Brockville Things to Do

  • Cruising the St Lawrence

    This was primarily a dive trip, so we spent a lot of time on the water. Cruising the thousand islands region was a very pleasant experience I would recommend to anyone. The constantly changing scenery includes unique birds and wildlife, passing ships and big houses built on small islands - sometimes tiny islands without an inch to spare! The...

  • Wreck Diving with Abucs Scuba

    We came to wreck dive, and Helen and her crew at Abucs did not disappoint. They have a full service dive shop downtown, and charter boats both in Brockville and nearby Rockport. We came with a big crowd, and everyone from Abucs went the extra mile to accommodate us. Top notch operation!

  • Scuba Diving

    Brockville, believe it or not, has some of the best fresh-water wreck diving in the world. Excellent visibility (30-60ft) and nice temps from surface to silt (July/Aug 70s). I particularly enjoy a nice Thursday evening drift dive.With several charter operators and a few shore dive opportunities, this is a great place to base your dive adventure.

    I was glad we chose Nakhon for our last dinner out in Brockville. I was concerned due to some negative comments I read regarding the service, but we had no significant problems, in my opinion.. We ordered yellow curry, pad thai and drunken noodles - all were excellent. Service was ok ( I was told they get very busy some nights of the week and the...

  • Cantonese or Steakhouse?

    The New York Restaurant appeared to be a Chinese restaurant, but based on the menu seemed to double as a steakhouse.We had some initial problems with service until the owner came over and waited our table herself. I chose a safe shrimp with lobster sauce that I found satisfactory. The rest of our group were not so lucky, having ordered sirloin tips...

  • Pub with a past

    Why is a pub in the "off the beaten path" category? This pub is unique because of its history. The Keystorm was once a bank where one of the largest bank robberies in history took place. Articles posted on the wall describe the event, and the original safe door from the bank is still in place.As a pub, the Keystorm has a great atmosphere. They have...
