It also provides maps and charts of the area, and detailed information on locating and diving on wrecks.

New England Shipwrecks

The waters along the New England coast are beautiful but treacherous. Over the years, rocky shoals, storms and fog have claimed many vessels. Some are sunk in deep water, while others can be found near shore and even on the beaches. Some ships didn't even have to sink to become wrecks. The schooners Hesper and Luther Little (below), rotted away at a wharf in Wiscasset, Maine.
