35 Feet Deep in St Maartin

Just got back from my dive planning meeting.

Dive Planning meeting for our Canadian Scuba Trip to Brockville, Canada

Just got back from the dive planning meeting for the trip to Canada.  Awesome diving coming up!


We’re going to dive the Keystorm which was built in 1908.  The boat sun October 12, 1912 in the St. Lawrence River near Brockville, Ontario Canada.  She was a 2300 ton (256’ x 43’) steel steamer.  The ship was carrying 2230 tons of coal on it’s way to Ohio.  Around 45 minutes past Alexandria Bay in heavy fog on October 12, 1912, she ran into a shoal and began to sink.

She now lays at the bottom of the sea, starting in 20 feet of water and the screw is around 115 feet deep.  To read more: Go Here or Go Here.

The America:
I’m not sure when the ship was built, but it sunk July 29, 1932 in 70 feet of water.  The ship is a 297 ton seam screw drill barge.  The ship is upside down near Dark Island in the shipping channel.  To read more: Go Here or Go Here.

That’s the first day of diving.  On the second day of diving, we’ll be hitting:

Henry C. Daryaw:
A ship built in 1919 that lays in around 90 feet of water.  She is 219 feet long by 35 feet wide and 13 feet tall.  She is a large ship with a gross tonnage of 1265.  She tore a large gash in her starboard side and sunk on November 21, 1941.  To read more: Go Here.

Lillie Parsons:
A  ship built in 1868 that sunk on August 5th, 1877.  The Lillie’s bow is around 70 feet deep on a rock slope, and the bow is around 20 feet deep.  To read more: Go Here or Go Here.

I’m looking forward to some great diving in 73 degree water with 50 feet of visibility!
