Ship Type: 4 masted wooden steamer
Lifespan: Launched 1882 (Cleveland, OH), Sunk September 1901
Location: 18 miles north of Tobermory, Ontario
GPS: N45.28.222 W081.50.723
This wreck lies in approximately 30 ft of water just off the west shore of
Fitzwilliam Island, south of Manitoulin Island. In September 1901, it ran
aground during a snowstorm while carrying a load of iron ore. The wreck is
spread out over a fairly wide area, with a number of key features intact,
including a large propeller, the boilers, and rudder.
The wreck is not dove quite as often as many of the other wrecks in Tobermory as
it is about a 18 mile ride out to the wreck through open water, so conditions
must be right. Here are some pictures from our dive.
