The Marine Heritage collection consists of artifacts discovered by the Hawai‘i Undersea Research Laboratory (HURL) dating back to the first discovery of a Navy Dauntless dive bomber in 1984. This collection is only a fraction of our history that rests upon seabed with surveyed items ranging from those of great historical significance to unique artifacts from bygone Hawaiian eras.
Where possible, each artifact page includes images, basic facts and information, and a short assessment and history of the item. Images include captures from the video or photographs shot through the viewport, historic photos of the artifact including likeness during its era and any modern images of restorations, and any drawings, schematics, sonar scans, side scans, multi-beam, or newspaper articles that might be informative. Please be aware that some of the information provided is speculation or estimation. This information is marked by "*". However, please note that the locations of artifacts are not publicly available for the protection of our maritime heritage.
