Comments For this trip accommodations and diving were booked separately.
The Inn is 20 minutes from town. It has a restaurant onsite that offers a moderate menu with an air fill station onsite. Accommodations were OK but I think going with one of the hotels in Gananoque or Brockville and driving to the dock to get the boat daily is the way to go. Visiting a local dive store (DiveTech in Malorytown)is worth the trip. They have supplies to meet all your needs from recreational to technical and rebreathers.
The boat was set up well for diving and the staff on board knowledgeable about the area and quite helpful.

UW Photo Comments While this area does not have the tropical marine life, it has a variety and abundance of freshwater species. What makes this trip is the wrecks. There are several wrecks from modern steel freighter to wooden three-masted schooners from the 1800's
