    I used to live in the Buffalo area (47 years) and quite a few people talked about how the diving was good off the two forts: Erie and Niagara.

    Diving off Fort Niagara might result in handcuffs...

    Really? Well, I am going back quite a few years. LOL. Is it now illegal? I know my neighbor from Kenmore used to dive out there.

    Welland Scuba Park
    Welland Swing Bridge
    Windmill Point Quarry
    Sherkston Quarry
    Niagara River Drifts
    Chippawa Creek Drifts
