Well before Aqua Quest International was founded, we worked aboard the RV Aqua Quest in partnership with North Caribbean Research and the Government of the Dominican republic to locate, salvage and preserve artifacts on the north coast of the Country. Primarily, we worked in and around Monte Cristi Bay near the border of Hatti but there were many excursions to the east toward Puerto Plata.

This was a valuable time in our history as we gained much experience and insight into building a sustainable working relationship with our partners including various Government entities such as the Government of Dominican Republic administered Conservation Laboratory and Museum.

The photographs below document some of our many adventures from this project.
