Archaelogical Investigations at Saona Island


The Underwater Science Program at Indiana University is implementing the preliminary steps toward creating a shipwreck park at Isla Saona off the southeast coast, facilitating research on 15th century wrecking events on the island's offshore reefs, and conducting further intensive remote sensing survey and anomaly testing in an attempt to locate historically-documented, Columbus era wreck sites at La Isabela.
