    Rebreather Experience:
    The UASBC is a 175 member group of volunteer, avocational underwater archaeologists. We are mostly from British Columbia but also have members who live all over North America. The Society is the largest diving group in British Columbia, and one of the largest and most active heritage organizations in the province. We have four chapters in BC: the Lower Mainland, Southern Interior and Vancouver Island.

    The UASBC assists archaeologists by undertaking worthwhile projects not currently addressed by professionals. Exploration and inventories of shipwrecks and other submerged cultural sites are an especially important contribution. Information about the location, history, and status of these resources is vital to their conservation and management. The British Columbia Archaeology Branch, in particular, needs such data in order to establish site management policy before a user conflict or preservation crisis arises.
