Mishaps and Misadventures


British Columbia's coastline is without a doubt a rugged one. Our rocky cliffs, shallow shorelines, and stormy winter seasons all make for difficult passage. This has resulted in hundreds of shipwrecks along our coast. This display features stunning photos from the Maritime Musem of BC's collection of ships in distress and the stories behind them. Luckily, there is no human tragedy in any of these stories! Only weird circumstances that vessels have been unforuante enough to find themselves in.
