Our experts implement scientific rigor and practical regulatory experience to provide full-service cultural resource consulting underwater—also known as marine, maritime, or nautical archaeology.

From prehistoric sites to submerged historic structures, our team of experts works to ensure thorough identification and evaluation of cultural resources while advancing projects in a timely and environmentally responsible manner. Whether analyzing remote sensing data, testing submerged prehistoric sites, or completing pre-disturbance surveys and identification of shipwrecks, our trained and qualified in-house diving archaeologists have worked with clients along the U.S. coastline to support Section 106 compliance. We also assist state agencies to develop guidelines for submerged cultural resources.
