1000 Diving Weekend - Shore Dives



This year, we are holding two dive trips in one! We will have shore dives for Beginning and Intermediate divers and boat dives for Advanced divers. If you are an Advanced diver, you are also welcome on our shore dives.

Friday Itinerary (Optional Dives)

  • 1:00 PM or later – check in at Dewar's Inn on the River 1649 County Rd 2, Prescott, ON K0E 1T0, Canada
