This 164 ft. long ferry was built in Collingwood, Ontario in 1946 and named “Ottawa Maybrook” and was destined to China as a gift, however this was not completed when China became communist. The Wolfe Islander II was then converted to a car ferry and she serviced WolfeIsland to Kingston for many years and was intentionally sunk September 21, 1985 as a diving site.
Resting in 80 ft. of water she is normally buoyed for visitor divers.
