04/27/2009 Anonymous (Avg: 2.56 Review) - Did the shore dive around the dock ruins behind Munising high school. This was my first time diving Lake Superior, but certainly won't be my last. The visibility was incredible, well over 30 feet. Very shallow around the ruins, only 15-20 feet. I was fairly comfortable in a 7mm wetsuit in late July. Decently long swim, and the entry was done over rocks, but not overly difficult. There are some old maritime artifacts to see, the majority of which are actually a little bit to the west of the pilings. Nice easy dive for a beginning diver like myself. Not sure it would be of much interest to an experienced diver. I did this dive to get a feel for the cold and clear water of lake superior. Could be easily snorkeled as well. I look forward to diving many of the wrecks in this preserve.
