The Shangrala Shipwreck  New York and New Jersey's (Wreck Valley)
Historical and current New York and New Jersey Shipwreck Information and images for scuba divers and fisherman.

The Shangrala is a small unidentified wood wreck which sits in 108 feet of water 7 miles out of Moriches Inlet. The wreck is mostly buried with nothing recognizable except wooden ribs. The highest relief is found on the East end of the wreck where the ribs stick up a good five feet. I visited this wreck for the first time in June of 1996. We found excellent visibility and an abundant supply of lobsters. I did not see any rigging, masts or any other machinery that would help to determine what type of vessel she was. My guess would be an old schooner or most likely a schooner barge.
