Caisson
Caisson is a non-shipwreck dive from 100ft to 150ft.  This can be a recreational dive within 130ft.  The history of this caisson is unknown.  In geotechnical engineering, a caisson is a watertight retaining structure used, for example, to work on the foundations of a bridge pier, for the construction of a concrete dam, or for the repair of ships. Caissons are constructed in such a way that the water can be pumped out, keeping the work environment dry.

Milwaukee Carferry
A 318 foot steel railroad car ferry was loaded with 27 box cars and 52 passengers. This is a popular dive destination as there are plenty of things to explore such as railcars, cars, or bath tubs. Penetration is possible for the trained and experienced.

Advanced recreational dive between 90ft to 130ft and it can be technical for divers trained in decompression diving.  You can choose to do two recreational dives or one long tech dive.  Read more…
