 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): 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!.

Under no circumstances should you be entering the water in the Niagara River or on the Niagara River side of the Weightman Bridge (Portage Road).

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.

Enter water under Weightman Bridge (Portage Road) (on the South side), and swim to the middle of the river.

Be sure to check current direction, you should be moving away from the bridge in a southerly direction. If you are moving towards the Niagara River GET OUT IMMEDIATELY.

Dive 1 Exit Point is approximately 30 minutes down river. When exiting, avoid the boat ramp - it is signed "NO SCUBA DIVING" - use the grass past the ramp.
