    The following link is to a google maps page showing the shipwrecks in this area: Shipwrecks of the Carolinas.

    This may prove useful to someone coming in from out of the area or new to the area and is unfamiliar with where the shipwrecks are located. There have been maps created and posted previously but I had not seen any that plotted them on a single map. With Google Maps, you can move up and down the coast as well as zoom in or out as desired. I was also able to include a bit of information about each shipwreck: how it got there, when it sank, depth at that site, and any interesting historical notes. If I could find a picture of the ship, I included it as well.

    This should have the majority of the more popular wrecks on it but is by no means complete. I am still adding new wrecks to it.

    Great Reference. Thank you Packman. Lots of the shipwreck names bring back dive memories long ago forgotten.
