Governor Rick Snyder Scuba Dives For Tourism

Posted: Updated:

ALPENA, Mich. (WLNS) - Michigan Governor Rick Snyder is going to great lengths to push Michigan's tourism industry, or should we say, "Great Depths."

Certified diver Governor Snyder scuba dove into Lake Huron to explore a shipwreck in the Thunder Bay Marine Sanctuary. There are many shipwrecks in the area. Snyder explored Monohansett, a wooden carrier built in 1872 that was used to transport coal. It caught fire and sank in 18 feet of water in 1907. 

Snyder wants to promote unique "Pure Michigan" travel opportunities and highlight the work of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet program.

This trip is part of Snyder's tour of the UP and northern Michigan.
