Isle Royale: Wreck Diving Fit for Royalty

The Great Lakes have many shipwreck “hot spots”: places where the tragedies have piled up over the decades due to wicked currents, foul weather and geographic constrictions. These hot spots typically contain many wrecks representing most or all of the major types of vessels and eras of shipping, all packed into a small area, making them “must see” destinations for divers. Isle Royale in north western Lake Superior is one such example. Sprinkled around this 45-mile long island divers will find everything from 20th century steel freighters to 19th century wooden steamers. Many of these ships fell victim to inclement weather, some to collisions with other vessels, and some met their demise on the rocks. The historic wrecks at Isle Royale represent some of the best diving the Great Lakes has to offer; and with consistently good visibility, (usually 25 to 40 feet), you are virtually guaranteed an unforgettable experience.
