Comments 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.
