The Niagara Divers' Association  We Have It All!!

The Niagara Divers' Association (NDA) was founded in 1988 and currently has about 50 members from around the Niagara Region (Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada). We have one of the most ambitious dive schedules in Ontario. Just about every weekend from Mid-May to the end of September, we're somewhere in the Southern Great Lakes. We cater to all levels of divers, and are one of the very few clubs that offers challenging diving to even the most advanced of divers. From Novice to Trimix, we have something for everyone. In the spring, we host our annual SHIPWRECKS Symposium.

The Niagara Divers’ Association annual one-day symposium, called Shipwrecks started in 1995 as a small local event hosted at the St Catharine’s Library. Over the last 27 years it has grown into a successful world-class event and has been attended by more than 12,000 Divers and Shipwreck Enthusiasts!

Each year we present a mix of new and returning speakers with primary multimedia presentations on Shipwrecks, Diving and Marine Archaeology. The show also has a number of short presentations designed to introduce new topics and speakers.

For the last 25 years, we have booked the same great location with padded theater-style seating, easy access, loads of free parking, and a great sound system. Plus added touches such as personal name tags, speaker displays and book signing.

Dive For a Cure


The 5th annual NDA Dive for a Cure event was held October 5, 2014 at the Welland Scuba Park. $10,700 was raised thanks to all the registered divers, bubblewatchers, volunteers and sponsors.

The first four years we raised $7500, $8500, $9000 and $10,000 respectively, which we donated to the Canadian Cancer Society through registrations, donations, food sales, etc.

This brings our five year total to $45,700 !!

We regret that due to increased insurance costs and other logistical problems our Dive For a Cure event is on hold at the present time.
