1,000 Islands Snorkeling

Cape Vincent, New York state. The St. Lawrence Seaway and 1,000 Islands region has a variety of fish and wrecks that allow snorkelers to get an up close view of the underwater world. A zebra mussel infestation has made the water very clear. Not far from the boat launch in Cape Vincent, NY is a sunken barge  - over 80 feet long. The barge sunk in 1914, but was built in 1862.  Much of the barge has disintegrated, but the main ribs are still visible, and house many fish - including walleye, yellow perch, white perch, goby, long nose carp, sheepshead (freshwater drum) and small mouth bass.
