Blockade Runner Wreck

Like many unfortunate vessels, the Montana suffered a wreck in Bermuda's treacherous shallow waters during the 19th century. The ship served as a blockade runner during the American Civil War, but wrecked on a shallow reef in 1863 when it was caught in a severe winter storm.

Many divers come to visit the wreckage today, which lies scattered in 30 ft of water. The ship's bow remains relatively intact, but it's heavily strewn with coral. If you're looking for a remarkable dive site, the sunken Montana is something to check out.
