The Story Of "Black Friday" - The Worst Storm On The Great Lakes.

Divers and crew of Discovery Dive Charters & Tours, Inc. have gone to the shipwrecks of Lake Erie. Their goal is to gather video footage, relevant dive information, and data for the production of Film Documentaries to feature the shipwreck of Lake Erie's Central Basin.

Underwater Research supplies the vessels, equipment, electronics, and submersible video gear, to locate and film these historic shipwrecks. The divers and crew of Discovery bring raw footage back to port to catalog and store for future use in making of the documentaries.

Underwater Research has taken parts of raw footage and other segments of film relevant to the subject to produce the finished video section. Information gathered from numerous historical archives, newspapers, books and divers accounts of exploration to create the audio file of the story. And music tastefully selected for background and dramatic scenes to create the other half of the audio file. All audio and video with small special effects come together to create our Documentaries on the Shipwrecks of Lake Erie.

These Documentary Films are available for viewing at our Cleveland Headquarters
