Ship Canal – Benton Harbor, MI

This dive was made in the old ship canal where it meets the Paw Paw River and at the location of the old railroad bridge crossing now long gone.  Visibility in the shallows was maybe 3 feet until you touched the mucky bottom or got deeper than 3 feet. A light was not a lot of help when going deeper. Lots of concrete, old pilings, wooden wall, tree limbs and misc stuff. Plenty of fishing line but surprisingly few bottles and cans. Lots of metal parts, timbers and odd pieces on the shore line slope. There is a little current when out of the canal section but not enough to clear the muck plume. Water temp ~52F.
