This “Graveyard of Lake Ontario” contains some of Ontario`s richest marine heritage. This area has been referred to as “The Marysburgh Vortex” and some compare it to the “Bermuda Triangle”. According to shipping and insurance records during the schooner era and the early days of steamship travel, more than two thirds of the shipwrecks in Lake Ontario occurred in the area encompassed by the alleged Vortex.
