July 2012. Scuba diving Lartington shipwreck with 'Dive Bermuda'.

The Lartington was built in 1875. On December 8th 1879 she departed Savannah Georgia for Russia with 4,000 bales of cotton. On December 10th she encountered a heavy sea. A huge wave struck the Lartington's stern causing a massive leak. The ship's pumps couldn't keep up with the flooding water and the captain decided to make a run towards Bermuda. On December 14th 1879 she ran aground on the reef five miles northwest of the Royal Naval Dockyard. The crew abandoned the ship in lifeboats and was soon spotted and towed into Hamilton by a pilot boat.
Today she lies in 15 to 30 feet of water.
