1999 Vizcaya Photos I

All images on this page 1999 by Christina Young.

Welcome to New Jersey's newest dive boat for deep exploration, the Depth Charge!  The Depth Charge is a 42-foot Provincial, custom built to salvage the RMS Republic and other cool wrecks!

The following pictures (all images from video) are from the voyage of the Depth Charge to the 287- foot long Spanish steamer Vizcaya, Sunday, December 5, 1999.  The Vizcaya sank in 1890 in a collision with the schooner Cornelius Hargraves, six miles east of Barnegat Inlet, New Jersey.
