Collision Course:
Three Whitefishbay Shipwrecks
Lake Superior has claimed over five hundred vessels in its illustrious maritime history. Some of the most intriguing of these shipwrecks have occurred around the Whitefish Bay area.
 
Huge commercial vessels have battled the elements on the lake for over a century, with many falling victim to vicious storms and monstrous waves, others, such as the three ships examined on this video, were sunk after terrible collisions on the open water.
 
Now Southport Video takes you to the sites of three storied shipwrecks: The John M. Osborne, an 891-ton wooden steam barge that collided with a passenger ship, the Alberta in 1884. The Vienna, a 191-foot wooden steamer that inexplicably collided with the Nipigon in 1892. The John B. Cowle, an enormous coal freighter that was rammed by the Isaac M. Scott in 1909. Rare photos, illustrations expert testimonials and underwater footage not only give you the history of these fabled ships; they actually take you on board the ships in their underwater graves.
