Around the world, there thousands and thousands of ships in service. These beasts roam the earth’s oceans to fulfill the needs of mankind for transportation, fishing and many others.  These floating structures, although big and sturdy with bodies made of steel are often helpless when they earn the ire of nature.

Beneath  the world’s oceans, you can find the remains of hundreds or thousands of ships resting quietly and frozen in time since the day they sank into oblivion. There are however ones which are lucky enough not to vanish completely into the depths but remained standing and immovable in spite of the endless battering of mischievous waves. These ships somehow refuse to give up and resent their untimely rest in the lonely and watery graves they are on. But for the fishes and other aquatic creatures, shipwrecks are like posh housing facilities where they can take refuge and enjoy life. This paradox is what makes abandoned ships and shipwrecks a good thing to look at. No wonder shipwrecks are becoming tourist destinations.

In this article, we are showcasing abandoned ships and shipwreck pictures that you can take a look for your enjoyment. These ships come in different shapes and sizes and each has its unique individual story for its demise. If you want to know more of these ships, you can visit their respective sources and read more about them. You can also go beyond and look them in the search engines or Wikipedia. These things are actually up to you.
