Volunteer Divers for Archaeological Project in Florida

Dives began in September and continue through October.

Operational details – This site has previously given up Paleo Indian and other pre-historic remains (dated at 10 – 11,000 yrs old) and it is believed to contain additional items of potential historical importance including significant fossilized remains. We are seeking volunteer divers to assist with the sub-surface excavation at the site. We will be removing build up that has covered the wall over the last 20 plus years (since last dive operations were concluded). This a strictly volunteer opportunity and we anticipate that it will be limited to a maximum of 12 to 14 volunteer divers. Training will be provided, divers will be recognized for their contributions and divers are free to discuss/post their experiences while on the site, with minimal limitations.

Dive Qualifications Required – We will consider any diver with an advanced open water certification that includes training as a deep diver and nitrox diver. Although vis at the site is generally good, some operations may cause limited visibility, so a night/limited visibility or cave/technical wreck certification is recommended but not required. All participants will receive training in underwater archeological technique and c-cards will be available upon request.
