  • 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?

  • learning more about the nautical history of our province?


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