S.S. Burton
Gig Harbor, Gig Harbor, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Intermediate
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Large Wreck,

The Burton was a 95' long wood hulled steamship used as a passenger and cargo ferry by Mosquito Fleet in the early 1900's. She was eventually decommissioned and later caught fire and sunk in 40' of water near what is now the Tides Tavern in Gig Harbor. It is a nice dive site for the historical minded, but there is little structure remaining.

The entire hull of The Burton has long since decayed and disappeared leaving only the boiler and some of the deck equipment and propulsion system lying on the bottom. There are a few stacks of the fire bricks laying next to the boiler. The boiler tubes house many small gunnels, sculpin and shrimp, each claiming their own tube for a home.
