Waruwanago has been providing diving charters in the waters of Pelee Passage for over five years. To ensure your safety, sastification and enjoyment, all of the boats are captained by an Instructor or Divemaster who are very familiar with all the dive sites. All crew members love to dive, so if you need a guide or buddy they are more than happy to help. We are extending our services to include Dock/Beach side picnics, Treasure hunts, post-dive lunches on Pelee Island, and sunset cruises along the beautiful shoreline of Point Pelee National Park.
