About the chapter

The goal of the Thousand Islands Chapter of Save Ontario Shipwrecks is to promote the preservation of our local shipwrecks and promote low impact diving so that all may enjoy them.  We make these local shipwrecks safely accessible through the placement of Coast Guard approved mooring buoys.  Our local volunteers work tirelessly on improving the diving and training facilities at Centeen Park, the maintenance of site moorings and the occasional lecture to promote the SOS mission.

In 2014 SOS Thousand Islands Charter created the Centeen Memorial Dive Park, where new divers can practice their skills and master buoyancy before exploring the fragile shipwrecks.  With the purchase of a $10 annual dive token, divers can enjoy Canada’s first underwater sculpture, currently home to 31 exhibits.
