The last voyage of the Karluk, flagship of the Canadian Arctic Expedition of 1913–16, ended with the loss of the ship in the Arctic seas, as well as nearly half of the crew. In August 1913, Karluk, became trapped in the ice during its exploratory expedition to the Beaufort Sea, before it was eventually crushed and sank. This launched the crew into a struggle for their survival, on the ice and the remote shores on Wrangel Island.
