The Weehawk, originally named the W.A. Baldwin, was a ferry that operated in New York Harbor from the 1920's through the 1950's. In 1958, the Weehawk was moved to a Canada-US route (Cornwall Island and Rooseveltown, N.Y) while the construction of a bridge to span the St. Lawrence Seaway was completed. After 1958, the ship was destined for the scrapyard.
Originally 405 gross tons and 145.6 feet long, the Weehawk could carry 36 cars and about 500 passengers.
Eventually, two thirds of the ship was scrapped by a local, before he was unable to complete the job of dismantling the ferry after being involved in a car accident. The Weehawk had arrived at its final resting spot.
Today, the Weehawk shipwreck is a popular spot for freediving and novice divers. Access to the interior can be had by a small doorway near the old canal wall at Lock 28 in Cardinal, ON.
