Shipwrecks/2001 was held Saturday, March 24, 2001 in the same Welland location.

The seventh annual symposium on Shipwrecks, organized by the Niagara Divers’ Association, was held on Saturday, March 24, 2001 in Welland, Ontario. The one-day event is for all interested in listening to multi-media presentations on shipwrecks, ranging from recreational through to technical requirements, as well as expanding the history of a number of Great Lakes shipwrecks. Approximately 450 divers and marine history buffs were in attendance.

This year we were very excited to have 7 primary multimedia presentations.

New for 2001, we introduced several new local presenters with a number of shorts (5minute) between the primary presentations.
