THE THREE PIECE WRECK - MILFORD CONNECTICUT

We went to investigate a site in Milford CT. When we got to the bottom it was a bit puzzling. Multiple pieces of fiberglass and lobster traps scattered about the bottom. We think a small boat was scuttled and a lobster trawl got entangled in the wreckage.

THE HIGH RELIEF WRECK - MID SOUND SITE

Last spring we came across an unusual sonar image. We made a few passes with the boat and we were puzzled. Something was definitely down there. What ever it was it was not an naturally formed structure. We decided to dive down and take a look. This is what we found!

THE SHALLOW BOILERS WRECK- STRATFORD CT

After a few years of driving over this site we finally dropped down to film it. It turns out.. it was way more than what we expected to find. A few boilers and a large engine. That seems to be the best guess over here. Check it out and see what you think! All opinions are welcomed! Send your guesses to info@squalusmarine.com!

FROST POINT FLUKE AND PROP FOUL - WESTPORT CT

We received a call from someone in Southport Connecticut who had a fouled prop. So we went over to help them out with that. After the dive job we had a lot of air left in our tank. We decided to check out a shallow rock outcropping in Westport called Frost Point.

HOUSATONIC RIVER BREAKWATER - MILFORD, CONNECTICUT SIDE!

We had some gas left over in one of our larger tanks after our Bridgeport dive. So instead of wasting it we found a nice shallow site. The Housatonic River has a small breakwater just east of it in Milford, CT. Its a known fishing spot. We figured there must be something cool to see there, so we went! We were very happy with the visibility and the diverse marine life in, on and around the rocks!

THE BRIDGEPORT BARGES ( ERIE CANAL BOATS) - BRIDGEPORT CONNECTICUT

So today it was a little rough out in The Sound. So, instead of wasting a bright, but windy day. We decided to do a very special dive in Bridgeport, Connecticut. We went way up into the harbor and the wind was no longer a factor. A few years ago we asked the State of Connecticut if we could film The Bridgeport Barges. They are the only shipwrecks in The National Register of Historical Sites. They agreed under the strict guidelines of look but do not touch! We agreed and today was the day. We hit the location at low tide and dove just one of the boats. We hope you enjoy the dive.

WE ARE BACK BIG for 2015! and THE GRAVEL BARGE WRECK, WESTPORT CONNECTICUT!

Hello everyone out there in Internet Land! Captain Denis here with the latest news!

First off we upgraded to a larger dive boat! We went from 18 to 23 feet, 125HP to a 200HP and from 52 gallons to 125 gallons! All of this will allow us to bring more divers, go farther and see more without worrying about the seas too much!

Secondly, we did our first dive of 2015. We investigated a site in Westport Connecticut that appeared to be a debris field. So we decided to dive down and check it out. Turns out it was a barge carrying gravel and possibly coal. (Apparently, there are barges all over The Sound.) Click the image under the Squalus 2 picture to dive THE GRAVEL BARGE.
