Our Goal

Focused on discovery not profit, Sealark intends to have a phased approach to the maritime mapping of historical and explosive remnants of WWII in the Solomon Islands.   Sealark plans to extend the coverage of previous data gathering to record and identify targets of interest and to confirm wrecks and UXO/ERW in the area. The output is to be a Wreck Diving Map to help boost tourism and record the history of this area and further afield.  Sealark specialises in maritime discovery, mapping and hydrographic surveying.

SECURING WRECKS

We plan to assist the Solomon Islands Government (SIG) to reduce the risks posed by Unexploded Ordinance (UXO) and Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) at wreck sites by identifying  the ordnance, it's stability and danger to the local population.   

DIVE MAPPING

When appropriate the hydrographic data collected will be passed on to increase navigational safety.  This information will in turn assist in the creation of accurate navigational charts. 

INCREASE TOURISM

Announcements of finds of historical significance will bring global attention to the Solomon Islands and to the wrecks themselves. We expect increased tourism activity from recreational divers who wish to visit the sites and dive on the wrecks.
