Description

The Dauntless is among the historic Mosquito Fleet ships that worked the Puget Sound in earlier years. According to Scott Boyd, the Dauntless was a 93 ft wood-burning steamer passenger ferry built in 1899 and sank in 1923 at its current destination due to a storm.

The wreck of the Dauntless has now mostly decayed and only remaining items include the huge propeller, engine, the remainder of the boiler and fire bricks and some other metal items that have withstood the years. These remains have attracted sealife that would otherwise not be present in this location such as rockfish, schools of perch, greenling, small lingcod and some interesting invertebrates. The sea bed surrounding The Dauntless is a sand and mud slope with an occasional rock or derelict gear.

Special Restrictions:

Although not a terrible current intensive site, as always it is important to select a mild exchange or use a live boat for safety. Beware of boat traffic.

How to get there:

The easiest way to find the Dauntless is to follow GPS coordinates since there is very little vertical structure to see on a depth finder. The wreck lies on a slope outside extends from about 50-60 ft depending on tidal depths. It is located in Seattle just north of Golden Garden Park and south of Carkeek Park. FYI - on a larger scale it means that it lies about half way between Seattle and Edmonds.
