Dive Slates

Dive slates were created from data collected during expeditions to various shipwreck sites. Site surveys and video and photographic data were used to create an accurate representation of the site as it existed at that time.

These dive slates may be used for educational purposes or by recreational divers as they enjoy diving on the shipwrecks. To request a plastic copy of any or all of the dive slates, click here, or you may mail your request to:
