Underwater Park Development

For nearly 20 years Indiana University has been instrumental in establishment, development and assessment of underwater parks in the United States and the Caribbean. We believe that underwater park establishment is the most effective way of preserving the submerged cultural and biological resources for generations to come. Properly designed, interpreted and managed, underwater parks not only protect the resources for the future, but also play a vital role in educating the current generations about their historical past and environmental present.
