Wrecks and Obstructions Database
The Office of Coast Survey’s Wrecks and Obstructions database contains information on the identified submerged wrecks and obstructions within the U.S. maritime boundaries. The data includes the position of each feature (latitude and longitude) along with a brief description and attribution (where available). Information for the database is sourced from the NOAA Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) and Automated Wrecks and Obstructions Information System (AWOIS).
