Home to some of the most pristine, beautiful and intact shipwrecks in the World, Kingston, Ontario offers some great wrecks both wooden and metal. With over 20 popular wrecks, and great charter operators, this area has become one of our favourite places to dive.

Visibility ranges from 30-100 feet with temperatures typical of Lake Ontario diving, with bottom temps being 39-45 degrees Fahrenheit.

Some of the Wrecks Include:

The George A. Marsh one of the prettiest schooners around, the Marsh is reminiscent of the famed Tobermory shipwreck Arabia, but warmer, shallower and more intact. The George A. Marsh rests in 85′ of clear Lake Ontario water and sank enroute to the US side of the lake to deliver coal to a hospital that was in need of it in 1917.

The George T. Davie is a steel barge that sank in 1945 off Simcoe Island, near Kingston, carrying coal enroute from Oswego, NY to Kingston. She capsized and sank on her starboard side down in 95′.

The Wolfe Islander was a working ferry used to transport people between Kingston, Wolfe Island and Garden Island from 1945-1970. In the 1980’s divers showed interest in sinking the wreck and cleaned and prepped it for sinking. On September 21st, 1985, the Wolf set out on her final voyage under tow. The Wolfe was retired in a max depth of 80′ with divers hitting the stern section in 45′ and the bow of the ship in 60′. It’s a great dive for intermediate to advanced divers.

The Munsun is a dredge that started to take on water in 1890 on its way back to Collins Bay. Many of the artifacts still remain on this ship, please leave them where they lay. Max depth is 112′.

The Comet is one of the most popular shipwrecks in Kingston.  The steam driven 175′ paddle wheeler that remains largely intact in about 75′.

Olive Branch She sank on the night of September 30, 1880 near False Duck Island, on one of the Pennicons in 100′ of water, taking the lives of the captain and crew. She is sitting upright at the base of a shoal. This wreck is intact, much of her equipment remains on board – deadeyes, steering wheel, anchors, blocks. Maximum depth 95′.

City of Sheboygan 3 masted schooner 135′ x 27′ x 10′. Built in 1871. She sank on September 25, 1915 by foundering in a violent storm with a cargo of coal; the crew of 5 perished. She sits upright in 95′ of water on a hard bottom near Amherst Island. Masts, rigging, blocks, deadeyes, etc. adorn this beautiful, well preserved wreck. Maximum depth 105′.

Katie Eccles sank 1922, off Timber Island.  This beautiful 95′ long x 24′ wide 2 masted wooden schooner has one of the most photographed bows in Lake Ontario, with the anchor chains streaming down cascading off the wreck to the lake bottom. The ships bow rigging can be found on the bow, the mast rigging midship. She sank in 1922 in a maximum depth of 100′

Kingston Technical Trimix Wrecks: There are 3 steel steamers laying in 240-260′ off the cement plant between Kingston and Picton.  Visibility is usually 100′ or better, but dark as there is no ambient light.
