Alpena Shipwreck Tours
Explore the shipwrecks of the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The crystal clear waters and our large ‘glass bottom’ viewing wells allow you to dive the wrecks – without getting wet. During our 2 hour cruise you will experience the magnificently preserved shipwrecks and the scenic shorelines of Thunder Bay. Learn the exciting tales of many famous ships and the history, legends and lore of Lake Huron.
Our tour boat, Lady Michigan, is a passenger vessel 65 feet in length. Two levels provide plenty of room to move around, and seating is cushioned for comfort. The open upper deck has ample seating for those who care to enjoy the outdoor elements during the cruise. The lower deck is heated with ample seating and is equipped with ‘glass bottom’ viewing wells. These windows, a unique feature on tour boats of the Great Lakes, will allow passengers to view shipwreck remains during their cruise. Our captain, with up to date electronic equipment, will be able to situate Lady Michigan directly over the shipwreck. Leave your diving equipment at home — you won’t have to get wet to enjoy the historic wrecks just below the waves!
An enclosed and heated lower deck, cushioned seating, and restrooms are provided for your comfort.
Lady Michigan is newly constructed, with twin diesel engines and stabilizers for comfort on the Great Lakes. She is also equipped with the latest technology in navigation, radar, and radio equipment. Life Saving Devices are provided for every passenger on the boat, and
