The Cadet shipwreck is an archaeological site located in Lake George near Bolton in Warren County, New York. It is the site of the shipwreck of the 1893-built Olive ex Cadet steam launch. It was a 48-foot-long, 9.6-foot-wide wooden steamboat with a pointed bow, and was found submerged in approximately 50 feet of water.[2] The ship was discovered by Bateaux Below Inc. in 1997. In 2005, the ship was reported to be in fairly good condition, with its hull mainly intact.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]
