To create historically rich maps that capture the essence of marine history of the area.
We strive to provide maps of great detail with exceptional attention to accuracy by referencing a variety of resources and working with a network of public facilities to showcase our findings.
The idea for our company came from a wonderful weekend at the cottage on Georgian Bay. Having heard about the Mapledawn wreck near Christian Island, we set out on the boat to explore with family and friends. The intrigue of underwater history set in! Since that sunny day on the bay, we've been working to locate resources and piece together the story of area shipwrecks for others to enjoy.
Enticed by the richness of our marine history, wreck exploration, by snorkel or dive, generates a strong sense of adventure in us all.
We are still researching other shipwrecks in Georgian Bay, so continue to check back to our site to see the next GBW map.
