Diving around Kingston

Kingston is home to some of the best freshwater wreck diving in the World.  Our local TV Station made a little travelogue advertising this fact.  Click here to see what we mean.   We have several sources of training locally as well as a number of excellent dive charter operations.  These are listed in alphabetical order below.  Other training and charter operations in the Region that may interest divers are shown towards the bottom of the page.  Please note that most dive business in Kingston is seasonal (April to November).  Do contact the operation you're interested in to check their hours and availability before making any big travel plans.


CFB Kingston Dolphin Scuba Club - Although primarily established to serve members of the Canadian Forces and their family members, this Club accepts a limited number of civilian members for training.  A full range of recreational training is available.  They publish a leaflet that outlines their costs and arrangements.

Gas / Air Fills

Explorer Diving Based on Hwy 15, North of Kingston, Explorer offers dive training and occasional charters.  They also provide air fills and can service mixed gases.

Kingston Dive Charters. This operation, close to the Lake in Collins Bay, provides charter services with boats that will take up to 12 divers.  KDC offers the greatest experience of dive conditions in and around Kingston as well as information on the various wrecks.  Their fill station can service technical and recreational divers’ needs.

Pat’s Dive Charters - The fastest boat on the Lake and over 50 years of experience diving the wrecks of Kingston make Pat’s Charters a favourite of many divers.  Based to the East of the City, at Treasure Island Marina, they are also closer and more convenient for some US / Quebec-based groups.

Other Dive Services in the Region

ABUCS Scuba, Waupoos - ABUCS Brockville operates a charter-only outpost from Waupoos Marina during the dive season.


Canadian Sport Subs - Operates out of a very convenient location in Belleville, providing training, air fills, equipment sales and more from a very professional team.

Dive Tech - Situated on County Road 2, West of Brockville, very handy for divers visiting sites in the St Lawrence River.  Unquestionably the best-stocked dive store in the region.
