Shipwreck 15577 Dive Highlights July 19

This is a highlight album from our dive on July 19, 2013. Hercules and Argus were exploring various parts of a copper-clad, 19th century shipwreck located 170 miles off of Galveston, TX in the Gulf of Mexico. Initially a video and photo overview of the wreck was conducted, followed by a detailed mapping survey once a perimeter was establised using LBL devices. We found several interesting types of artifacts, such as a cannon, muskets, plates, bottles, a stove, anchors, and navigation tools. Some interesting creatures were also noted on the wreck, such as sea cucumbers, crabs, and anemones.
