The Brunswick is the historic shipwreck of an English East Indiaman. The ship was armed with thirty guns and transported goods between Britain and the East Indies. The Brunswick ran aground near Simon's Town on September 19, 1805 after losing three anchors during a southeastern storm. The wooden wreck lies in shallow water and has partially sunk into the fine sandy bottom. The wooden ship's structure above the sand is overgrown with kelp and other seaweeds. The Brunswick lies at an angle of about 45 degrees to the coastline.
