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 30 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.
Planning for our
29th annual one-day symposium on shipwrecks, Shipwrecks/2024 is
nearing completion with several speakers already confirmed. Online registration is now open.
Dive For a Cure
We regret that due to increased insurance costs and other logistical problems our Dive For a Cure event is on ia no longer being run.
The 5th annual NDA Dive for a Cure event was held
October 5, 2014 at the Welland Scuba Park. $10,700 was raised

The first four years raised $7500, $8500, $9000 and $10,000 respectively,

donations, food sales, etc.
This brings our five year total to $45,700 !!
