Join East Coast Divers for our 2019 St Lawrence Wreck Trek!
October 10-13th 2019
The St Lawrence river is full of well-preserved historical wrecks to explore. With average seasonal water temperatures in the low 60’s, freshwater to preserve the wrecks, and visibility ranging from 30-80 feet, this is the perfect trip to end local diving season. With breakfast included, boat pick up right at the resort, and shore diving available on site, we couldn't have made the diving any easier!
Because of the depth of many of the wrecks, participants are required to have a deep specialty certification or proof of 5+ dives deeper than 60 feet.
About The Diving:
In the St Lawrence River you’ll find some of the Northeast’s finest freshwater diving. For over three centuries Lakes Erie and Ontario and the Niagara and St. Lawrence Rivers have been major shipping thoroughfares, resulting in the St Lawrence being the final resting place of many wrecks. These freshwater sites can offer a range of large fish life, such as sturgeon and the majestic paddlefish. With comfortable temperatures of 60-70oF and an average visibility of 30-80ft, you can remain in your comfort zone while enjoying the sunken history of the ships that lost their way among these islands.
Trip cost: $775/person
*3 nights lodging at the Bonnie Castle Resort and Marina (double occupancy)

Located on the New York shores of Alexandria Bay, this idyllic resort known for hosting events, overlooks the bay and the actual Bonnie Castle on the neighboring island. The resort is also conveniently positioned next to possible shore dives, allowing us to just walk off the dock, or hop on the wreck charter that picks us up straight from the resort’s marina. With breakfast included in the price you will have easy starts to your morning as you roll down to breakfast and then roll down on to the dock to start the day of diving.
Blue Foot Diving offers diving charters from its two boats based in Alexandria Bay in the heart of the beautiful Thousand Islands. All wrecks are within a 30-minute boat ride. Blue Foot is friendly to both recreational and technical diving.
