The SS Charcot was a ship that was constructed for hunting whales in Southern Labrador. It was then sold to the Hawkes Harbour Whaling Company which was based out of Conception Bay.
During a storm in 1970, the ship broke its moorings and was pushed ashore. It remains there to this day, with it's rusted hull peaking out of the water in Conception Harbour, 4 km north of Avondale.
On this night the abandoned wreck was particularly stunning. So much so that even the bioluminescent algae came out to play!
