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
Lake Erie Mooring Project

Dive For a Cure
The 5th annual NDA Dive for a Cure event was held
October 5, 2014 at the Welland Scuba Park. $10,700 was raised
thanks to all the registered divers, bubblewatchers, volunteers and
The first four years we raised $7500, $8500, $9000 and $10,000 respectively,
which we donated to the Canadian Cancer Society through registrations,
donations, food sales, etc.
This brings our five year total to $45,700 !!
We regret that due to increased insurance costs and other logistical problems our Dive For a Cure event is on hold at the present time.
