Centeen Memorial Dive Park

June 29, 2017

Our second dive in the St. Lawerence river was very close to shore at the Centeen Memorial Dive Park. Creation of the park started in 2015 with the assistance of the City of Brockville, as well and the students of the local schools who constructed many of the statues. The park centres on five human sculptures looking upward as a memorial to those who have lost their lives on the busy St. Lawrence seaway.

Surrounding the memorial statues the park has many more statues laid out in concentric circles for easy navigation.

I found this little crawfish hanging out on one of the park benches. There wasn't a lot of wildlife in the area so it was good to find something down there.

We continued to explore the site and stopped to check out almost all of the statues.

There was even a structure spelling out SOS (Save Our Shipwrecks). An initiative to protect the shipwrecks in the area. It provided a good opportunity to practice buoancy by doing swim-throughs of the letters. The visibilty here was better than on the Daryaw but it was still difficult to make objects out at a distance.

That ended our dive and we surfaced to warm up on the trip back to the dock.
