Explore The Keweenaw From The Water

The Keweenaw offers a rugged coastline that competes with that of the legendary Isle Royale, only without the ferryboat ride. It highlights a mixture of uninhabited wilderness areas, intermittent parks and nature preserves and sheltered harbors that offer the weary paddler the option for a hot meal, a hot shower or lodging at a comfy inn. The Keweenaw Water Trail is unique because it allows the ability to paddle a loop and return to your point of origin without having to backtrack.  Never kayaked before?  Don't have your own gear?  There are a few sporting goods stores and guide services that can help with that so what are you waiting for?  Grab your paddle and let's go!

Keweenaw Underwater Preserve

Due to its location on the Lake’s south shore, it has often been a “catcher’s mitt” for lost ships. Because of its location and extensive mining and settlement activities, shipwrecks and artifacts are scattered along the coast. Eagle River,  Eagle Harbor and Copper Harbor all host a variety of shipwrecks dating to the 1800’s. Among the best shipwreck dives in the Keweenaw Underwater Preserve are:

Mesquite - The wreck of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Mesquite is the premier dive destination in the Preserve.
Tioga - The ship's debris including her boilers and engine can be examined in 28' to 35' of water.
City of St. Joseph - The wreck lies broken and flattened out in shallow water ranging from 25' to 35'.
John Jacob Astor - Claim to being the oldest known shipwreck on Lake Superior near the dock of old Fort Wilkins in up to 35'.
Langham - Off Bete Grise Bay settled in up to 105'.
Wasaga - Copper Harbor in water depths up to 35'.

The dive sites are not generally buoyed. Visiting divers should be prepared to locate them. The Keweenaw Peninsula is also home to unique geological formations that supplement shipwreck diving. One good area to visit is Esrey Park located about halfway between Copper Harbor and Eagle Harbor. This roadside park is an easy shore dive and a great  place to look for agates, copper and other unique Copper Country treasures.

Endless Opportunities
