Tunstall Wreck Dive – Covehead, Prince Edward Island

0

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.
