The sea has always been a cruel mistress to those who choose to spend their lives navigating the deep blue waters, searching for gold, adventure, enemies, or simply fishing to make a living. The world has lost an uncountable number of ships throughout the centuries since we began exploring the oceans, and scientists and divers have begun diving into the depths in order to revive those lost pieces of history. Here are ten shipwrecks only those brave enough will explore.
Known simply as the “Russian Wreck,” this mysterious ship was only discovered in 1988 under 24 meters worth of water. Some believe it was a Russian fishing trawler that went missing, but electronic equipment on the ship suggests it was a communication vessel for the country.
The Doty is buried deep in the waters of Lake Michigan in Milwaukee. A horrible storm caused the ship to capsize and sink in 1898, and she was just discovered by divers in 2010 after having been missing for 115 years.
