Whitefish Point Underwater Preserve.

Paradise - White Fish Point, Michigan - Lake Superior

diveflag.jpg wf1.jpg The 376 square mile Whitefish Point Underwater Preserve offers diving experiences in Lake Superior on a variety of shipwrecks. Excellent visibility is one of the benefits of diving Whitefish. Divers can usually expect 30-50 feet of visibility at 100 feet, and greater visibility at deeper depths. July and August are the best months to visit this preserve because weather patterns are most stable. There are few protected areas in this region of Lake Superior and the nearest U.S. Coast Guard Station is about an hour away so boaters must exercise extreme caution.

Divers using their own boats will find launches at Whitefish Point, Little Lake Harbor, Tahquamenon Bay, Brimley State Park, and Bay Mills.

Divers and non-divers alike will enjoy a visit to this area because of the wilderness scenery, expansive beaches, Tahquemenon Falls State Park, and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum located at the tip of the point. The Museum offers divers an opportunity to learn about the rich maritime heritage of the region.

Personal Note
There is no place like this, ship wrecks at their very best, in cold, fresh water.
