This schooner was lost in the same 1887 storm that sank the Havana. She was carrying iron ore and stone when driven ashore by the storm. The storm broke her into pieces within a matter of hours and only 1 of the 7 crew was able to survive.
Over the years the ship has continued to be driven ashore and is now a good dive from the shoreline.
The wreckage is broken up and scattered along the water’s edge. Shifting sand covers and reveals the wreckage. Depth is less than 20 feet and visibility can be limited but this is a good wreck to snorkel.
