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.

The Lost Forest World of the World’s Largest Cave | Mysterious Universe | DiverSync | Scoop.it
In this technologically advanced age of Google Earth and ever expanding exploration of our planet, there are fewer and fewer places that remain hidden from the gaze of humankind. We are exploring the forests, mountains, and seas of the world at an ever growing pace, and the ancient places that once lied in pristine remoteness beyond our grasp are being uncovered for all to see. But what of under our feet? What of the lost realms of the deep places of the world? In the case on one massive cave in Vietnam, a lost, prehistoric world sat hidden for millions of years deep under the forest floor until pure happenstance started our first steps into a place that time forgot. In 1991, a local farmer by the name of Ho Khanh was walking along a stretch of lush forest within the heart of the Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park in Quang Binh province, near the border between Laos and Vietnam.
