Join Our Tech Charter on Lake Huron and dive the following amazing wrecks with us.
Dunderburg: Depth is 155’ to the bottom. The schooner Dunderburg was launched in 1867. She sank off Harbor Beach after a collision on August 13, 1868. She rests fully intact in 155 feet of water. A unique, extremely well preserved figurehead adorns her bow and her cargo of grain is still sitting in her holds.
Glenorchy: Depth is 120 feet. This 356 foot, steel haul freighter, sank with no lives lost. The hull is completely upside down "turtled" and you can gain access to the interior through a port side gunnel, the two engine room doors are propped open and the bow is pretty impressively smashed in. The interior has all the machinery, most of the gauges, a lot of the brass, tons of Burbot and whitefish.
Daniel J. Morrell: We can dive the wreck at a depth of 145’ – 165’. This large freighter was lost in a storm on November 29, 1966. The Morrell is famous for having broken into two sections with her bow coming to rest in 200 feet of water. Her stern remained under power after the loss of the bow and continued on for another 6 miles before settling into 218 feet of water. The wreck's portions lie just north of the Preserve boundary.
Philadelphia: The 236-foot steamer Philadelphia was built in 1868. She was lost in a collision with the steamer Albany on November 7, 1893. She is upright in 120 feet of water. The wreck is mostly intact with her cargo of heating and cooking stoves resting on the deck and scattered on the lake floor next to the hull. The wreck’s noteworthy sights include the engine, two boilers, rudder, propeller, stern capstan, and a load of cast-iron stoves.
