Shipwrecks of Sleeping Bear Featured at ISEA Seminar Tuesday

Shipwrecks Off Sleeping Bear Point

Inland Seas Education Association is excited to present Ross Richardson, author, historian, shipwreck hunter and diver as the June Great Lakes Seminar Series presenter. Richardson will explore the legend and history of shipwrecks, including three recently located, uncharted wreck sites off Sleeping Bear Point.

Sleeping Bear Point is in the heart of the Manitou Passage, one of the deadliest stretches of water in the Great Lakes. This area was a threat to any sailing vessel who dared venture between her and the islands just offshore. There lies a graveyard of shipwrecks in the sand beneath Sleeping Bear Point’s treacherous waters, which is where we will go for this seminar.

100 Dame St. Suttons Bay

When: Tuesday June 11th at 7:00pm
