About The Carthaginian Ship

The complicated rigging work of the second incarnation of the Carthaginian was done at the dock in Lahaina and modeled after the dimensions of the 1870 brig Marie Sophie. After serving many years as a floating museum in Lahaina, the ship was sunk in 2005, continuing as a beloved landmark.

Today the Carthaginian is a base for Hawaii coral and serves as a gathering place for ocean life. A semi-penetrable wreck, the hull is a favorite of white tip reef sharks who can often be seen resting inside. Eagle rays and dolphins are sometimes spotted passing by in the blue, while frog fish, eels, starfish and other smaller creatures stay close to the safety of the ship. Atlantis Submarine frequently runs tours that circle the ship, giving lucky divers a chance to wave at their passengers and pose for a photo with a submarine in the backdrop.
