About the chapter

The Goal of the Hamilton Chapter Committee of Save Ontario Shipwrecks is to promote the preservation of our local wrecks through responsible diving so that all may enjoy them.

Very laudable, but we also have a lot of fun doing it through the placement of Coast Guard approved mooring buoys on unmarked wrecks, maintenance of sites and the occasional lecture.
