This tour company uses glass bottom boats to allow visitors to gape at the watery remains of sunken ships from past eras. The two-hour narrated tour splashes across Lake Superior's Alger Water Preserve and pauses over three different shipwrecks. The Bermuda, a wooden schooner from the 1880s, is completely intact and postures just 12 feet below the lake's surface. There is also The Michael Groh, a steam barge that lost its buoyancy in 1867. This tour, which is both fascinating and creepy in a weird way, also passes the East Channel Lighthouse, which is odd because it is one of the few existing lighthouses constructed of wood. Admission: USD22 adults; USD9 children; under five years old free.
