    Great wrecks, and a lot of them. Once you get into the river there are no thermoclines, so water is 70+ throughout.

    Ontario Scuba Diving

    Here's a site with some pictures. Brockville is in the river, and the Kingston wrecks is where the river starts. Thermoclines in Kingston, but summer temps rarely below 60 at the bottom.

    That's not the river... It's the estuary... Almost at the Gulf...

    My favorite wreck in the st lawrence river is the kinghorn, near of the thousand islands. I am not a specialist but when I dove there the light was wonderfull and it's easy for new divers, You need to go there with a charter. Look on scubapédia. com good bubbles

    I can recommend Abucs Scuba in Brockville. I dove with them last year and will be going again next month. Their site is Abucs Scuba Dive Brockville.com St Lawrence River, Ontario Canada . It has some good information on the wrecks they visit.

    The St Lawrence river has been used for commercial shipping for a couple of centuries, long before the Seaway was built. There are hundreds of wrecks along the St Lawrence. The cold, fresh water preserves the wrecks very well. Lots of great diving and conditions can range from easy to challenging. The current can be mild or really ripping along.
