The Conception Bay Whaling Wrecks
The Conception Bay Whalers have been an excellent shore dive since 1964. It is believed that these Whale Catchers were abandoned at the close of the whaling industry in Newfoundland. Just one mile off shore in Conception Harbour there rests the remains of two more Whale Catchers, the SS SPOSA and the SS SOIKA. They range in length from 110’ to 130 feet with a beam of approximately 30 feet. Visibility in the winter and early spring ranges from 100’ down to 30’. There is a harpoon gun mounted on one of the ships. A propeller is still on the SS Southern Foam. Fantastic photo/video opportunities await you.
