Shipwrecks/2006 was held Saturday, March 25, 2006.  We had approximately 450 people in attendance.  For 2006, we had 80 door prizes (including regulators & dive charters) which are now listed on the web site along with the contributors and winners’ names.

The Fort Erie Underwater Recovery Unit once again held a 50/50 draw with proceeds going to the Lake Erie (Eastern Basin) Mooring Project.  A total of $750.00 was raised for the project and three prizes of $375.00 / $225.00 / $150.00 given out.  Our thanks to the FEURU for their contribution and effort.

For our twelfth annual Shipwrecks Symposium, the Niagara Divers’ Association was very pleased to present:

A selection of full length multi-media presentations by internationally renowned speakers.


Between our primary presentations, we were pleased to introduce several new presenters with a number of 5 minute “shorts”, highlighting new discoveries.
