Historical and current New York and New England Shipwreck Information and images for scuba divers and fisherman.

The 1112 ton side wheel steamer Atlantic was built in New York in 1846. She was sunk on November27, 1846. She was en-route from New London to New York. During her voyage the Atlantic lost power. Her captain ordered her anchors dropped. Unfortunately, they did not hold the big steamer against increasing seas. The Atlantic finally drifted into the rocks by North Hill. Over 40 people lost their lives in the tragedy. This wreck is now scattered, low lying and mostly buried. Her remains sit in about 20 feet of water.
