Wreck Choices

Robert Fryer: 1-35ft

  • The remains of the 290’ Robert Fryer are located in 35’ of water of the “B” island of the Welcome Islands. The steamer was set on fire 1930 as a special event for the citizens of Thunder Bay. This event also lead to the accidental burning of the “B” island when the ropes burned and the Fryer drifted into the island. Still dive-able is the main hull, propeller, rudder and the boiler.

Green River: 50-80ft

  • This 275’ wooden steamer was scuttled in 1932 450’ off of the “B” island of the Welcome Islands. Penetration is possible as the storage areas are still intact and offer a fantastic introduction to wreck penetration.

Puckasaw: 55-80ft

  • This 96’ tug was sunk off the “B” island of the Welcome Islands in 1934 close to the Fryer and the Green River. The tug is sitting upright and is a fun dive. Make sure you dive the large boilers.
