The Niagara Divers' Association  We Have It All!!



The Niagara Divers' Association (NDA) was founded in 1988 and currently has about 50 members from around the Niagara Region (Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada). We have one of the most ambitious dive schedules in Ontario. Just about every weekend from Mid-May to the end of September, we're somewhere in the Southern Great Lakes. We cater to all levels of divers, and are one of the very few clubs that offers challenging diving to even the most advanced of divers. From Novice to Trimix, we have something for everyone. In the spring, we host our annual SHIPWRECKS Symposium.

Diveforacure__logo

The 4th annual NDA Dive for a Cure event was held October 6, 2013 at the Welland Scuba Park. $10,000 was raised thanks to all the registered divers, bubblewatchers, volunteers and sponsors.

The 1st three years we raised $7500, $8500, and $9000 respectively, which we donated to the Canadian Cancer Society through registrations, donations, food sales, etc.

This brings our three year total to $35,000 !!

Our 5th annual Dive for a Cure event is scheduled for October 5, 2014. Please mark it on your calendars and spread the word.

CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS- SHIPWRECKS/2015

We are now in the planning stages for our 21st annual one-day symposium on shipwrecks, Shipwrecks/2015 . We are requesting presentations in either of 2 categories:

Primary presentations may be up to 45 minutes in length, but most are approximately 20 - 25 minutes, with additional time allotted for question and answer. Live commentary is preferred to "canned" packages.

Short, 5 minute maximum, presentations (primarily to introduce new topics or presenters) are also being requested.

All presentations should be shipwreck-related and we try for an even split between recreational and technical topics.

Please forward a brief overview of your presentation and a brief biographical sketch to the Shipwrecks Committee at; InfoShipwrecks
