09/28/2007 Jason NYC (Avg: 2.12 Review) - Well, doing a review for the entire St. Lawrence river could be lengthy since it's diving possibilities cover literally hundreds of miles but here are a few comments and highlights. Start in Clayton, NY and do a shore dive on the Wreck of the Islander. See the review here on as with any wreck I mention. Next, make your way up to the Prescott, ON area in Canada (about 1 hr drive north and east) and shore dive the Conestoga (locals call it the Connie) and also dive the wreck of the Rothesay just a few miles away. All three dives I mentioned are easy/shallow shore dives but still hold much interest for advanced divers as well. Current can be an issue at the Connie, and, if you do dives from a boat, the current can really rip (Cozumel Like) in places and at certain times. Shore diving the St. Lawrence river is a great weekend trip for NE US divers. Stop in one of the local dive shops in ON, Canada and you can get air fills and even more info about other shore dives close by (none as exciting but still ok) and also info on doing one of the frequent boat dives. There are more shore dives than you can do in a long weekend unless you really go all out. Enjoy!!!

09/24/2004 Anonymous (Avg: 3.53 Review) - The Bruce ( Ottawa ) in the Ottawa river. Nice wreck dive located directly bellow the Ottawa rowing club site docks. Easy to find wreck. Water is very dark so the visibility is very low. Fun dive for intermediate and advance divers. Not recommended for beginners.

09/24/2004 Anonymous (Avg: 3.32 Review) - Rothesay (Prescot) and Conestoga (Cardinal) wrecks. Excellent wreck dives.

09/04/2003 Winston B. (Avg: 2.70 Review) - I agree with the review but the trip I was on had all level of divers and we all learned a lot. The shipwrecks were incredible to dive. The currents made it more intermediate, while the night dives proved exciting to explore the wrecks in a different light.
