    The Straits have magnificent diving for all skill levels, you can make almost all of the divers recreationally or you can go out to some of the deeper ones and stay longer for some technical diving.

    Also, all the Great Lakes have some great diving and outstanding preservabliy, wrecks like the Windiate and Dunderburg are very intact even today

    While I agree with your assessment of diving in the Straits, I was referring to the shipwreck named "The Straits of Mackinac" not the passage between upper Lake Michigan and Lake Huron.

    Haha, my fault, I did think it was odd that you were referencing specific shipwrecks, then an entire area, so definately my mistake there. Nonetheless, there's still some great wrecks there!

    Haigh quarry
    Cerulean Quarry (now closed)
    Dive Stop Quarry (close to home an easy 45 min drive)
    Bonne Terre Mine (a little expensive to dive reguarly)
