Kingston, Ontario – The city of Kingston claims the “best fresh-water shipwreck diving in the world”. About 400 shipwrecks are believed to be in the region. Dive operators visit 15 popular sites as part of the Preserve Our Wrecks (POW) program, which safeguards heritage wrecks. The shipwrecks range from schooners to steam ships, and date back to the 19th Century. Because of zebra mussels, the water is remarkably clear, with visibility ranging from 12 to 30 metres (40 to 100 feet).
Kingston is located halfway between Toronto and Montreal, on Lake Ontario, at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River.
