    Name: J.C.Morrison wreck
    Description:Paddle wheel boat
    Level: Beginner
    Depth: 26-30'
    Location: Barrie
    Directions: Attached
    Maps Attached

    Very easy, relaxing shore dive. Not much left from the boat except ribs below the original water line, paddle wheel parts and some constructions. Everything covered with zebra mussels. There is a lot of silt on the bottom, so good buoyancy control and proper fin kicks are required. In winter this site is good for ice diving. In summer months it makes sense to have surface flotation device as there are many fishing boats around the wreck.

    Additional information can be found at:

    The following site contains veru thorough description of Kingston wrecks and, what is very important, the GPS coordinates of 24 wrecks. Few of them are accessible from the shore.

    If you don't mind camping it is possible in Lake Ontario Park which is on King str.

    Boat launch can be done in the same park or closeby in Portsmouth Olympic Harbour marina. Air fills can be done in the same marina.

    This is a great idea my friend,
    Once I get some dives under my belt, I hope to have some input into this thread. In the meantime I will take notes and try a couple out. :)
