City of Cleveland - Tobermory

Max Depth 20 ft

The City of Cleveland was a 255ft long 4 masted wooden steamer that was built (surprise!) in Cleveland in 1882. She ran aground and sunk in the snowstorm in 1901 near Fitzwilliam island. This wreck is a long way out of Tobermory and does not see a lot of visitors but she is a total delight to dive. One of the dive shops describes her as Photographers Paradise and they are correct. Despite a century underwater, there is so much that still survives on the wreck, the engine, the boilers, the propeller, the huge rudder, the driveshaft and many many small objects. The decks are collapsed making it possible to study her construction details for marine archaeologists among us. She would be appropriate for snorkellers as well.
