Dive Slates

Dive Slates

Dive slates are created from data collected during an expedition to a shipwreck site. Site surveys and video and photographic data are used to create an accurate representation of the site as it existed at that time. Dive slates include the wreck's location, historic vessel information, a site plan identifying the wreck's construction features and the marine life most commonly seen at the site. Dive slates may be used for educational purposes or by recreational divers as they enjoy diving on the shipwrecks.
