Lake Michigan, the second largest of the Great Lakes of North America by volume and the third largest by surface area, is actually the only one located entirely within the United States. Over the years, a large number of ships have sunk in the Straits of Mackinac, due to sudden and harsh storms. The Straits of Mackinac Underwater Preserve accommodates more than thirteen shipwrecks. One of them is the Minneapolis wreck.

Scuba Diving in Western River Cove, Kangaroo Island, South Australia Australia
Divided in 6 distinguished sections, the remote and isolated North Coast offers numerous coastal spots for scuba diving. Western River Cove is a spectacular, quiet beach, far away from the crowd, in the north coastline of the island. Western River flows through the valley and into the sea. To identify the spot, just cross over the footbridge along the riverbank, leading you to a hidden sandy cove.
Most of the cove makes for a great dive, but the best part of the cove lies on the western headland, a long walk from the car park, but well worth the effort. The spot is suitable for beginner divers while its maximum depth declines to 14 m/45 ft. Diving group sessions are organized by training schools, mostly based in Kingscote or Adelaide. This picturesque area is ideal divers to admire the islands seal-lions in their natural seat.
Diving and fishing charters depart from Western River Cove along the spectacular North Coast. The spot is not accessible for caravans and camper-vans over 5 m/16 ft, however some barbecue, camping facilities and toilets are available in the surroundings. Flinders Chase National Park in the west of the island offers an alternative getaway, where koalas bask in the gum trees and seals basking on the beach. Don’t get surprised if kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, goannas and Platypi come across your way.
