Brockville has the warmest diving in Ontario...

with water temperatures reaching 20°C (70°F) or more in the summer. What's more, because the current prevents thermoclines, the water is warm from top to bottom. Compared to other Ontario dives that's practically tropical!

The strong current offers high-energy diving...

where you'll drift effortlessly down the river. The faster current at some sites provide an exhilarating dive, but there also slower currents that offer a more casual pace.

Lots of shipwrecks...

are found at the bottom of the upper St Lawrence River. These wrecks offer a glimse into Ontario's past that only scuba divers get to see!

There's more fish than anywhere else...

we dive in Ontario. You can see plenty of bass, perch, pickerel, and if you're really lucky, sturgeon.

Brockville and the Thousand Islands are full of history...

and the area was a busy smuggling route during prohibition. Divers often find old liquor bottles and other historic items that you can collect.
