Sanilac Diving



Since the shipwreck discovery of the steamer “Regina” in the 1980’s, recreational diving has exploded along the Sanilac shoreline. There are over 14 different wrecks within an hour of Port Sanilac or Lexington.

Water clarity has dramatically increased in Lake Huron over the past 15 years. It is not uncommon to hear reports of 75 foot visibility. Deep and shallow water dives are equally rewarding.

With all the interest generated by the many wrecks of the Great Storm of 1913, the Sanilac Underwater Preserve was formed to protect these wrecks from treasure hunters and salvagers. Commercial dive charters operate out of both Lexington and Port Sanilac harbors. Compressed air and dive supplies are available in Port Sanilac. Several Detroit metropolitan area dive shops organize dive trips to the Thumb area.
