Underwater Archaeology and Maritime History jobs

Volunteer Divers for Archaeological Project in Florida

Posted in Uncategorized by underwaterarchaeologyjobs on October 1, 2010

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.
