Place: Straights of Mackinac  |  City: Saint Ignace, United States

The Straits of Mackinac Underwater Preserve lies at the northern tip of Lakes Michigan and Huron. The five mile long Mackinac Bridge links Michigan's two peninsulas and marks the dividing point of the two lakes.

The Straits has a well-deserved reputation as a dangerous area to navigate. The region is populated with rocky shoals and shallows that place ships in peril. Perhaps even worse are the storms that can enter the narrow Straits and quickly magnify wind and waves. Over the years large numbers of ships have foundered in the Straits. Many have yet to be discovered.

St. Ignace, on the northern side of the straits (where we will be staying), offers plenty of accommodations and restaurants.  The Mackinac Bridge, which crosses the straits within sight of popular Mackinac Island, is a top attraction in itself.

6 slots are reserved, so sign up now and reserve your spot!

Personal instruction, Excellent price

Personal instruction, equipment they used was fairly new and well maintained.  We liked the instructor, explained everything so that we could understand...very patient with the students.  Excellent price for the open water course.
