Fourth Element has added seven new virtual wreck tours to its impressive 3D library.

The Cornish dive wear manufacturer’s latest series features wrecks of the Great Lakes, USA.

The Thunder Bay Wrecks project is a collaboration with NOAA – the US government’s National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.

Thunder Bay is part of Lake Huron in the Great Lakes and is home to hundreds of shipwrecks, from wooden schooners to steel hulled steamers.

Since the lakes are fresh water (and cold), the lost vessels are extremely well preserved and a wreck diver’s paradise.

The best shipwrecks of Thunder Bay have been archeologically mapped by NOAA divers.

Now Fourth Element has turned this data into seven new interactive 3D wreck tours.

They join the growing Fourth Element catalogue, alongside such famous names as the Thistlegorm, Truk Lagoon, and even our very own James Eagan Layne.
