Diving In Brockville - Tourist Tip #3

Brockville is known for its historic charm and having fun things to do, but do you know this history is continued down under the water?

Do you also know that Brockville is home to some of the world’s best freshwater diving? With no thermocline and astonishing water clarity, you can explore century-old shipwrecks and artifacts that are scattered along the river bottom. You can check out the list here. Shipwrecks vary in skill from novice to advance and from 20-150 feet. The oldest one dates back to 1812!

Another unique addition to Brockville's waterfront is the underwater sculpture park.  In fact, Brockville is one of the first communities to host an underwater sculpture park! Established by S.O.S Thousand Islands chapter, the park is consistently being updated and new statues are added each year which means there's always something new to see! There are already over 25 sculptures to explore!

Luckily if you have minimal or zero experience, the Dive Brockville Adventure Centre offers classes of all levels or discover scuba for newbies. Discover Scuba is a 3-4 hour adventure that lets you experience the thrill of diving without the hours of training. Gear is available to rent for any diver which makes packing a breeze!

Fun fact: the Dive Brockville Adventure Centre also has kayak and canoe rentals, bike rentals, water taxis, island picnics and more!
