Clear Blue Kayak Garden Island Shipwreck Tour
Blue World Marine Adventures introduces a brand new underwater viewing experience to Kingston, with a special tour to Garden Island, home to one of the most accessible historical ship graveyards in the Great Lakes, with more than a dozen wooden sail and steamships, dating back to the early 1800’s.
We use one or two-person transparent kayaks that offer an unparalleled view of real historical shallow water shipwrecks in the clear lake waters of Lake Ontario up close, and tell the story of these vessels at the place they came to rest, by accident or design, and in doing so bring the vessels, their people, and their history back to life.
Our tour starts with a boat ride from downtown Kingston out to the tour site. During the boat ride our tour staff will brief our adventurers on the history of the site and nearby Garden Island, and review the conditions on site and safety procedures. All tours are accompanied by qualified, personable tour guides with safety training, and all the necessary equipment including personal flotation devices are provided.
Our tours depart the Confederation Basin Marina, near the Delta Waterfront Hotel, in downtown Kingston, every day of the week (weather permitting). Blue World provides everything you need, including personal flotation device, instruction on the safe handling of the kayak, a dry bag to take with you for your personal items, and bottled water.
