As you navigate through the channels and around the shoals, past the buoys and giving rock markers a wide berth, you may find yourself wondering how ships navigated this part of the St. Lawrence River. Truth is, before navigation aids and beacons, there were many ships that ran into trouble and didn’t do that well. They sank. These tragedies have made the Thousand Islands one of the best freshwater diving areas in the world.
