Presque Isle, MI July 26-29, 2022
One of the best wreck diving destinations in Great Lakes is a small area of Lake Huron off Presque Isle, MI, just north of Alpena. This area is home to a fabulous collection of shipwrecks, most notably upright, intact wooden schooners like the Kyle Spangler, Cornelia B. Windiate, Typo, Defiance and Audubon. If that's not enough to convince you, there is also the Florida, a 300-foot long wooden steamer and the Norman, a 300-foot steel steamer.
Charter fee is $875 per person (4 days of diving). The depth of wrecks is 170' to 200' Trimix Diver certification required.

Isle Royale National Park July 10-14, 2022
Lake Superior is home to some of the most pristine wrecks in the world and Isle Royale is home to some of the best wrecks in Lake Superior! Isle Royale is remote, rugged island far from civilization in northern Lake Superior. Zebra and quagga mussels have not been able to flourish in Lake Superior as they have in the lower lakes so you can still see bare wood with paint still visible. You can read the ship's name painted on the transom. Isle Royale is remote and undeveloped wilderness. This will be a liveaboard trip designed to reach the best wreck diving in the Great Lakes. Target wrecks include the Emperor, Congdon and Kamloops.
Charter fee is $1250 (5 days of diving) per person. Diving depths will reach 260'. Advanced Trimix Diver certification required.
