I organize wreck diving trips to the best destinations the Great Lakes has to offer. I have run trips to such legendary wrecks as the Gunilda, Daniel J Morrell, Dunderberg, Cornelia B Windiate, and many others. For students enrolled in one of my courses, these trips offer an exciting way to complete the course dives. I also feel it's important to offer people the opportunity to continue diving after certification. Check out what I have planned for this year and please join me!

Lake Huron (Harbor Beach, MI), June 17-18, 2017

On this weekend, we will be diving deep wrecks off Harbor Beach.  Exact wrecks not yet determined but could include the Daniel J. Morrell (steel freighter), Minnedosa (schooner), Charles A. King (schooner), S.S. Detroit (wooden side-wheeler).

Lake Huron (Presque Isle, MI), June 19-22, 2017

trip full

The waters off Presque Isle, MI have been a busy shipping lane for decades and are home to a number of incredible shipwrecks.  That, coupled with the usually excellent visibility, makes Presque Isle a "must dive" area for any avid wreck diver.  Presque Isle is particularly known for intact wooden wrecks.  There are probably more intact schooners per square mile here than anywhere else.  Legendary wrecks like the Cornelia B. Windiate, Kyle Spangler, Defiance, and John J. Audubon lie in the waters near Presque Isle.

Whitefish Point, Lake Superior, July 17-20, 2017

shipwreck Vienna in Lake SuperiorVirtually every ship traversing Lake Superior passes by Whitefish Point. The peninsula creates the natural harbor of Whitefish Bay. Many ships have been lost trying to reach its shelter. It is in these areas that storms and heavy marine traffic have combined to create a long list of historic shipwreck sites. For this four-day trip, we're chartering with Capt. Greg Such of Shipwreck Adventures. Wrecks are always determined by weather conditions, but we plan to dive wrecks in the 170'-200' range, so trimix certification is required. Possible wrecks include the John B Cowle, John M. Osborne, Samuel Mather and Vienna.  Trimix Diver certification required.

Schooner DunderbergLocated near the tip of Michigan's "thumb," Harbor Beach is a small town near the busy shipping lanes on Lake Huron.  There are lots of great shipwrecks in the area ranging from 140' to over 200' deep.

We're switching gears for our last weekend in Harbor Beach.  For this trip, the Dunderberg is going to be our target.  One of the best schooner wrecks in all of the Great Lakes, the Dunderberg was only in her second shipping season when she was struck by the Empire State and sank.  She is upright and intact in 150' of water.  The highlight of this wreck is her intact bowsprit, complete with carved alligator figurehead.  Adv. Nitrox/Deco Procedures certification required.
