Stayed in the Kingston/1000 Islands area.  Kingston is a beautiful small
town with lots of good restaurants and pubs.  Brockville, further
downstream also has good places to eat.  The dives are cold in Lake
Ontario.  Bring your drysuit.  Alot of the folks from Quebec were in
wetsuits in the river, not so much in the deep wrecks in the lake.  The
wrecks are the reason to go and not just for wreck divers.  Preserved in
the cold, fresh, toredo-free water are wrecks from the Civil War.  With the
introduction of zebra mussels, photographers can get great shots of ships. 
Bring your passport.  It will avoid hassles at the border and you'll need
it even if you stay in Canada.  To dive the Keystorm, a large freighter on
it's side in the St. Lawrence, requires a stop at US customs because it is
just over the border in the middle of the river.
