in a method known as "pipette feeding".

There are English captions showing either the full narration or the common and scientific names of the marine life, along with the dive site names.

"Mucky Secrets" is being serialised weekly on YouTube. Please subscribe to my channel to receive notifications of new episodes as I release them. The series will feature a huge diversity of weird and wonderful marine animals including frogfish, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, crabs, shrimps, moray eels, seahorses, octopus, cuttlefish etc..
