  • Description:

    Built as a huge four masted schooner, the Mary E McLachlan is one of the finest examples of a wreck full of interesting things to see. Visibility is often reduced due to the outflows from two rivers but a trip to this vessel is a local must do. There was no loss of life when the ship foundered.
