HMCS Saguenay, scuttled off Lunenburg Nova Scotia In 1994.
HMCS Saguenay was a St. Laurent-class destroyer that served in the Royal Canadian Navy and later the Canadian Forces from 1956-1990. She was the second vessel in her class and the second Canadian naval unit to carry the name HMCS Saguenay.
Saguenay was decommissioned from active service in the Canadian Forces on 26 June 1990. She was sold to the South Shore Marine Park Society which scuttled her in 1994 as an artificial reef in Lunenburg Bay, off Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
The east coast of Canada is covered with the remains of centuries of bad weather, poor judgement and ill-luck. The older wrecks along these shores are often remarkably well preserved, and serve as a unique window into a bygone seafaring age; while the more modern sunken ships provide a colossal exploration ground for the keen wreck diver.
