    HI,

    I recently moved to Ottawa and I am currently planning 2020 dive season. Is their any good dive location in the area for weekday dives. I have been traveling to Brockville and Kingston area on the weekends but at is a little far for quick evening dives.

    thanks for the info in advance.

    During the summer we will normally do Wet Wednesdays after work in the St. Laurence River. Normally this will be sites between Brockville and Morrisburg.

    Welcome to Ottawa! Dive sites are all in the St-Lawrence, so a bit of a drive but many are definitely closer than Brockville.
    Prescott is popular and has the wreck of the Rothesay , and the Conestoga at Cardinal. Here's a list of some of the popular sites: Popular Dive Sites — O2ToGo Dive Centre

    The local dive shops do organize groups often and I've gone out with Divers Wearhouse, they are a great bunch :wink: and offer the Wet Wednesdays.

    Kanata Diving Supply is a little further out in the west end but also has a good reputation.

    There's also the quarry in Morrison. Good place to dive deep

    Check out this group, they have some members from Ottawa area. Great bunch of folks! And they have their annual pig roast and East Cliffe Hall dive event that is so much fun! https://www.seawayvalleydivers.com/
