The Pilgrim's Trench shipwrecks

Pilgrim's Trench is a ship graveyard not far off of the northern coast of Skyrim.

This location is actually deep under water. It consists of four shipwrecks which lie on the bottom of the sea. The trench is only marked as discovered if you dive down to the ships.

Salmon and Arctic CharsCC can be found swimming in the waters here. A single AnglerCC fish can be found here, beneath a rocky outcrop on the ocean floor.

Pilgrim's TrenchEdit

The main ship (the one that isn't broken in two) has two chests containing minor loot. The first chest is just inside on the top deck beside all the rest of the furniture. The second chest is on the lower deck along with five food barrels and a dresser and wardrobe both containing clothes.

There are no underwater predators at this location, just an abundance of salmon and at least eleven Nordic barnacles. Most of the barnacles are on the main ship, both inside and outside, with some on the ceilings inside.

It is a long dive. All races except Argonians will need a waterbreathing effect to explore this location. Explorers should allow 60 seconds of waterbreathing for a quick dive and three minutes for a leisurely perusal of the site.

You may learn what happened to the ships if you manage to summon Velehk Sain in the Midden. He is dressed like a sailor, and tells you that while he was in Mundus, he used to be a pirate. He offers to give you some items he obtained during that time, and mentions that he and his companions sunk some Imperial ships. The treasure is magically hidden close to Pilgrim's Trench, on an island that has a statue of Talos.



  • South of Pilgrim's Trench is a small camp consisting of a sheltered bed roll, a campfire, and some containers. Sitting on a barrel is a note written by Trius, the camp's absent founder. (map)
  • There are two shrines of Talos nearby, one to the east on an island, and the other due south, past the unmarked camp, on the mainland.
