The Lastingham, which sunk on September 1st 1884, on the western side of Cape Jackson, New Zealand, was bound from London to Wellington with a cargo of general goods. 18 lives were lost during her sinking with the survivors spending 3 uncomfortable days before being discovered on this exposed headland without food or water and only in the cloths they were wearing. The Lastingham is now an historical wreck. Diving on the wreck is a trip back in time as much of her cargo still remains. The majority of the wreck is 12 meters of water making her a safe and very enjoyable dive. Much of the wreck is covered in weed and home to some large Crayfish and Moki. Visibility averages around 10-12 meters.
