On June 27, 1748 HMS Fowey, a fifth rate frigate struck a coral reef and sank, coming to rest on the sea bed near present day Miami, Florida. The wreck remained undiscovered until the 1970s, when a local sport diver located its remains within the boundaries of Biscayne National Park. The NPS relocated the remains soon afterward, and later identified the wreck as that of HMS Fowey.
Biscayne National Park and the NPS Submerged Resources Center partnered with Youth Diving With a Purpose for a youth engagement project focused on shipwreck archeology.
