For centuries the Great Lakes have engulfed thousands of ships and 2,000 of those ships have been found at the bottom of of our lakes.

The most famous of which is probably the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Tony Gramer, an award winning underwater photographer, knows of other famous ships that have been swallowed up by the Great Lakes. 

He's presenting the story behind one of those ships this weekend at the 32nd Great Lakes Shipwreck Festival. It's happening this weekend at Washtenaw Community College.

We spoke with Tony about what it is  like to dives in the Great Lakes and why people are so passionate about shipwreck discovery & exploration.
