Nor­man

Sport Diver - - 100 Best Dice Sites -

The Nor­man is one of Lake Huron’s most mind­blow­ing ship­wrecks. This bulk freighter sank in a col­li­sion in 1895 that al­most split the 296-foot ship in half. To­day it sits in more than 200 feet of wa­ter, with the bow up­right and one an­chor de­ployed. As you swim aft you’ll pass the wheel­house with the dou­ble wheel still in­side, and just be­yond that a life boat with the oars still in place. Divers can swim through sev­eral open cargo holds be­fore mak­ing it to the col­li­sion point near the en­gine room, where the ship ap­pears to be snapped in half. The pro­pel­ler is still in place, and the en­gine room still has the tele­graph in­side. This site is a pre­served gem and a fa­vorite for Great Lakes divers. —Becky Ka­gan Schott
