Whale Bones is a shore accessible salt water dive site, located in NL, Canada. The maximum depth is 61-70ft/19-21m. The average visibility is 36-40ft/11-12m.

Whale Bones, South DildoAround 1 hr from St. John’s in the south of Trinity Bay, South Dildo is a former whaling station and the skeletons of many of these large animals lie scattered on the seabed close to the shore. Accessed from the wharf or the adjacent beach, the site depth reaches approximately 20m and is easily navigated. Alternatively, a boat can be used to reach some of the areas farther away. Whale skulls, ribs, jawbones and vertebrae, some of them huge, can be found all over the site and although deteriorating and often covered in weed, they are easily recognizable.
