Admiral Von Tromp shipwreck Saltwick Bay



A 3am start to catch the sunrise!

For those who don’t know the place and the story, this is the shipwreck of Admiral Von Tromp which lies in Saltwick Bay near Whitby, North Yorkshire. The Admiral Von Tromp was a Scarborough, England based fishing trawler that ran aground on 30/09/1976. The exact circumstance of the accident remains a mystery as the boat was on completely the wrong course and a senior nautical surveyor at the inquest stated it appeared it was driven onto the rocks deliberately.
