Want to explore shipwrecks in Lake Huron? There a multitude of shipwrecks to dive - a stones throw away from Middle Island! Dive
anywhere from Presque Isle to Thunder Bay Island. The easiest way to explore this northern half of the Thunder Bay National Marine
Sanctuary and Underwater Preserve is with Capt. Mike aboard Island Freighter II. This vessel has plenty of space to store your gear and
offers the needed stability when donning it. The Island Freighter II is an ideal dive platform with twin 150 Horsepower outboards. So, even if
the dive destination was far, (which most aren't) it wouldn't take long to get there.
After a long day of diving, what could be better than a relaxing boat tour around Middle Island, then, maybe an overnight stay with a bonfire
on the beach? There is even an interesting sinkhole near the lodge you could shore dive. Capt. Mike has a deal for you!
Bring a group of 8-10 divers and two one tank dives are only $100!
Pay only $80 for lodging (per person) when your group is staying two nights.
One day of diving consists of at least 2 - 1 tank dives.
2 - 1 tank dives are only $110 per person with a lodge stay. (Regular price is $120 without a lodge stay.)
We can refill your tanks for only $12 each, delivered to the island! You'll love the convenience of and relaxation of this location!
