A short report on the ongoing work CMAR is doing in Biscayne National Park.
The multi-year project involves the survey and mapping of several shipwreck sites within the park for inclusion in a "shipwreck trail" project the park is developing. Previously we worked the Spanish freighter, ALICIA, lost in 1905 on Ajax Reef. Currently we are working the ERL KING, a steam clipper built for the Australia-China trade in 1865. She operated under a variety of companies until 1891 when she drove ashore on Long Reef, just east of Elliot Key.
