  • Discovery Harbour new
    Discovery Harbour traces its roots back to the original British naval and military base in Penetanguishene, built to safeguard access to Upper Canada after the War of 1812. "His Majesty's Naval Establishment on Lake Huron", (as it was first called) kept ships prepared to supply British posts to the northwest. By 1820, it was home to over 70 people, including sailors, officers, shipwrights, and soldiers. Five large ships, 15 smaller vessels, and numerous workshops and dwellings were built. In 1828, a British garrison on Drummond Island was relocated to Penetanguishene. By 1834, Canada was defended exclusively by these forces. An impressive stone Officers' Quarters was built in 1845. The military occupied the site until 1856. Discovery Harbour is home port for two large replica historic ships and a fine collection of smaller vessels.

  • Hamilton & Scourge National Historic Site new
    The Hamilton and Scourge were initially named the Diana and the Lord Nelson respectively, before the War of 1812. The two vessels were merchant schooners; the Lord Nelson was originally a British ship and the Diana was American. The Lord Nelson was built at Niagara, Upper Canada, and was launched on May 1, 1811. The Diana was built in Oswego, New York, and was launched in 1809. The Hamilton and Scourge were not large specialized war vessels; instead, they were simple merchant ships that were pressed into service for the American Navy just prior to the War of 1812. When pressed into service for the American Navy, the 76-ton Hamilton was armed with eight 18-pound carronades and one 12-pound long gun on a pivot mount, while the 45-ton Scourge was armed with four 6-pound cannons and four 4-pound cannons. Both vessels foundered in Lake Ontario during a sudden squall just after midnight on August 8, 1813. Today, these vessels rest under 300 feet of water. Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

  • Whydah Pirate Museum new
    Cape Cod's newest museum featuring real pirates and real treasure from the pirate shipwreck Whydah. The real pirate life was exciting and dangerous, but also democratic and egalitarian. These four people-the Dutch-African sailor, the little boy, the ship’s captain, and the Miskito Indian helmsman lived aboard the Whydah, a slave ship overtaken and turned into a pirate ship in the early 18th century. The Whydah Pirate Museum reveals the true story behind this vessel and those who lived aboard-a story more compelling than any dreamt up by Hollywood. The Whydah left Africa in 1716, bearing the weight of human cargo. Reaching Caribbean waters, the ship was seized by Sam Bellamy, commander of a growing fleet of pirate ships. Shipwrecked in a nor’easter in 1717, the Whydah sank deep into Cape Cod waters, only to be discovered by intrepid diver Barry Clifford and his team, who have dove Cape Cod’s icy waters for years recovering artifacts from the Whydah, including cannon and pistols, navigational equipment, West African jewelry, buttons, buckles-and, of course pirate treasure: gold, silver, and pieces of eight. The Whydah Pirate Museum combines artifacts from the slave trade and the pirate's life, early maps of the Atlantic and the Caribbean, and imagery of the 18th-century world. The result is a rich and interesting tapestry that echoes a historically accurate portrait of real pirates in the Caribbean. W. Yarmouth, Massachusetts
