Description

The  Islander was built in Rochester, NY in 1871.  She was utilized as both an excursion boat and a mail carrier.  In 1909 the Islander burned at the dock.  She is 125 feet in length.  This is a great 1st wreck dive as you can enter the water from shore and just go down the slope to the wreck.

This is a great dive, easy shore dive with parking at the waters edge, a gazebo and picnic tables to set up on. There is a ramp into the water with a hand rail. There is a lot of boat traffic in the area so don't just pop to the surface and do remember your floating dive flag.
