Great Lakes diving! We will be diving up to 130 feet
deep in cold water; cold-water equipment with redundancy
(pony bottle, doubles, or H-valve) are required for all
divers to safely enjoy these shipwrecks. Deep Diver, or
Advanced Open Water diver certification with significant
cold-water deep experience strongly recommended.
With the success of our current schedule everyone will be doing
five dives again. This
package includes 3 dives on Saturday and 2 dives on
Sunday. All dives will be made from the St. Ignace
side of the Straits. Wrecks we are hoping to hit
(weather permitting) are the Eber Ward, and the
Cedarville from both ends. Other wrecks TBD.
Space is limited so book now if your are interested in
what Brian thinks is some of the best shipwreck diving
available in the Great Lakes today.
Pricing for 2017 will be $359. Lodging
is not included but can be priced separately; inquire
about your many options and let us help you have a
wonderful vacation. With Mackinac Island only a
ferry ride away, bring the family for a wonderful
weekend even if they aren't divers!

cottage this year. Bring your own drinks but food
and a good time for all will be taken care of!
