Comments Diving the shipwerecks around Isle Royale is a lot of fun for those with drysuits and a tolerance for cold water diving.

Isle Royale, a wilderness preserve, and is primarily known as a hiking, backpacking, kayaking, and fishing destination. Also of interest is the ongoing moose/wolf study.

Captain Ryan who owns and operates the Superior Diver knows his way around the island and the shipwrecks. He is a great cook and also serves as a dive guide when required.

Accommodations are basic, bring your own sleeping bag, but comfortable for 4 to 6 divers.

An on board compressor provides air or nitrox fills to 3000 + psi
