Lake Huron

City of Grand Rapids - Tobermory

Max Depth 9 ft

City of Grand Rapids caught fire while docked at Little Tub Harbor. Customary treatment for the burning ship was to be towed out into the open lake. After the City of Grand Rapids was towed out, the winds blew her, still burning, into a Big Tub harbor where she eventually burned to the waterline and settled in very shallow water. So shallow that parts of her stick out in the air.

As my aerial image below shows, she is very close to Sweepstakes and thus those two wrecks are usually done together. She is an excellent snorkelling site, but too shallow for diving.
