The PEI SCUBA Divers group is excited to announce the discovery of a new shipwreck in PEI waters.
The newly discovered wreck sits in roughly 70-75 feet of water about 7 miles from shore in the Northumberland Strait. Four divers from the group were out for diving for scallops last month and checked out an anomaly captain Duck MacDonald had spotted on the bottom of the Strait years ago while fishing in the area. The divers, Laura Brake, Kelly Campbell, Conrad Kippenhuk and Arjan Stutvoet explored the spot and discovered wreckage, steel and wooden structures and the outline of a ship’s hull. The wreck is unique for PEI that it is a 3D structure and is sitting upright on the bottom of the Strait.
