The G.B. Church is a 165' freighter that sits just off from a small island called Portland, a short distance away from Sidney. Interestingly there is life inside the wreck as well as on the outer surfaces. Depths range about 75' - 90' at the bottom and the tower is in about 30' with the masts extending even higher. The deck sits at roughly 50'. There are buoys marking the bow and stern. Navigation is simple and current is minimal on this ship except in large exchanges. There are large swim-throughs with minimal hazzards which make this a great site for new wreck divers and recreational divers alike.
Current sensitive during large exchanges. Marine preserve - no spear-fishing or collection allowed. It is not advisable to enter any wreck unless properly trained.
How to get there:
Out of Sidney on the southeast side of Portland Island. Mooring buoy located on site.
