Diving the Wreck of the Steamer Florida in Lake Huron off Presque Isle, Michigan

In a dense fog, at about 9:00 AM on May 20, 1899, the 270-foot steamer Florida was nearly cut in half by the George W. Roby. The ship is sitting upright approximately 200 feet below the surface of Lake Huron, off Presque Isle, Michigan.  The video below, produced by Michael C. Barnette gives us a look at the remarkably well preserved wreck.
