Scuba Diving

Scuba DivingLike many communities surrounding Lake Erie, Port Colborne is an excellent home port for scuba diving activities.

Warm water and great visibility combine with 19th century marine treasures to create a memorable diving experience. Come discover the hidden world of Lake Erie's numerous reefs and sunken ships.

Twenty ship wrecks can be found within a 20 mile radius, including wood schooners, tugs, barges and steel freighters. But even more adventures await visitors on land. In 1917, a quarry near Sherkston Beach ceased operations and began to fill with water. Today it forms a 315 million gallon springfed lake. A dive 35 feet below the lake's surface reveals train tracks, mining equipment and even a locomotive.
