The 1,000 Islands are as beautiful underwater as they are above water.

During this trip, you’ll have the opportunity of diving some of the best and most unique wrecks in the area. These wreck sites include:
And during our surface intervals on Saturday and Sunday we’ll be BBQing Hot Dogs and Burgers for your dining pleasure.
Non-divers can take a City of the 1,000 Islands Cruise or visit the historic Boldt and Singer Castles. There is the ever popular Brockville Rib Fest all weekend and the Poker Run on Saturday. Plus there is a Dairy Queen minutes from our hotel. There are lots of lighthouses to visit, or hit the mall in Brockville for some great deals due to the value of the American dollar in Canada.
Plus, new in 2017 is Skywood Eco Adventure. Only 10 minutes from DiveTech, this new outdoor area includes a Zipline Tour, Arial Adventure Courses and a Treewalk Village.
Note: Double tanks, drysuits and DPV's are not required to dive these wrecks.
