Santa Rosa Island Shipwreck: The wreck of a colonial frigate made in Veracruz lies in about 10-15 feet of water in Pensacola Bay. It very likely is the Nuestra Señora del Rosario y Sanitago Apostol (known as the Rosario) which sunk in a hurricane in 1705 while servicing the frontier garrison in Pensacola, Presidio Santa María de Galve.
The third and largest campaign was recently finished with students taking maritime archaeological field schools, which were followed by the conservation of archaeological materials course. This is an exceptional shipwreck, made of red mahogany and, to our surprise, much of the hull is intact.
Emanuel Point Shipwreck: In the fall of 2007, UWF publicly announced that after several months of evaluation, the shipwreck in Pensacola Bay formerly known as “Target 17” is the remains of one of the colonization ships of the Tristan de Luna fleet that sank in Pensacola Bay during a hurricane in 1559. The EPII, as it's currently called is our active project.
