Most northerly shipwreck

Last updated: October 1, 2017 at 2:04 am

HMS Breadalbane was a British barque crushed by ice south of Beechey Island (Nunavut, Canada) in August 1853. It was explored using the WASP manned-diving suit and an ROV during an expedition led by Canadian diver and explorer Dr. Joe MacInnis in 1983. The wreck discovered by Dr. MacInnis at a depth of 100 m (328 ft) in 1980 is now a National Historic Site of Canada.
