Diving the Wreck of the HMCS Saguenay Lunenburg in Nova Scotia

HMCS Saguenay was a St. Laurent-class destroyer that served in the Royal Canadian Navy and later the Canadian Forces from 1956-1990. Saguenay is 366 feet long and rests in 90′ of water, and currently leans on its port side. Scuttled in 1994 as an artificial reef off Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, she took 20 minutes to disappear beneath the waves, and landed upright in the sand. In May of 1995, she had taken on a 70-degree list to starboard. Each year she settles further onto her side.
