I have dived this site 15 or 20 times over the year. For those landlocked in Alberta, this wreck is a nice change from the usual lake and pool dives we do. This dive is best done in the early spring (before runoff), or in late fall (just before the freeze). In the summer months the lake is quite silty, and it can be very hard to see anything. Vis is much better in the early spring or late fall. This site is an excellent place for beginner and intermediary divers. It's also a great place for a night dive. Often, schools of fish can be found inside of the wreck. The entry/exit is easy, there are great facilities right at the lake (cook shelters, toilettes, tables), and you're only 5 minutes away from the ice cream store!
