An August 2001 trip
to Ontario by kiminhalifax
Quote: Ontario - the centre of Canada and its residents think the centre of the universe. Our goal was to not see land - head underwater to Canada's only underwater National Park!!

Attraction | "Fathom Five National Marine Park of Canada"
Cliffs, caves, and overhangs and over 20 "historical" shipwrecks offer a variety of underwater experiences.
You must purchase a tag (to be displayed on your BC) at the Diver Registration Centre - I think it was $10 for the tag. If you choose to dive the Niagara II you are to purchase yet another tag. Ooops!! We didn't know and dove the Niagara anyway - no one checked for tags.
Most wrecks are accessible only by boat, due to the location of the wreck (out in the penninsula or surrounded by private property). However, there is a great selection of shore dives that you can enjoy. I found the shore dives much better than the boat dives.
So, would I go back? Probably not. There are a lot of other locations I would want to try, including Kingston Ontario. But, if you're in the area, it's worth a try - even if it's only for the Little Tug Harbour wrecks.
