Northener Shipwreck Port Washington (Photo taken by Dirk Wilhelm)
I got back up at the usual time on a hot humid Saturday morning and made my way through the gauntlet of drunk drivers and cops with a suspicious attitude regarding any driver on the highway going 5-10 miles over the speed limit. I made up to Port Washington and got on the dive boat so we could go off and visit the famous dive site the Northerner.

This wreck is at 120-130ft to the dirt but is pretty much in-tact and still has her lumber cargo in the haul.  We dove on a clear day and got down to see the wreck which was in crystal clear water.

Our dive was a recreational dive, so our bottom time was limited to our AL80 but we had a fantastic dive without any incident.

The Following wreck is the wreck of the Brig Mahoning.  She was in 60ft. of water which was a good second dive for us but it was rather broken up

A large Burbot was slithering through the wreck which was interesting to see.

Overall the wrecks were fantastic to dive and I am glad I got to dive these wrecks
