Drive & Drive Report: 1000 Islands Region

This past weekend some of the Scuba Shack staff took a short Drive & Dive trip to Canada. We went up to the 1000 Islands Region on the St. Lawrence River. We stayed at a great resort named Caigers which is right on the water and Jeff at the Rockport Dive Center took care of our charters as well as gas fills.

We did two full days of diving under almost cloudless skies, we logged four wreck dives and 220 minutes of bottom time at an average depth of 65 ft. It was great to just relax with friends and do some diving.

Scuba Shack will be running more of these trips next year and I encourage all of our advanced divers to join us.
