The Carthaginian is a replica of a 19th century brig similar to the ships that first brought commerce to the Hawaiian Islands. The ship serves as a reminder of Lahaina's nautical heritage. The ship was docked for many years at Lahaina Harbor, as seen in this photo.

On December 13, 2005, following two years of preparation, Atlantis Adventures sank the Carthaginian replica whaling ship off Lahaina, Maui, creating an artificial reef that will have lasting marine life benefits and enhance its submarine tour experience.
