Here in North Carolina we have the pleasure of being able to dive in the Graveyard of the Atlantic. Many ships sunken off our coast hold tons of history, in this course you will learn about one of our most famous wrecks The Queen Anne's Revenge.
You’ll learn about archaeology, shipwrecks, laws protecting cultural resources, the identification and dating of maritime artifact, and issues of conservation. Most importantly, you will learn to be “citizen archaeologists” helping archaeologists learn about the past while not causing damage to non-renewable heritage resources. You will put this knowledge to the test on one open water dive to explore a submerged cultural resource.
Divers must be Open Water certified and be at least 12 years of age. One open water dive is required. The only requirement for non-divers is to be interested! No diving or in-water training is required.
