    I really enjoy diving in Lake Michigan more than anywhere around here. The visibility is great and diving on the shipwrecks is like going back in time. It is an experience you can't understand until you have seen it!

    The shipwrecks are great. This past year the viz was great too. However, the viz in other years could really vary. But in general it is great diving.

    I would love to be able to dive the wrecks . I have been told its a great trip. Do you use a private boat or do you charter ?

    I generally use a charter through my LDS - Underwater Connection. Uwconnection.com is their web address.

    Jitka runs the charters that UW Connection sets up. I've seen a couple other boats out there - have to agree, while I haven't been out with them Jitka's got a pretty darn good thing going there! Had the chance to dive with another boat and passed because I knew I'd be let down based on what I was used to and what I had seen of the other boats out there.

    Has anyone gone out with Loves Park Scuba? My big issue was always the cost of the trip. Seems like Murphy's Law always interviened just when I was able to go. Can these dives be done wet since I quit dry diving ?
