ADMAT Discovers a new Historic Shipwreck!

ADMAT returns from a very successful survey project in March in Monte Cristi Bay.  Raimund Krob led the team as we surveyed over 2 sq miles of Monte Cristi Bay where we know seven ships were sunk in the mid 1750's. The Team conducted survey lanes every 10 meters so surveying was like "mowing the lawn". On the last dive of the last day we dropped the shot and made the dive. As the Team descended to the seabed a small outcrop of bricks was found. This was identified as probable galley bricks, together with mast rings and small ballast stones. The Aquapulse metal detector rang all over the site.

John Downing will be leading a Team to investigate the wreck sitewe are calling Wreck two in July 2016.


Any person who wishes to be part of these historic surveys, must contact Dr. Spooner ASAP as places are extremely limited. He can be contacted on
