5 shipwrecks discovered in Lake Michigan

CROSS VILLAGE, Mich. – A Michigan shipwreck diver says he has discovered a cluster of wrecks in northern Lake Michigan.

Ross Richardson of Lake Ann said he uncovered the wrecks this summer in the waters around the small Island of Skillagalee, located between Beaver Island and the northern Lower Peninsula community of Cross Village, the Grand Rapids Press reported. An extensive reef system about four feet under the water was responsible for many shipwrecks in the area before advanced navigation.

“I was looking for wrecks that haven’t been discovered and have a decent last known position,” said Richardson, who’s originally from Grand Rapids. “This is kind of the last place in Lake Michigan where there’s a concentration of wrecks that are undiscovered, but somewhat attainable.”
