Princess Sophia Underway

 

On October 25, 1918 the Canadian Pacific steamer Princess Sophia was lost along with 344 passengers and crew on Vanderbilt Reef in Lynn Canal Alaska. This proved to be the worst Shipwreck disaster on the West Coast and is often called the Titanic of the West. In the spring of 2018 Jacque Marc the UASBC Explorations Director had the opportunity to visit Vanderbilt Reef and dive  this tragic wreck. He will recount the story on how Sophia was lost and will share what it is like to dive her today on her 100th anniversary.

Please be at the meeting 7:00 PM shart as the doors will be closed after that time
