A Guide To A Variety Of Shipwreck Sites
This map shows relative locations for Shipwrecks in and near the preserve. Please help us verify all locations. If you dive one of the wrecks let us know when you dove it and what numbers you used.
Map instructions and map legend are located below the map.
Clicking on an object marker will bring up a link to a detail page on that object including a variety of GPS/location numbers when they are available.
-This marker denotes and object where GPS numbers are intentionally inaccurate or not available. Using these GPS number to dive will most likely not result in finding the object. Never dive deeper then your training or your equipment allows safely.

According to State Law:
No person shall recover, alter or destroy abandoned property which is in, on or over the bottomlands of the Great Lakes, including those within a bottomlands Preserve, unless the person has a permit issued jointly by the Secretary of State and the DEQ.
Note: Mooring, anchoring and diving at any of the sites is at your own risk. The SWMUP maintains buoys at some of the sites, but there is no guarantee it will be in place when you arrive. Visibility can range from 0-80+ feet, depending on depth and weather conditions.
Please check our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/swmup?fref=ts for the latest condition updates. The SWMUP is working to promote and develop more sites though side scan searches and intentional vessel sinkings.
