  • Scuba Diver in Long Island watersUrban Assembly New York Harbor School - Eco-Photo Explorers is devoting this section to help promote the valued services that the Harbor School is doing by helping students reach their highest academic standards. We are also proud to have photographed and documented some of their diversed diving programs.

    The Urban Assembly New York Harbor School is a public high school located on Governors Island In New York City. The school provides over 430 students, the majority of whom are classified as economically disadvantaged, with four years of college preparatory education, with a strong emphasis on maritime careers. Freshmen at the school can choose from six available career education paths, including such diverse and exciting disciplines as aquaculture, marine biology research, marine robotics and scientific diving. Tenth-grade scientific diving students are given the opportunity to train as certified SCUBA divers.

    The school has been operating for 11 years. Historically, more than 70% of the students entering Harbor School are performing below grade level in either math or reading before starting at the school. Last year, 97% of Harbor School graduates were accepted to college, going on to top colleges and universities, including Cornell, Fordham, Middlebury, Penn State, SUNY Maritime and Syracuse. Many have also gone on to work in the maritime industry as licensed boat captains, SCUBA divers, ocean engineers, marine technicians or marine biologists.

    While at the school, the student divers spend much of their underwater time exploring and studying the waters of New York Harbor and Governor's Island.

  • Queen Anne's Revenge, Blackbeard's Flagship (QAR Shipwreck Project) - The North Carolina Underwater Archaeology Unit has historically documented over 5,000 shipwrecks lost in state waters. These sites range from 4,000-year-old dugout canoes, to colonial ferries, Civil War steamers, and ships from the World War II era. None of these underwater archaeological sites, however, has had more impact than the shipwreck discovered near Beaufort Inlet by Intersal, Inc. in 1996. This Florida-based research, survey, and recovery group--working under the auspices of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources--located an early-eighteenth-century shipwreck believed to be the remains of Blackbeard's flagship Queen Anne's Revenge.

Other items include surface supplied dive equipment, double hose regulators, horse collar BCD’s and much more.
