Tunstall Wreck Dive – Covehead, Prince Edward Island

The steamer, Tunstall, owned by the Black Diamond Line, was carrying coal from Pictou, Nova Scotia, to Montreal, Quebec, when it sank after being crushed in the ice off Covehead. The Tunstall was built in 1879 and sank on May 11, 1884.  All the men aboard the Tunstall made it safely ashore and the wreck is now a popular site in Prince Edward Island for scuba divers.

I recently had a great time photographing the wrecks of Subic Bay on the west coast of Luzon, in the north of the Philippines. The bay used to be the location of a US naval base, and it has wrecks from the Spanish-American war, from WWII, and scuttled American ships and planes from the area afterwards. It’s quite a playground for the wreck-diving aficionado and underwater photographer.

It is the early summer of 1943 and the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan is well into its fourth year of existence.
