HMS St. Lawrence

Trail Information

Just off the old Morton Brewery in Kingston is one of the most famous ships of the War of 1812. In only 30' of water at the most is her remains. When first launched she gave a scare to the Americans just at the site of her. After the war and the Bagot agreement she became a storage facility for the Morton Brewery where she sank and was forgotten about. The site was named a National Historic Site of Canada in 2015, so do not remove artifacts.

Directions

Entry is done at the Domino Theatre. Swim north east parallel to shore. Reaching 25' you will come to what were once docks. Swimming around, debris is found; mess kits, parts of vases. At 8-10' into the shallow bay, the ships remains are found.
