Gov. Rick Snyder went underwater Tuesday to see Michigan history.
Snyder, who is a certified scuba diver, explored a Great Lakes shipwreck in Lake Huron off Alpena in about 18 feet of water.
He's visiting the Thunder Bay Marine Sanctuary in the northern Lower Peninsula.
“We have people coming from all across the world to visit and dive," Snyder said. "It is Pure Michigan."
He was aboard the USNSCC Training and Research Vessel YP-673 - “The Pride of Michigan.”
Along with the governor, there was 2 young sailors, all members of the Great Lakes Division of the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps.
“These sea cadets are fabulous because they are part of our future," Snyder said.
After the governor dries off, he plans to visit the Alcona County fair.
