The steamship Conestoga (ie SS Conestoga) was a combined passenger/cargo carrying vessel, built in 1878 in Cleveland Ohio. She was sold to a Canadian company in 1919. On 22 May, 1922, she caught fire when loaded with a cargo of wheat and sank where she lies today.

Lots of other divers and fish on this wreck. Be careful for passing boats and freighters.
The wreck is located about 40 feet from shore, very easy to swim, slight current, nothing to worry about or can't work with. Can drive right up to the wreck, easy access to the shore from vehicle and walk right in.
Very nice dive, can't wait to go back.
