Chester A. Poling (Stern)


The wreck of the Chester Poling exists in two sections separated by several miles with the stern section upright and intact in 28m/91ft and the bow section several miles away, turtled in 57m/190ft. The stern section of the wreck is perhaps the most popular wreck dive in New England, north of Cape Cod. It is what some call a "Hollywood Wreck" because it is intact, upright and has the classic features of a shipwreck that are obvious to almost any diver. The bow section is known as a "deep, dark and scary" dive with low visibility and very silty conditions. As a result, it is infrequently visited.
