Lake Erie contains approximately 1700 shipwrecks and 50 of them are in the waters surrounding Kelleys Island. Explore them while snorkeling and diving from our shoreline. One of the best things about diving and snorkeling is seeing something new on every outing. Of course, diving on shipwrecks is a growing interest of many Lake Erie SCUBA divers. The cool fresh lake water has preserved shipwrecks that would have disappeared long ago in a salt water environment. Note: There is no SCUBA provider on the island, the closest dive shops are in Port Clinton and Sandusky.
