Endurance: Shackleton’s lost ship is found in Antarctic!
Super cool, beautifully preserved ship the Endurance was found in The Wendell Sea.
Read the article and see the video HERE. The ship was trapped in sea ice for a long time before being crushed and finally sinking. The crew made their getaway by walking across the ice and small boats.
I think it’s a very interesting article and beautiful ship. 10,000 feet is too deep and Antarctica is too cold for me to dive though. Or else I would!
Yesterday I loaded up the kayak and went looking for the wreck I saw from the air. At first I didn’t think I’d find it, but after I got out to the wrong buoys, I saw the right one. It was a big wrecked sailboat.
After that I paddled out to the inside of the reef, very close to the wrecks at Wreck of The Ten Sail, the site where a sailing fleet wrecked a couple hundred years ago. The wreck you see here is NOT from those sailing ships.
It was a great day!
Today is the last day of my vacation, tomorrow it’s back to work. 🙁
