The Wee Hawk was mistakenly called the Kitty Hawk and is not an attractive dive site, and penetration should not be practiced without considerable training and experience. The silt inside churns up very easily and visibility is very poor. Diver access into the water is at the closed lock gate just east of the wreck. Near lock 28, this site has become a great picnic area and has many attributes dive training sites need.
This wreck is accessed off Highway #2 just 1/2 mile west of Cardinal, Ontario. This hull sits just west of lock 28 just upstream 1/4 mile from the Conestoga.
