With over 300 shipwrecks in its waters, Bermuda is the wreck-diving capital of the Atlantic. One of the most notable is the Mary Celeste, a Civil War-era steamer that sank in 1864 but made news in 2011 when five bottles of 148-year-old wine were found in her bow in addition to an intact bottle of London’s Piesse & Lubin perfume, which was removed, studied, and recreated by the Bermuda Perfumery (you can buy it at its Front Street and St. George locations). Today divers of the site are treated to stunning views of the wreck, which now sits in 50 feet of water where its large wooden paddlewheel is still visible.
