Roy A. Jodry - 1000 Islands


Loading...
The Jodrey is one of the most impressive and beautiful wrecks in the Great Lakes region. Located in the Thousand Islands area of Ontario, approximately in line with the city of Rockport. The Roy A. Jodrey has a total length of 641 feet (194 meters) and lies at the bottom of the St-Lawrence seaway at a depth of 240 feet (72 meters).When first descending into the wreck, the wall that she sits below drops off almost vertically from 5 feet to more than 230 feet. Upon reaching the wreck, the first thing that comes to into view is the bow railing, the wheel house and the ship mast at about 150 feet. As you descend, you reach the main deck between 180 feet and 200 feet. It should also be noted that the wreck sits on a 40 to 45 degree list on its starboard side.You may travel along the port railing and will eventually reach the stern, 600 ft further at an average depth of 210 feet. When coming back, you are likely to experience a cross current of 3 to 4 knots. As for the bow section, the current is rarely over 1 or 2 knots.
The visibility in the Thousand Islands is excellent due to the proliferation of the Zebra mussels

This site is expert Only and for the most adventurous and experienced divers.This site is used as training for the Andrea Doria. Deep tech is required to get to the ship at 160’ to touch it, and if you want to explore you will need trimix. The current on the way in was for me about 3 knots, we didn’t even have to kick to get to the ship. Unfortunately the way back up was more scaling a mountain hand over hand back up the wall rather than swimming with 4 knots or better. It is highly advised to go with someone who has dove the site and knows it well. Rebreather a plus on this site. All in all my favorite dive of all time so far.
