Kingston shipwrecks are the focus of this video. Four wrecks are portrayed here in the area of Kingston, Ontario.
The first one of the Kingston Shipwrecks is the Munson, a dredge barge that sank in 110 feet of water in 1890. The upper deck has an assortment of pottery, dishes and an oiler. Also in this area is an early-era electric generator dated 1883. The large shovel lays on the bottom to inspect. It tends to be a dark dive always.
The second wreck in this video is the wooden paddle wheeler, Comet. The Comet lays in 85 feet of water and sank in 1861. The two large paddlewheels still stand proud on the lake bottom. The wreck site is located 2 miles from Nine Mile Point.
Third up in this video is a recently discovered shipwreck called the Eureka. Eureka sank in 118 feet of water. All the crew survived the sinking during the middle of the night on Nov 1, 1883, just off Pigeon Island. This proved to be a dark dive in the fall.
The fourth wreck in the video is the George A. Marsh schooner that lays in 85 feet of water. The Marsh was en route from Sodus, NY to Kingston when it sank on Aug 8, 1917. There was a 12 person loss of life from the sinking with two people that survived. At this depth we were graced with available light.
Many thanks to Pat Coyne of Pat’s Dive Charters for taking us to these wrecks and his knowledge of the many shipwrecks in the Kingston area.
