Prescott is home to a dive training park and presents an excellent opportunity to learn new dive skills or refresh yours after a time away. The Prescott Scuba Park includes a ramped entry for easy access, an underwater training area with platforms and stairs, three submerged anchors, as well as the sunken dinghy the S.S. Prescott.
With largely clear visibility and ample parking, this makes the Prescott Scuba Park an excellent location to spend a summer Saturday!
You can also make Prescott your home-base to explore regional diving attractions like the Rothesay (2 km west of Prescott Scuba Park) and the Conestoga (15 km east).

The Conestoga was an American freighter that sank due to a fire while attempting to traverse the Galop Canal in 1922. The wreck rests south of Cardinal, 15 minutes east of Prescott. It can be identified by the upper portion of the steeple engine that protrudes above the water.
The Rothesay was a 19th century wooden side wheeler original launched in St. John in 1868. It sank in 1889 following a collision with a tug. The ship was rediscovered in 1964, and can be found just west of Prescott in Riverview Heights.
