Today, the skeletal remains of the ship jutting out of the sandy beach, beckoning photographers, beachcombers, and history buffs to come and experience the eerie wonder of this long-abandoned vessel.

One of the biggest issues trying to view the decaying shipwreck is that thousands of pounds of sand have been covering the shipwreck for years.

The Peter Iredale shipwreck is a must-see attraction on the Oregon coast and thanks to the King Tides, the ship is even more exposed than it ever has been in its history. I've enclosed some amazing new photos below of the wreck before where you can now see the ship clearly exposed.

As the weather and tides change, the Peter Iredale will likely be buried again as the sand shifts so if you are opting for a trip to the Oregon coast, now might be the best time to explore and seek out this amazing shipwreck on the Oregon coast.
