Diving Thunder Bay

Dec. 2016

Already thinking ahead to warmer summer days? Take a virtual diving trip to Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary!


Hey guys, this is Dave Ruck, I'm the videographer for the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries and we're finally here in Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary in Alpena, Michigan. We're gonna head out on the Boston Whaler and dive on some wrecks.

So this is a really exciting opportunity for us to test some new gear.

A lot of these wrecks just haven't been documented that well, so today's the day we're going to start a week-long adventure, really, of getting great imagery of these sites.

We got some HD video on Montana, on the Thew. Saw several different shipwrecks from several different genres. They were doing many different things to make the Great Lakes one of the world's busiest waterways.

All in all, a really great day, and now we're heading back in, so look forward to continuing on this week, looking at the footage we got and then getting some more later on.
