Isle Royale Wreck Diving

August 7th – August 11th
Intermediate to Advanced
$1000 per person

Experience some of the best, well preserved, wrecks the Great Lakes have to offer. Isle Royale National Park offers some spectacular diving and stunning scenery.

Isle Royale National Park is a wilderness island located 20 miles from the Minnesota shore of Lake Superior. Beautiful but treacherous islands and shoals surround this 50 mile long island. These shoals have claimed about a dozen large ships. You will dive a variety of wrecks from historic wooden ships to modern steel boats on your trip. Portholes and artifacts still remain for you to see, enjoy, photograph, and leave behind.

The diving depths range from 2 feet to 140 feet. There are 10 major wrecks including: Chisholm Engine, Cumberland/Chisholm, Cox, America, Emperor Stern and Bow, Congdon Bow, Monarch, Algoma, and the Glenlyon. The wrecks sites of the Kamloops and the Congdon Stern are for tech trips only. The water temperature around Isle Royale ranges from 39 to 60 degrees and in places will certainly be less than 45 degrees.  The visibility ranges from 70 feet to 20 feet but generally averages 40 feet.

Three of the wrecks have multiple decks and rooms for penetration dives and there is at least one night dive so a dive light is required
