Scuba Diving in Colonel Ellsworth wreck, Lake Michigan, Michigan USA
The Colonel Ellsworth was a 137 ft/41.75 m wooden schooner, built in Euclid, Ohio in 1861. On September 2, 1896 she was caught in a windstorm and collided with the schooner Emily B. Maxwell, while carrying alabaster stone. Her crew was saved by Maxwell, but Colonel Ellsworth sunk at 4 am.
She is located upright, 6 mi/9.56 km east of White Shoals Lighthouse and that’s why she is not often visited. Her stern is damaged, but her bow is in better shape. Much of her hardware, deck fittings and equipment stay untouched. One of her masts lies on the port side lake floor. Divers must have in mind that risks of entanglement exist in the area, due to the fishing nets. Yet the current is mainly limited and the visibility good.
