Wreck Fresh water Ice
Located just north of Ottawa and 4 km south of Wakefield, Quebec. The quarry is better known as the jump point for Great Canadian Bungee. The quarry has a depth greater than 30m (confirmed to 123 feet) and probably reaches a depth of about 40m. The shallow end is 20-25 feet deep. Like most quarries it has a road spiralling down to the deepest part (with a nice drop off in the shallow end). Along the submerged road are numerous attractions, a sunken twin engine plane, a tug boat, small car, picnic table and some jagged pipes sticking straight up at about 20m along the back side wall. All the attractions are marked with buoys. The water is spring feed and cool all the time necessitating a wetsuit if you want to stay in the water for a while.
I found it to be a great training area. There is no supervision/life guard.
The quarry site is on private land. There is a $10.00 fee to help maintain the above-water site in pristine condition.
