SS Dominator Shipwreck

Saves: 265
Check-ins: 27
This Greek freighter ran aground in 1961 after getting lost in thick fog. Large, oxidizing pieces of the ship are still beached on the rocky shore. Treasure hunting would be a fruitless endeavor - the ship was carrying wheat and beef. Seeing the remains of the vessel is a great way to get some good exercise in - you can only reach it by taking a 4-mile round-trip hike along a very narrow and rocky strip of beach that can be fly ridden during warmer months. For this excursion, put on pants and hiking boots and leave the dog at home.
