#369115 Great Lakes, not so exotic but worth it just the same!

Posted by Hubby63 on 09 January 2016 - 02:59 PM

That certainly is a problem with tek diving, gear gear and more gear, but I do have to say CCR is especially nice in cold water since the breathing air is warmed by the chemical reaction of the scrubber.  Drysuit heating technology has also made this much more comfortable as well.   I am ashamed to admit that the great lakes are in my own backyard and I am just now discovering these gems.   If you are interested,  there is another trip this year, check out Lust4Rust.co for more info.  

 

cheers

I love this part of the wet pixel forum! It's a great spot to see some terrific pics and gather ideas of unique and exotic dive destinations (usually warmer ones)!  But in stepping outside the box, I thought I would post a few pics from our trip last summer to Presque Isle, Michigan.  The PI (as the locals call it) is a wreck divers paradise with stellar viz, pristine wooden 1800's sailing ships, and early 1900's steamers, submerged in the chilly and sometimes even brutally cold Lake Huron waters (mostly less than 200ft/60m).  But if you are dressed right, i.e. drysuit, dry gloves, heated vest etc; you are in for a real treat not found in other parts of the world and well worth the visit!  We did it with Lust4Rust.co diving excursions (noted for CCR/OC wreck diving in such exotic locales as Truk, Bikini, Sri Lanka etc.).  We called it “Lust for Wood” so to speak.
