Shipwreck Preservation Society

of Newfoundland & Labrador

The Mission of SPSNL is to advance the awareness, documentation and stewardship of shipwrecks throughout our province.

The Objectives of SPSNL are to:

  • promote the study, documentation and appreciation of Newfoundland & Labrador shipwrecks, and training in the historical, archaeological and diving methods needed to achieve this goal;
  • promote the preservation of provincial shipwrecks through diver education and wreck protection activities; and
  • promote a public awareness of shipwrecks and the importance of our nautical heritage to the history of Newfoundland & Labrador, in partnership with local communities and cultural heritage organizations.

All SPSNL initiatives are founded on values of fellowship, inclusion and respect.
