About WMUP

The West Michigan Underwater Preserve covers about 345 square miles, and extends along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan from a point between Grand Haven and Holland north to the northern boundary of Ludington State Park. Its waters adjoin the West Michigan lakeshore communities of Grand Haven, Muskegon, Whitehall, Pentwater and Ludington.

The preserve is home to several ships lost in storms on Lake Michigan, as well as other underwater structures and natural features. Read more about Lake Michigan shipwrecks in the West Michigan Underwater Preserve.
