“Shipwrecks/2016″was held on Saturday, April 9, 2016. We had approximately 400 people in attendance. For 2015, we had 39 door prizes donated ($2000.00 value) 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 $1250.00 was raised for the project and three prizes of $625.00/ $375.00 / $250.00 given out. 

Our thanks to the FEURU and all those individuals for their contributions to the Mooring Project.

For our Twenty-Second annual Shipwrecks Symposium, the Niagara Divers’ Association is very pleased to present:

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

Our Master of Ceremonies Jill Heinerth will also draw on her unique story-telling gifts to intersperse and showcase snippets of her favourite adventure stories throughout the day.
