This location, if used as a dive site, has inherent hazards!!
The water flow - current direction, current speed and water levels are all subject to change - at any time - without warning!.
Always contact a local dive store prior to diving this site to see if there are any known changes expected to the water flow in the Chippawa Creek / Welland River.
This is no guarantee that the creek is safe for diving.
The Chippawa Creek originally ran in the opposite direction. Dredging during the building of the Welland Canal and Ontario Hydro hydroelectric projects reversed the flow of the creek.
Swim across river to start the dive. Approximately, 30 minutes into the dive you will come across some sunken cars.
Be sure to check current direction, you should be moving away from the entry point in a southerly direction. If you are moving towards the Niagara River GET OUT IMMEDIATELY.
The dive will last 60 - 75 minutes depending on current, and length of time spent at sunken car site.
