The Conestoga is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located in Prescott, ON, Canada. The maximum depth is 26-30ft/8-9m. The average visibility is 11-15ft/3-5m.

From Ottawa, take River Road South to the intersection of Regional Road No. 22 (Shanley Road). Follow Road No. 22 south to Cardinal. Continue straight toward the river, follow the road past the Legion out onto the dirt road on the causeway approximately 1 km. You will see the engine protruding from the water. There is a parking area

The Conestoga is a great shore dive and is often busy on weekends in the summer. The entrance is easy and you drift with the current onto the wreck. The hull, boilers, and stack remain. The stack can be seen sticking out of the water when approaching the site. You drift along the wreck to the large prop, then make your way through the ship back up against the current. There is lots to grab onto and see, however use caution as there are a lot snags as well. This is a great relaxing dive, and is a good dive to do in a day along with Lock 21 aproximately 20 minutes East, and the Rothsay 20 minutes to the west on Hwy 2.
