Isle Royal National Park 2016

This trip gets better and better each year.  For 2016 we had a great group of people, awesome weather and a great time.  The visibility was not as good as in the years past (20ft - 40ft) the water was comparably warmer.  Where we had less than stellar vis we had warmer water which was a great trade off. Every night we were in a port with a shower (it doesn't always happen that way) and the meals were awesome.

We did a bunch of dives on some great sites.  We did four dives on the Emperor including three on the totally intact stern portion strewn with artifacts. Also on the list we dived the Chisholm Engine, America, Monarch, Cox  and the Congdon Bow.  If you are a shipwreck fan this is the trip for you. If you are traveling from far away and want to experience the Great Lakes at its finest, this is a sure way to get in some epic diving.

We have made this excursion every year since 2011 and it never fails to be amazing.  The Isle Royale National Park is one of the least visited of all the national parks and in our opinion one of the most spectacular as far as rustic wilderness. We travel there every year during the last full week in July.  We hope that you would join us on one of the trips but do not wait too long,  this trip tends to sell out well in advance and we have never had a cancellation so we do not make a waiting list.

Check out our Facebook Page for more pictures of this epic adventure.  Hope to see  you diving with us very soon.

Back from Munising Michigan

Last weekend we took at trip to Munising Michigan.  This has been an annual trip for Divers Incorporated for the past 10 years and each year is as amazing as the previous ones.  For our tenth anniversary we took a special trip to the Kiowa.  This cool ship is about an hour and 45 minutes out of Munising into Lake Superior.   We were planning on doing the Kiowa on Saturday but the weather took a rough turn and we had to switch days.

Saturday's dives became the Smith Moore (75') and the Bermuda (25') and they were fantastic.  The visibility on the Smith Moore was one of the best days I have seen and the water was in the mid 50's which is usually unheard of.

On Sunday Lake Superior was nearly glass as we traveled out for our first dive on the Selvick (60ft) and then out past the Pictured Rocks National Lake shore to see the Kiowa (30')  The Kiowa was an amazing wreck.

Along with the great group of people diving with us,  the dives on the shallower wrecks were accompanied by Natalie and Olivia doing their first Real Dives in Lake Superior outside of the protection of Munising Harbor.

We do this trip with Divers Incorporated each year on the second weekend in July.  We hope you can join us on it sometime soon!
