Shipwreck descriptions courtesy of Double Action Dive Charters:

We will be diving the Regina & the Sport.

Regina. Built in 1907, the 250 foot long steel freighter Regina fell prey to the "The Great Storm" of November 9, 1913 and went missing with all hands. She was undiscovered until 1986. Since she was located, she has become a very popular dive site. The ship rests upside down on the bottom in about 80 feet of water. The bottom of the hull can be reached at 25 feet. There is a 56 foot hole in the hull that permits entry to the hold area by qualified divers. Some of her cargo can be found scattered on the lake floor.

Sport. This small tugboat is a favorite among divers. She was built in 1873 and is important as the first steel tug on the Great Lakes. She had a long career as a working tug on the Lakes, but at 57 feet she was no match for a severe gale on December 13, 1920. Her steel hull rests upright with a slight list to starboard. The depth of water is 45 feet although the Sport rises up about 20 feet off the bottom. Divers find her intact with an abundance of tools and relics scattered about the wreck site. The Sport has received the distinction of being the first Michigan shipwreck with her own Michigan Historical Marker placed on her.
