The Dolphin 1930

The Dolphin was built in Port Adelaide in 1882. It was a goods steamer measuring 100ft long and of 146 tons. The Dolphin was a wooden carvel-planked, screw steamer. Originally used as a goods steamer it was later converted to a training ship for the WA Sea Scouts. Due to problems in upkeep costs the Dolphin was towed to Penguin Island where it sank. The wreck is situated in shallow water off the northern tip of the island on the eastern side. Little is left of the wreck due to a heavy sand and weed overburden.
