VIDEO: This ship’s a complete wreck

Publish date:

On a foggy September morning 94 years ago, the SS Cuba struck a reef and sank off the California coast. Don’t worry – all aboard survived and were rescued, but the ship was not so lucky.

Today the ship is slowly being consumed by the ocean. Her outer skeleton and engine parts have disappeared and what remains is covered by marine growth.

There are at least 100 documented wrecks in the region where the SS Cuba sank. These wrecks provide habitats that support marine life, including giant black sea bass and California spiny lobster.
