Great Lakes Recreational Wreck Diving 

New Dates for July 2018 TBD! Coming soon!

 We will be diving the shipwrecks in Straits of Mackinac in northern Michigan in both Lake Michigan & Lake Huron! There are over a dozen wrecks in the area including the freighter Cedarville a 600ft ship that is one of largest to be lost on the Great lakes next to the Fitzgerald. She sits in just 40ft-105ft of water! We’ll also be diving the Eber Ward a 213ft long Wooden bulk freighter that sank in 1909 and the brig Sandusky that sank in a storm in 1856 with its entire crew. Since this is a recreational trip so both CCR and Open Circuit single tank and doubles divers are welcome to join! Drysuit experience is highly encouraged as water temps range from 45-55F. These wrecks are preserved gems, nothing can be taken from the are except photos and I highly recommend brining a camera!

Trip includes:

  • 6 nights lodging based on double occupancy.
  • 4 days of wreck diving – 2 dives a day (50-130ft)
  • 1 day visiting shipwreck museums, snorkeling, lighthouses & just exploring the area or will be used as a weather day
  • Wrecks we will be diving include the Cedarville, Barnum, William Young,  Eber Ward, Mineapolis, Sandusky, Martain Stalker and more!

Additional costs

  • Food
  • Fills

We will be on a 6 pack boat so we will limit the number of divers on the wreck at a time. I highly suggest doing some colder water work up dives before the trip and making sure you come with a dry drysuit and working equipment. Dress right and enjoy the dives even more!
