City of Cleveland

The City of Cleveland was destined for Midland with a cargo of iron ore when it was forced off course by a Southwest gale. This wreck is a photographers delight. The bottom of the hull is intact from stern to bow but the deck and sides have collapsed on top of it. The massive steam engine, boilers and 12' propeller are the most impressive sites on the wreck. There are many small pieces of debris (such as pottery shards) buried in the sand and silt beside the wreck. This wreck is a long way out of Tobermory but well worth the trip. It is usually combined with the San Jacinto and one other(TBA) as a three tank all day trip.
