Dive site characteristics
The dive starts from the shore. The visibility can be very reduced according to rain conditions during the days before the dive (the water has already a rusty color). It is a current dive but it’s mild one. It is important to fly the dive flag since there is an important boat traffic over the surface.
In order to obtain some informations about water level and outflow, you can consult the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board web site.
Note: directions are accurate as possible. It is recommended to dive with someone knowing the dive site.
