Prashanth, Marek, Tai, and Clint went on a wonderful October dive to the boat wreck in Welland Scuba Park.
One of the main reasons why our dive group (Free Spirit Ski and Scuba) likes to go down there is because of the boat wreck. In addition to the nice dock and easy parking at the Welland Scuba Park, as well as generally warmer water temperatures than Humber Bay, one of the main reasons why our dive group (Free Spirit Ski and Scuba) likes to go down there is because of the boat wreck. It’s a good, undamaged wreck around the size of a tugboat, with plenty of fish life in and around it for most of the diving season. The wreck is around 30 feet deep and not far from the beach. It’s quite easy to find because it’s located on one of the Welland Scuba Park’s lines.
A submarine, some platforms, and a few cars sunk into the canal are among the other attractions at the dive park, in addition to this boat wreck. When we dive there, our dive group navigates around a circuit that includes all of these things.
When our group divers realize how diver-friendly Welland Scuba Park is, they are pleasantly surprised, especially when compared to some of the annoyances they encountered in Humber Bay. Of course, we’ll continue to dive Humber Bay because of its convenience, but for those GTA divers who have never gone to Welland because it’s too far away, here’s our film we made to highlight just how wonderful this boat wreck is, which is, in my opinion, the main attraction at Welland Scuba Park.
Most Welland dives are 30-40 min with max depth 30-35 feet (9-10 meters). Visibility estimated 15-20 feet (4-6 meters). Footage filmed with a GoPro.
