Schooner American Union.

Ships that wreck in shallow water tend to break apart due to the force of wind, waves, and ice. Many wrecks dot the shoreline of Thunder Bay, providing great opportunities for snorkeling, kayaking, and recreational diving. Pictured here is the schooner American Union. These wrecks make for great snorkel adventures. Image courtesy of Thunder Bay 2010 Expedition, NOAA-OER.
