Shipwreck exploration begins

February 18, 2005

Queen of Nassau.

'Queen of Nassau' was Canada's first modern war ship. A crew associated with a best-selling author Clive Cussler's underwater exploration organization is expected to help explore a Keys shipwreck, beginning Monday.

The two-week expedition seeks to use digital photography to map the deepwater site of the Queen of Nassau shipwreck, on the ocean floor off Islamorada, nearly 230 feet below the surface.

The Maritime Archaeology Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminstration will lead the effort, along with the National Undersea Research Center run by the University of North Carolina-Wilmington (operators of the Aquarius lab).
