An unidentified trawler shipwreck rests on Stellwagen Bank in 105-110 feet of water. The trawler is broken into four pieces; its pilothouse, hull, stern, and net reel. Smaller hull fragments surround the site. As the shipwreck sits on a mostly featureless sand bottom, it attracts schools of cod and pollock that hide within its structure. The identity of this trawler has not been determined and the sanctuary is seeking help from anyone who might know its name. The trawler lies within the Outbound Lane of the Port of Bostons Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS). Vessel operators should follow all regulations pertaining to the safe operation of vessels in a TSS.

Dive the wreck of the HMAS Canberra -- Victoria's first artificial reef created for the sole purpose of diving. Join thousands of curious divers who have already flocked to the sunken frigate since it's opening on the 5th of December 2009. Take a boat ride from Portsea or Queenscliff, then drop 28 metres below the waves of Bass Strait to explore the flight decks, the bridge, engine rooms and galley.

How to get there
The site is a 20--25 minute boat ride from Portsea (Mornington Peninsula) and Queenscliff (Bellarine Peninsula). To gain access divers must either book a dive tour with a licensed tour operator or book a slot on the public mooring through Parks Victoria. There are four moorings and the site can accommodate approximately 60 divers at any one time.

Dive bookings will give divers exclusive use of a mooring for two hours at a cost of $30 per boat regardless of the number of divers on board. The money raised will contribute some of the cost to manage the site.

Skill requirements
The site has been established specifically for diving and snorkelling and access is restricted to visitors participating in these activities only.

Divers wishing to access the site must hold a current and industry recognised entry--level qualification (equivalent to Australian Standard AS4005.1) with appropriate experience for the dive being undertaken. 01:09

Diving Wreck of Umbria (Part 1 of 3: Wreck overview)

The Umbria is 150-meters long freighter, built in Hamburg in 1912 and originally known as the Bahia Blanca. It was used during World War I as a freighter and was sold to the Italians in 1935 to be used as a cargo and troopship. On its final voyage in 1940 it was operated by Italians who were transporting over 350,000 bombs amongst other war supplies. The British stopped the Umbria at Port Sudan during the Second World War, as it was clear that Italians were carrying weapons for the enemy. The Umbria was ordered to be handed over, but rather than let this happen the Italians scuttled their own ship. The Umbria sank with its cargo, and today the wreck lies on its Port side at a 60 degree angle at a depth range of 5 -- 36 meters. The Umbria can be ranked as a one of the best wreck dive sites in the world. 13:13
