A Quest for Discovery-The Shipwreck Called the Montague (Nova Scotia)

Nova Scotia is no stranger to shipwrecks.  In fact, Nova Scotia has the greatest collection of shipwrecks in North America.

This leads us to the main course in our written meal: the search for the Montague.  According to local sources, in 1760, the brigantine capsized in the Canard River after completing its mission. The vessel ventured into low tide, then the Montague struck a sandbar and was left stranded in the mud.  It wasn’t long until the rough water stripped it and hauled the vessel beneath it’s shadowy waters.

The Kings Historical Society and Innovative have teamed together on a voyage for more answers about the Montague.
