Sad Serendipity: Shipwrecks On and Around the Palos Verdes Peninsula

Patrick Smith recorded this Aquacast at the Aquarium on March 9, 2017. Smith is a U.S. Coast Guard-licensed captain, commercial and scientific diver, and co-author of Shipwrecks of Southern California.

He discusses cargo ships, ferry boats, passenger liners, and ex-Civil War military vessels that all met their end in the picturesque but sometimes violent waters around the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
