Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at America Wreck
The America was the old ferry that transported people from Wisconsin to Isle Royal National park. It sank however when it struck a shoal. Still today the incoming ferry stops to let passengers see the wreck which is visible from the surface, its bow cutting the current. The America is an amazingly intact wreck. Located only 100 feet of shore it lies in about 50 feet of water but it is on an angle and its bow rises only 3 feet below the surface. It is worth noting that their is a significant current on the surface but below three of four feet the water is still. The wreck offers everything to suit all types of divers. Inside the wreck you can see wiring running to old lights. One of the most spectacular aspects of this wreck is the grand stair case that truly reminds you of the titanic. The America is located at the very west end of Isle Royal national park near the Windigo visitor center. Access is by boat. The wreck is located in 3-50 feet of water.
