The Immaculata Shipwreck
New York and New Jersey's (Wreck Valley)
Historical and current New York and New Jersey Shipwreck Information and images for scuba
divers and fisherman.
The Immaculata lies in 90 to 100 feet of water, 18 miles south of
Jones Inlet. Said to be three old garbage barges sunk in the 1920s,
this wreck, or wrecks, contains many old bottles buried in and
around her broken remains.
When I first dove this wreck, I found small pieces of doll house
furniture made of china and some ceramic bottles. Today, years
later, the wreck is still producing artifacts for divers who explore
her scattered ribs. There is also a large fluted anchor in an area
of the wreck that appears to be the bow section. The bottom
composition is very silty, so divers should make a conscious effort
not to stir it up. In my time spent on the bottom I have only seen
three sets of ribs which indicate a single schooner wreck.
