This is another really easy dive just down some !slippery! stairs and slide into the water and drop down and kick out 50 yards. The wreck has been down there since about 1870 so much of it is sunk into the sand but still plenty of parts to look at in a relaxed shallow 25 feet of water. You can see parts of the boilers of this former sailing steam ship and oddly several tons of rock ballast still in her hull. There is even sill some debris from its cargo such as old glass jars.
