Beyond the Underworld

 

The Great Lakes of the USA and Canada can be considered the finest lake diving in the world, due to the lakes being fresh water all of the wooden wrecks here are preserved by the waters.
There are many old wrecks to explore with some dating back to the 1800s. The depths the lakes can reach go to beyond 200 meters, this makes them excellent sites for technical divers wanting to train and explore the depths. Viewed from above the Great Lakes resemble a giant palm tree swaying in the wind.

 

Many Americans and Canadian people are attracted to the sparkling waters, central location and appeal that fresh-water has. Diving is only one of the reasons for the boat traffic on it's waters. Commercial boat-traffic, pleasure boaters and wilderness preserve rangers make up many of the others.
The climate here is temperate-warm in the summer but can reach freezing sub-arctic conditions in the winter.
