Welcome to the web site of
Non-Profit Marine Archaeology & Exploration
"Preserving the Past, By Diving the Future"
SIDCO is a nonprofit, 501(c)3, corporation dedicated to the proper archaeological preservation of historic shipwrecks and submerged sites for the express purpose of public display and education, and has already made a significant contribution to North Carolina's Maritime Historical Preservation. We have been involved in numerous archaeological surveys on shipwrecks all along the "Graveyard of the Atlantic".
SIDCO was formed in 1996, by a small group of sport divers working from a leaky old boat named "Surface Interval". The beloved patch-work vessel was no cruise ship, but she was all they had at the time. The decision to form a team was made on her "spongy" old deck, so they named the organization after her.
SIDCO is primarily responsible for the discovery of Fort Ocracoke Submerged Archaeological site, and a supporting entity on Blackbeard's flag ship, "Queen Anne's Revenge", the team has finished several projects and is currently working on a number of new discoveries.
We hope you enjoy our web site and invite you to come back often to see the Ongoing preservation of North Carolinas rich submerged cultural heritage.
