NORTHERN PACIFIC

The Northern Pacific was sunk due to fire on February 8, 1922. The vessel turned turtle and went down in 150 feet of water.

According to diver Dave Keller, one side of this sunken liner is smooth while the other is spread out. Hundreds of portholes were exposed, though most upside-down.

Remember penetration into any shipwreck should only be done by those with proper training, experience and wreck diving equipment. Scuba equipment like powerful dive lights, navigation reels, dive knives as well as redundant air supply like a pony bottle or doubles are standard gear for wreck divers.
