NIAGARA RIVER DRIFT DIVING Two Dates Available

NiagaraDrift diving down one of America’s most famous rivers is both exciting and fun — even if you do stay well upriver from the falls. You can get a better idea of what it is like to fly over the bottom far faster than you could ever kick by watching this short video by Ontario diver Carson Smith:

 

 

What makes this trip unique:

  • You don’t need to exert yourself; the water does most of the work.
  • Visibility of 30 to 40 feet is common.
  • Limited bottom time is not an issue, as you are never deeper than 30 feet and generally no deeper than 15 feet.
  • Summertime water temperatures can be 70° F.
  • You can find antique bottles and other historic artifacts.
  • Don’t be surprised if your dive buddies include walleye, sturgeon, pike and gar.

The trip takes place over a weekend. You can dive just Saturday, just Sunday or both days. With four different entry and exit points, you are not likely to see the same thing twice.

The host facility for this trip is the Riverside Park Motel and Campground. You can choose to camp out, stay at the motel or choose another hotel in the Niagara Falls area (accommodations are not included in the trip price).

The dive site is three hours by car from Cleveland. You need to allow time for border crossing into Canada and back into the United States. It’s best to plan on spending the night before the dives in Canada and, possibly, staying an additional night before starting back to Cleveland.

When Does It Take Place?

There are two different weekends available:

  • July 29-30, 2017
  • September 9-10, 2017

Again, you can come for just Saturday, just Sunday or both days.
