The Marquette is currently the most intact of the area's wooden wrecks and because it is sheltered from the Westerly winds it can be dived and snorkelled most days of the season

Marquette was discovered almost entirely by accident in the search for another ship
The shipwreck offers excellent views and photography opportunities of two wooden-stocked bow anchors, with chains still connecting them to the windlass. Also present are a samson post, double framing, centreboard box,  centreboard winch, main mast step, a capstan lying on its side in the sand inside the hull, plank sheers, and a portion of the rudder.

It had sunk in 1867, after being damaged in a storm and dropping anchor on the lea side of Hope Island to make repairs. A sudden wind shift caught the crew off guard, finishing off the job the storm had begun, sending the schooner to the sandy bottom
