French Divers Explore Potential Site of Le Griffon Shipwreck

The temperatures on the surface hovered in the high 50’s above the wreck site today. Only about 10 degrees warmer than the Lake Michigan soup surrounding the site.

Today the French archaeologists entered the water for the first time since the site’s discovery in 2001 and I was there to film the encounter.

More to come on their first impressions.
