ADMAT returns from Wreck One Survey March 2016 Project, in Monte Cristi, Dominican Republic.


This project was led by former ADMAT student Raimund Krob who with a small team conducted a geophysical survey of the centre section of Monte Cristi Bay. Using state of the art surveying package and ADMAT's side scan sonar we mapped the seabed. In this survey we did not locate the Wreck One but did locate on the last dive of the last day, a new wreck site we are calling Wreck Two


We will be releasing the summary and photos of this project soon as well as.
