This two masted schooner sank on the night of Sept. 30, 1880 near False Duck Island, taking the lives of the captain & crew. She rests in 100' of water near one of the Pennicons, sitting upright at the base of a shoal. This is a stunningly gorgeous wreck.
Intact, much of her equipment remains on board eg. deadeyes, wheel, anchor, blocks.
Deep enough to be cold and moderately dark, these are not things that should keep you from diving on her. Despite being on the bottom for nearly 120 years there are still artifacts to see on this wreck that would be almost unheard of anywhere in the world but in Canada. Thanks to the effort of groups like SOS (Save Ontario Shipwrecks) and POW (Preserve Our Wrecks) things have actually been returned to the wrecks they were taken from.
Descending the mooring line you will be greeted with a saucer as soon as you hit the deck. It's not a broken fraction of its former self, it is the complete, genuine article. Keep searching and you will find the sole of a shoe and iron next to it, a large anchor, masts on the starboard side in impecable shape, gorgeous ship's wheel still in position, and more.
