Adventurers Dive Log: Portsmouth Olympic Harbour at Kingston

Portsmouth Harbour as we know it today was created for the Sailling Olympics in 1967. For centuries it was a ship building center. Today it is one of the busiest ports in the area for pleasure boaters.

Virtually every service a boater or diver could want are close at hand. For those with smaller craft, the boat launch allows easy access and lots of parking. This harbour is also home to C.O.R.K. (Canadian Olympic Regatta Kingston). This event, held every August, is the largest freshwater regatta in the world. Many world class sailors from around the world attend this event.

Divers can get air fills at Limestone Dive Centre. They can even point out some interesting shore dives should the weather prohibit going out onto the lake.

To find Portsmouth Olmpic from land take Highway 401 to the Sir John A. McDonald Blvd exit Follow the Blvd to it's end at King St. West. Turn right, you'll see it on the left at the bottom of the hill. From the water, look for the flag poles to the west of Kingston Pententiary. You can't miss the Limestone walls from the water!
