Video: Why we dive on Great Lakes shipwrecks

Mar 28, 2018

What's it like to dive for a shipwreck in Lake Erie?

David VanZandt knows.  He's the director and chief archeologist for Cleveland Underwater Explorers (CLUE), a group that's discovers shipwrecks in Lake Erie. 

A couple of CLUE members discovered the Margaret Olwill, an 1899 wreck found off the coast of Lorain, Ohio.

VanZandt spoke on WVIZ/PBS program Ideas with Great Lakes Today reporter Elizabeth Miller about shipwrecks and the Olwill.
