The Thames 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 iron hulled tugboat Thames was 55 feet long. In 1973 the Thames was towing a barge off Horton Point. The tug started to leak and although her crew tried desperately to save the ship all efforts were in vane. Her crew jumped onto the barge in tow and anchored themselves while waiting for the Coast Guard. They then watch as the Thames slipped beneath the sea.

Today the wreck of the Thames sits in 130 feet of water. She was wire dragged clear to a depth of 75 feet so as not to cause a hazard to navigation.
