Shipwreck Preservation Society

of Newfoundland & Labrador

Welcome to

The Shipwreck Preservation Society of Newfoundland & Labrador (SPSNL) welcomes anyone who is curious about shipwrecks in our province. What are your interests:

  • diving on shipwrecks?
  • researching the history of shipwrecks?
  • exploring for shipwrecks?
  • identifying and documenting new shipwrecks?
  • surveying and mapping known shipwrecks?
  • photographing and videoing wrecks?
  • protecting shipwrecks?
  • promoting shipwrecks as tourist attractions?
  • learning more about the nautical history of our province?


But the SPSNL does not welcome anyone who wants to remove artifacts illegally from shipwrecks!

SPSNL is inviting all those interested in shipwrecks and wreck diving to join us on Saturday afternoon on July 18th in Conception Harbour. SPSNL and the town of Conception Harbour are unveiling the new storyboard on the three whaling shipwrecks and improved diving facilities. Free BBQ!
