The Catamount Shipwreck
New York and Jersey's (Wreck Valley)
Historical and current New York and New Jersey Shipwreck Information and images for scuba
divers and fisherman.
wreck of the Catamount is in reality an unidentified shipwreck. Records do
indicate that a vessel named Catamount was sunk in the area during WWII but it
is highly doubtful that this is the wreck divers explore today. The wreck known
as Catamount sits in 130 feet of water and appears to be a prohibition era rum
runner. Divers can still find the remains of her illegal boot leg cargo by
digging through her remains.
The wrecks engine provide the highest relief.
Best digging is off the wrecks port side.
