Arabia shipwreck

The Arabia is a three-masted barque and was built in Kingston, Ontario by George Thursten.
It lays very deep at a maximum depth of 37m (120ft) and because of the strong underwater current
it is only recommended for advanced divers under the direction of a dive master.
The ship sank off Echo Island in October 1884 and is in a good condition, specially the bow section with bowsprit, windlass and anchors.
The length of the wreck is 40.1m (131.6ft). It is number 14 on the dive site location map.
