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
Lake Erie Mooring Project

Add Name to Shipwrecks Mail
The Niagara Divers’ Association annual one-day symposium, called Shipwrecks started in 1995 as a small local event hosted at the St Catharines Library. Over the last 29 years it has grown into a successful world-class event and has been attended by more than 14,000 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 27 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.
As in the past, we have plans for
numerous multimedia presentations by both world renowned and local
speakers. Lunch, refreshments and door prizes will be included.
Speakers will have tables and meet with guests during breaks and lunch.
A display area is available for non-profit diving related groups and Gold Level sponsors.

stages for our 28th annual one-day symposium on shipwrecks,
Shipwrecks/2023. We are requesting presentations in
either of 2 categories:
Primary presentations may be up to 45 minutes in
length, but most are approximately 20 - 25 minutes, with additional
time allotted for question and answer. Live commentary is preferred to
Short, 5 minute maximum, presentations (primarily
to introduce new topics or presenters) are also being requested.
All presentations should be shipwreck-related and
we try for an even split between recreational and technical topics.

presentation and a brief biographical sketch to the Shipwrecks

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
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.
