Scuba Diving - Wreck of the Christina Nilsson

As Kathy and I slid the boat off the trailer at the town launch in Bailey’s Harbor the wind was just starting to pick up. Other than that, it was a beautiful and sunny early August afternoon. We loaded our dive gear into the boat and headed out to the wreck of the Christina Nilsson on the northeast side of Baileys Harbor. The Christina Nilsson was a three-masted, 140-foot wooden schooner that ran aground and sank in 1884. She now lies in about 15-20 feet of water just off shore near the old Baileys Harbor lighthouse.
