For experienced divers, the Whitefish Point Underwater Preserve offers a fantastic array of wrecks—18 steamers and schooners littered all around the point. (The Edmund Fitzgerald is not among them.) Good visibility is a hallmark of this 376-acre preserve.
Most wrecks lie in deep water, though—ranging 40–270 feet—and in an area with few protected harbors. Needless to say, only very experienced divers and boaters should consider this spot.
