Diving in Kingston is about as easy as it gets. There are a small number of decent shore dives but the vast majority of diving here is done by boat. Due to a long shipping history there are plenty of naturally occurring wrecks in the area, but the numbers of diveable wrecks really start to pile up when you look at the three “shipwreck graveyards” nearby. These sites were used as the final resting spots for ships that had become too old and perforated to continue working the Great Lakes. Most are schooners but there are paddle-wheelers and freighters others as well. One of the best known sites in the Kingston area is the Wolfe Islander, a ferry that was intentionally sunk as a dive site, and has been prepared accordingly. Diving here requires a full wetsuit/drysuit, hood and gloves virtually throughout the diving season which extends from May to Sept/Oct. Kingston diving is generally best early and late in the season when the algae is at its lowest and visibility is at its max (sometimes reaching 100’, but 20-50’ is average). Wrecks range in depth from 20’ to nearly 300’, so there’s something for every skill level from guppy to techie.
