All About Scuba has a longstanding partnership with Blue Foot Diving. Blue Foot's owner/operator, Andrew Driver, is a superb Captain with a wealth of knowledge and experience. (see bio below)
Blue Foot Diving offers diving charters from its two boats based in Alexandria Bay in the heart of the beautiful Thousand Islands. Blue Foot 1 is a 32-foot Parker with a 9 foot 6 inch beam which can comfortably accommodate 6 divers. Blue Foot 2 is a 27-foot Olympia and has a 4 diver capacity. All wrecks are within a 30-minute boat ride with the famous wreck of the 640ft Roy A. Jodrey less than 5 minutes from the dock.
For groups of 7-10, Bob Sherwood, who also has a USCG 100-ton master license, will typically captain Blue Foot 2 so the group can all dive the wreck together. For groups larger than 10 divers, we can still accommodate, as Andrew works hand in hand with another charter operator for special occasions.
Rates for trips to US wrecks are $80 per person for a 2-tank recreational dive or a 1-tank technical dive.
Trips to Canadian wrecks can be arranged and are priced at $100 per person for the Kinghorn, $120 per person for the Daryaw, and $140 per person for the Wolfe Islander.
A little about Andrew Driver:
Owner of Blue Foot Diving, he was born 50 meters from the English Channel and has spent his life in or on the water ever since. He has worked extensively as both a dive boat captain and tour boat captain, sailed across the Atlantic twice in one year, and delivered boats to many locations throughout the world. Andrew has a USCG 100-ton master license as well as being a UK licensed master of motor and sailing vessels up to 200 gross tons and has spent time on many different vessels including super yachts, research vessels, dive boats, a year on a war ship and most memorably 2 weeks on a tall ship. He has visited over 50 different countries.
A scuba diver since he was 12, Andrew has trained instructors and has dived throughout the world from the high Arctic, to the Amazon rain forest to the wrecks of Asia. As a professional diver he has done work for the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, National Geographic, and other TV production companies. Andrew’s most recent diving trips have been with the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) in Papua New Guinea and Palau recovering the remains of servicemen from World War II.
Andrew also owns a company that rents, sells, and operates recompression chambers (portable chambers in particular) for divers. He uses his knowledge as an International Board of Undersea Medicine chamber instructor and operator to educate divers on hyperbarics as well as making dives from his dive boat safer.
As an officer in the Royal Marines Commandos for 8 years, Andrew served on various appointments at sea and on land including tours for which he received extensive training in parachuting, Arctic survival, and combat swimming with oxygen rebreathers. He was a member of the British National Parachute team and commanded the world-record-holding Royal Marines Free Fall Team.
