Dive into the depths of maritime lore with the 'Uncover the Shipwreck Sagas' self-guided audio tour. It’s crafted for those fascinated by historical shipwrecks, nautical adventures, and coastal wonders. Led by the storytelling of author Barbara Joosse and her brother, sailor Don Monnot, this tour is a captivating journey for anyone interested in Lake Michigan's seafaring history and the shipwrecks that rest along Port Washington’s marina. The route begins at the iconic 1860 Light Station, hosted by the Port Washington Historical Society, and leads you along the scenic waterfront, ending at the Northerner Overlook. You'll tread where maritime history was made, with tales of storms, bravery, and survival that have left their mark beneath the waves. Stops include Harborview Lane, Heart of the Harbor, and the gripping stories at Rotary Park’s lookout. The experience culminates at the final stop, the Northerner Overlook, where the timber-laden schooner’s story reveals the perilous nature of 19th-century lake navigation. When you complete this tour, you won't just have visited a charming marina; you’ll have journeyed through time, unraveling the mysteries and human stories that lie in Port Washington’s infamous shipwreck graveyard.
