door county, wisconsin(lake michigan) is about an hour north of green is full of craft shops and not a mcdonalds or pizza hut in
sight!!the motel was neat and clean and very diver only
complaint is the tv's only had about three channels and no hbo!!boo hoo!i
missed the soprano's!! the dive operation is small but very nice, jim ,one
of the owners is padi instructor #44.he made you feel as if you'd known him
for years, very nice guy! the dive boat is a former navy pbr(patrol boat,
river for you non viet nam types) it holds 6-9 divers with only
complaint was the stern ladder was abit tricky, but the staff were fast to
assist.all entries were made via either giant strides or backward rolls
from the sides.the staff were always quick to help with gear, or
grannylines to the morings.we dove two wrecks, the e.r.williams,sunk in
1892, a 250ft intact, upright wooden schooner in 102ft of water..masts
intact, anchors, etc..the second was the roan barge sunk in 1956,a huge
crane on a barge that sunk in about 112ft of water.its upside down but can
be penetrated if trained.saw lots of burbots in the 2-4 ft range..many
other wrecks to dive but never enough time.the motel also has a huge
multi-bedroom(4) suite for groups..also a restaurant with decent sitdown
type meals from the menu..only wine and beer available if you're a
drinker..nice maritime museum within walking distance..water temp was near
80 degrees and the water calm.we dove drysuits but others were in 7mm
wetsuits..we dove nitrox but air would have been fine..the cost for two
dives was $75.00 per diver and for an addtional five bucks they had a huge,
tasty sandwich (that you ordered with signing up) in the cooler for
you.bottled water was free as was use of the large iced down cooler..ample
area below decks to change clothes, etc..head and o2 on board also!you
bring all your own gear including tanks(filled) and weights.the dive area
in general is known as "death's door" because of all the
shipwrecks over the years!!very scenic!
