Shipwrecks of

Alpena, Michigan

Experience the best


Traveling with friends from Cincinnati SCUBA & Aquatics ensures a hassle-free experience and an amazing adventure led by a seasoned professional.


Alpena, Michigan

Beneath the cool fresh water of the Great Lake's lie some the best preserved shipwrecks in the world. Numbering into the thousands. Each with its own unique history. Some over a century old. Come visit these majestic vessels with us. 

The Great Lakes once were the freeways to the country's interior, providing goods long before the transcontinental railroad was completed.  Due to weather or other unforeseen events, some of those ships ever reached their destination, sending the vessel and its cargo to the watery deep. There they remain frozen in time thanks to the conserving effects of the cooler fresh water of the Great Lakes.

This trip will cater to both technical and advanced recreational divers. From double mast schooners to sidewheel steamers, discover their stories this August.
