Lake Huron's Scuba Diving

Lake Huron is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. It is freshwater. Closer to the Canadian Province of Ontario the North Channel and Georgian Bay flow into the lake, where thousands of tiny islands are located. To the southwest, you'll find the rather small Saginaw Bay, where around 200 shipwrecks have been registered. Huron's coastline is more than 6,000 km long. Fans of wreck diving will find the lake interesting since its waters hide the remains of more than 1000 sunken ships. One of the most famous wrecks is a European ship Le Griffon that went to the bottom because of a storm. A load is still inside it — a car.
