Jay Hanson from Superior Scuba Charters and North Shore Scenic Cruises has helped the GLSPS on many projects. Jay has many years of experience as a Captain, dive shop owner, dive instructor and commercial diver.

Jay has taken a different path for the past few years and his scuba charters are no longer available. However, in 2012, Jay purchased the Wenonah which was previously used to transport people from Grand Portage, MN to Isle Royale, MI. He now offers day cruises on the North Shore of Lake Superior and is docked at the Silver Bay, MN Marina.

If you are interested in booking a day charter cruise on the North Shore of Lake Superior, please click on the logo above for information on joining a north shore day cruise.

GLSPS Announces
 
The Documentation, Photo and Video Practice Project
(On the SP Ely)
August 16 - 17, 2014
 
On this project all participants will have a chance to learn Monitoring procedures, practice underwater documentation skills and searching .  We can also review other procedures we use in stabilizing underwater shipwrecks.  We also review first aid procedures, boat and dive briefings, properly using check lists and following the protocol (S.O.P.) the GLSPS has established and perform the proper techniques to help preserve underwater shipwrecks.
 
One of the other objectives of the GLSPS is to have new members get involved on projects (or old members that have never joined us on a project) and feel welcome to register for future projects.  We don't want members to confuse us as a good old boys club.  We encourage people to join us and participate in the projects.  As always you need to be a member to participate, supply your own gear, know how to use it, and be qualified for this level of SCUBA diving. Max depth in this area is about 40 feet.
