  Explore Lake Superior’ s shipwrecks either by diving or viewing through the floor of a glass bottom boat. The trip takes about two hours, visits two different shipwreck sites, rock cliffs and caves, a historic lighthouse, and the exquisite beauty of Grand Island and Munising Bay. It allows a firsthand view of wrecks including a rare, fully intact, wooden sailing ship that was built before the Civil War and sits only a few feet from the surface of the lake.
The Seul Choix Point Lighthouse, pro- nounced “Sis-shwa” is located on US-2, 12 miles east of Manistique, and was once the center of a thriving fishing community. Seul Choix, French for “only choice” is a Michigan Historic Site and a Michigan Historic Site National Historic Landmark. The lighthouse has a rich history, and some even claim it is haunted. Visitors and workers have reported strange happenings, including the sound of someone (an old lighthouse keeper, perhaps?) climbing the steps.
