- To assist volunteer - students to take part in maritime archaeological field excavations and surveys
- To protect the Underwater Maritime Cultural Heritage. We survey, record and advise on how to protect, shipwrecks from the old European empires.
ADMAT is the only non profit organisation operating in the Americas which assists the protection of Underwater Cultural Heritage and encourages students and volunteers to take part. Together we are making a difference!
