The snow and ice cover the rocks along the coastline of Bird Cove in the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba as the remains of the shipwreck of the M/V Ithaca sits in the background. The fog encompasses the rusted out hull of the shipwreck that still sits along the rocky spit of Bird Cove.

The M/V Ithaca ran aground back in 1961 when high winds and ferocious currents swept across the Hudson Bay. Nothing that the captain or crew of the M/V Ithaca tried was enough to keep this ship steady in this particular torrential storm that swept through Churchill, Manitoba.

The M/V Ithaca shipwreck is only visible to tourists when the tide is out or when the water of Bird Cove in the Hudson Bay freezes over. This shipwreck is only for looking at from a distance as it is very unsafe to try and board this ship due to the deteriorating condition.

While visiting Churchill, Manitoba, be sure to stop at Bird Cove and have a good look at this shipwreck but be very aware in the winter months for any Polar Bears lurking about. This is a great time to be able to view the shipwreck, but it is also the wakening of the Polar Bears as they head out to the frozen waters of the Hudson Bay in search of food.
