Snorkeling in Metropolis Shipwreck, Grand Traverse Bay, Michigan USA
The Metropolis was a 38 m/125 ft long, 2 mast, wooden schooner, built in Cleveland in 1857. On November 26, 1886, while carrying iron fittings and lumber, she fell prey of a snowstorm and went down south of Old Mission Point. The cargo of pig iron and lumber was salvaged.
Though attempts of her been driven ashore and protected from scuttling were made, she was finally abandoned to the weather and foundered. The Metropolis remains are divided into a shallow wreck field in only 2.4 m/8 ft depth of water and a deeper section of the vessel in 36.5 m/120 ft depth of water. Her keelson is in the shallower section and constitutes also a popular snorkeling destination.
