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
