What Lies Beneath : Canadian Shipwrecks of Lake Superior
Lake Superior is North
America’s inland ocean. It is also one of the world’s most dangerous lakes for navigation. At last count, 445 ships of all sizes and configurations have wrecked on Lake Superior. This program explores the largely undocumented stories of many of the ships that wrecked in Canadian waters and the American island of Isle Royale, just a short distance from Thunder Bay – passenger liners, war ships, freighters, ghost ships, yachts, fishing boats and tugs. Dive into this program – it will leave you intrigued!
