This is a fun dive for intermediate and advanced divers. It is not recommended for beginners due to the low visibility. The Ottawa River water is very dark. An old station wagon is also located at the dive site.
The site is located at the Ottawa rowing club. From Highway 417 (Queensway), take the Nicholas exit, and follow the signs towards Hull/Gatineau and Auto route 5. Just past the first set of lights at Laurier Avenue, (Nicholas becomes Waller St.) go straight through the intersections to Rideau St. ("T" Intersection). Turn right onto Rideau St. At the second lights, turn left onto King Edward Ave. Once on King Edward, stay in the right-hand lane and follow the road past the ramp to Hull/Gatineau and Auto route 5. At the end of King Edward ("T" Intersection), turn left onto Sussex Drive. Keep to the right. After the overpass for the bridge to Gatineau, turn right onto Lady Grey Drive. Follow the road down the hill - take the first right (way down). The ORC is at the bottom of the hill on the water's edge (obviously).
