Located on the coast of Lake Erie on the outskirts of Port Colborne is Sherkston Shores, a summer time resort featuring attractions including summer homes, camping, golfing, water park, mini-golf, paintball, a summer time community with stores, restaurants and of course a great dive site!

Sherkston quarry became a dive site in 1917 when the water pumps quit working one night after the workers went home. The next morning the workers showed up at work and knew they were out of a job.

Sherkston is a great place to dive when conditions are right. The best diving is often times around Late Fall, October 30-July 1st.

There is quite a bit to see including lots of fish, walls, train engines, rocks, a pump house, training platforms for students, a haunted tree, golf carts, boats and a great community atmosphere.

Maximum depth 40ft. Visibility ranges from 0-65 feet.

The diving conditions are the worst during the peak summer months from July-mid October due to high seaweed and black algae which chokes out all the visibility.

Once the Black algae arrives it’s a navigation and visibility challenged dive.

Admission is only $10.00/diver, a waiver and proof of certification are needed so bring your C-card and divers logbook. Camping in tents, rustic cabins, or trailers is also an option for divers who are coming to dive for the weekend.
