Tag Archives: Shipwreck


On one zodiac cruise in Wilhelmina Bay, we saw a shipwreck from 1915. It was a whaling ship full of blubber. One nigh during a crew celebration, the ship caught fire. Being full of blubber it burned through pretty quickly. The steel and iron melted and changed shape. We drove the zodiac right over part of it. It was rather creepy in some ways.
