10 STRANGEST Abandoned Ships

From giant shipwrecks; to mysterious disappearances; this is the best of STRANGEST Abandoned Ships Subscribe to Talltanic 6.S.S. Palo Alto Built in Oakland California, the S.S. Palo Alto was a concrete ship. Wait what? Yeah you heard that right. Concrete. Ship. It turns out, it was a lot cheaper to find the materials, but the labor and operating costs were higher than usual. So fair trade off I guess ?? Anyway, the ship was completed in 1919, too late to see any action in the war.In 1929, a company decided to turn it into an amusement park. A pier was built to reach the ship, but not even two years later the company went bankrupt. Nothing of note has happened since then, the ship can still be found at the Seacliff Beach. Oh yeah, in 2005 it was found out that the concrete ship was leaking fuel… why it still had fuel in its tanks almost a 100 years later is a mystery for another time. 5.Temple Hall Finding information on this shipwreck was harder than I thought ! Built in 1954, the Temple Hall changed many owners during its years of operation. On a voyage from San Pedro to Thessaloniki, the ship was stuck between a rock and a hard wave so to say. Bad weather, heavy seas, and no luck to be found, the Temple Hall, now known as the Telamon ran aground near the Canary Island, Lanzarote. It didn’t help that the maintenance record for the ship was abysmal, you can still find it at the exact same spot, some 40 years after it wrecked. 4. Edro III The Edro III is another norwegian cargo ship that had an unfortunate history. The ship ran aground near Pegeia, Cyprus. As always, rough seas and bad weather were blamed for the wreck, there was no salvage operations attempted, but the ship was emptied of all cargo, fuel, oil and anything that will negatively impact the local environment. Articles state that it is now forbidden to visit the ship because its deemed too dangerous, which means at some point, people were allowed to explore it, which must have been a pretty cool experience. As if one shipwreck wasn’t enough, you can also find the remains of the MV Demetrios II nearby. That one seems to not have fared as well as Edro III. 3. MV Kalakala The motor vessel kalakala was originally named the Peralta, and it served the San Francisco Bay Area. It was quickly sold to a Seattle businessman, and became a staple of Seattle. From postcards to songs, this ship was the bee’s knees. She served over a million visitors a year, and everybody had nice things to say about their experience on the ship. Buut, all good things come to an end sometime. The Kalakala silently fell into obscurity and became a fishing vessel off the coast of Alaska. In a sweet turn of events, an arts and history group purchased the vessel and brought it back to the pacific northwest. It was to be returned to its former glory at a shipping yard in Tacoma, Washington. Eh… it didn’t work out. By 2011, the coast guard wanted the ship scrapped because it was a danger to nearby shipping routes. During the scrapping process, an auction was held for bits and pieces of this strange and beautiful ship, within hours, the Kalakala was inducted into the “Things that will live Forever” hall of fame, figuratively speaking. Bits and pieces of the vessel are scattered all around the world, some in museums, some in private collections, abandoned, but not forgotten. 2.MV Sygna | Australia In 1974, the MV Sygna, a norwegian bulk carrier, was caught in the middle of a major storm near the coast of New South Wales, Australia. Stockton Beach to be more exact. To make things worse for the, the MV Sygna was on its MAIDEN Voyage, meaning it was the first journey of the ship. The MV Sygna was 4 miles off the coast, waiting to load up with 50,000 tonnes of coal. Wind gusts reached 100m/hr(160km/h) and the captain decided to set sail. Unfortunately, the orders came too late, the Sygna was unable to escape the storm and it ran aground. Abandon Ship orders were given because of the beating the ship was receiving. The rescue was no walk in the park, but all 31 sailors made it out alive. During the first salvage operation the ship broke in 2. The 2nd operation didn’t go as planned either. Only the bow section of the ship was salvaged. The rest, has become an iconic part of Stockton beach. Here is a little progression of the ship over the years, this is 10 years after, 30 years after, and 42 years later. 1...

The Lost City Of Heracleion

Heracleion, also known as Thonis, was an ancient Egyptian city near Alexandria whose ruins are located in Abu Qir Bay, submerged in 150 feet of water. Its legendary beginnings go back to as early as the 12th century BC, and it is mentioned by ancient Greek historians. Its importance grew especially during the waning days of the Pharaohs—the late period, when it was Egypt's main port for international trade and collection of taxes.

These discoveries are the kinds of stories you imagine that tales like Indiana Jones are based on, except for the fact that they all happen under the water! Wouldn’t it be amazing to attribute these finds to mermaid kingdoms, but sadly that’s not the case, they were all once bustling cities that befell terrible times that caused their underwater demise! We’re going under the surface today to figure out what happened to those once thriving places.

7 - Baiae, Bacoli, Italy…
This was the place to be seen in the years 100 BC to 500 AD, where the super-rich would spend their days in luxurious villas. It was thought to be more fashionable than Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Capri, and maybe that’s because the party was always happening there – you know, hedonistic offerings, a little corruption, the odd scandal, drinking on the beach… So, what happened? Saracens invaded the city in the 8th century, by 1500 it was abandoned and water levels slowly rose engulfing what was left of the city. The remains that survive today include ornate statues, a network of roads, beautiful marble floors and exquisite mosaics.

6 - Pavlopetri, Greece…
It’s been home to the fish for around 5,000-years, this is Pavlopetri – one of the oldest submerged cities in the world. Nicolas Flemming made this discovery in 1967 and it’s believed that earthquakes were the cause of this city being submerged for all eternity. It was a cultural hub of ancient Greece and it was an archeologist’s dream to discover – buildings, streets, tombs, courtyards and surreal artefacts. This once thriving harbor town is protected by the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.

5 - Kekova, Turkey…
It’s been called by many different names, Caravola, Dolichiste and Kakava, but they all refer to the same spot, and it’s this small island in Turkey where you can still see the sunken remains of Dolchiste. This ancient town was the victim of an earthquake sometime in the 2nd century, but rebuilt during the Byzantine period. Residents were subjected to Arab invasions, so it was eventually abandoned. Swimming used to be allowed in the area, but people were stealing pieces of the city left behind, and that was quickly banned. Turkey has applied to have the area protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but they are still waiting for confirmation.

4 - Atlit Yam, Israel…
Archaeologist Ehud Galili had the best day of his life back in 1984 when he discovered Atlit Yam, considered the earliest evidence of agro-pastoral-marine subsistence system on the Levantine coast. It’s old – between 8,900 and 8,300-years old - and lies submerged below 25-40-feet of water. It spans across 10-acres and discoveries have been plentiful, including houses, hearth places, a well, burial areas and the Crème de la crème, two skeletons – a woman a small child – showing the earliest case of tuberculosis that we know of!

3 - Thonis-Heracleion, Egypt…
The Greeks called it Heracleion and the ancient Egyptians called it Thonis – together they form Thonis-Heracleion. This was one of the most important port cities in the Med, and it’s been lying underwater for 1,200-years and has a load of secrets it can’t wait to share! This area used to be the official port-of-entry for Egypt, and is now roughly 4-miles from the current coastline! The water has preserved many of the artefacts very well, and divers are bringing up a vast array of treasures, from anchors, coins, pieces of shipwrecks, tablets bearing Greek and Egyptian inscriptions, sculptures and statues of more than 16-feet! The shipwrecks have puzzled researchers, as it has the highest number of shipwrecks found in one place, totaling 64. The exact cause of the city sinking is unknown, but it’ thought to have been because of an earthquake combined with unstable clay and sand foundations. The discovery can be attributed to Dr Franck Goddio who was looking for sunken French fighting vessels.

2 - Graun and Reschen, South Tyrol, Italy…
A little like Lion City we mentioned earlier, Graun and Reschen were flooded on purpose. The towns were torn down before any water touched the surface, and despite protests by civilians, the need for power … and I mean power to run households with -won. 163 houses were demolished and all that you can see now is the bell tower of Graun’s 14th-century church. Diving in the area won’t reap too many exciting finds, but what will totally make up for it is if you visit the area in winter when the lake freezes over and you can take a walk right up to the tower for the perfect photo opportunity.
