This section contains an alphabetical list of all known shipwrecks in Alaskan Waters. The earliest recorded wrecks in Alaskan waters begin with Russian activities back to 1750 and the latest I have entered is 2017. The coordinates given on each wreck are for the geographic features which are cited in wreck reports and listings. Most are from the Dictionary of Alaska Place Names. If a casualty report mentions that a wreck took place in Cook Inlet, I use the longitude and latitude that the Dictionary of Alaska Place Names gives for Cook Inlet, which is a point somewhere in the middle of Cook Inlet. Sometimes the coordinates are more accurate. Wolcott Reef, for example, is a much smaller geographic feature, so the coordinates I use, given in the Dictionary of Alaska Place Names, would probably put you very near that particular wreck magnet and a bunch of rocks with multiple colors of bottom paint on them. There is an explanation of abbreviations at the beginning of each section. Thanks for visiting and smooth sailing… Captain Warren Good. Please respect Copyrights.
