Sunk: March 14, 1942
Clear visibility on most dives 30-40 ft.
The Tolten owns the distinction of being the last ship torpedoed during the war to be written about in the newspapers by name. She was hit by a torpedo from the U-404, very early in the morning, and there was only one survivor. The War Department stopped the announcement of ship's names after the Tolten was sunk, claiming it too much information was being given away to the enemy.
The wreck is still somewhat intact, though it has been wire-dragged to a safe navigation depth. The stern is by far the most recognizable piece, and easy to penetrate. Looking carefully at her bow you can see one of her remaining anchors still in the hawse pipe. This is great big-lobster dive site. Scallops can sometimes be found out in the sand as well. Lots and lots of fishlife. A very pretty dive.
