Lake Michigan is one of the five Great Lakes, the only one placed entirely within the United States and the second largest Great Lake by volume. It has the same surface elevation as Lake Huron, making the two technically a single lake. The Straits of Mackinac connects Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. Over the years, many ships have sunk in the Straits. One of the shipwrecks lying in the Straits of Mackinac Underwater Preserves is St. Andrew.

Scuba Diving in The Norma Wreck, Adelaide, South Australia Australia
The metropolitan area of Adelaide is famous for the variety and great number of diving sites it has to offer (you can visit some of the most impressive shipwrecks in the whole world here). The waters have the perfect temperature for scuba diving (warm during the summer and crystal clear during the winter), and are generally friendly and uncrowded.
The Norma, close to Port of Adelaide, was a 26 m/85 ft long steel boat that sunk in 1907, as a result of the collision with the steel Ardencraig ship. All that remains today is an impressive mass of steel, masts and other parts of the boat creating an artificial reef on the sandy bottom of the sea. It is perfect for beginner scuba divers.
Maximum depth: 15 m/49 ft.
