Shipwrecks

Wreck of the MV Ithica (Churchill)

While shipping a load of nickel from Rankin Inlet, in the Northwest Territories, to Montreal, Quebec in 1961, the MV Ithica was caught in a wind storm and was stranded in the tidal flats approximately 20 km (12 miles) east of Churchill. The ship was once owned by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. It can be reached by foot when the tide is low, or when the Hudson Bay is frozen over, although extensive corrosion of the decks has made it unsafe to board.

Location:
20 km (12 miles) east of Churchill.
