Shipwrecks Conference

Without any doubt, the Underwater Archaeological Society of British Columbia’s most popular and exciting, non-diving event is our annual SHIPWRECKS conference. While you will need to leave your regulators and scuba tanks at home for this event, we promise there will be no shortage of diving stories, and divers to meet, at this annual one day conference.

SHIPWRECKS began in 1986 and the success of this annual UASBC event has continued to this day. The location of the conference tends to rotate between the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, and the theme of the event changes annually, but the spirit has remained the same for over 25 years and counting. The one day event includes a daytime session feature multiple captivating guest speakers, as well as a Woodward lecture and dinner.  Come out and enjoy a day of learning about British Columbia’s maritime heritage and exploration!

On Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the Hellenic Community Centre in Vancouver the UASBC held its

32nd annual Shipwrecks Conference.  About 45 people enjoyed the presentations on 

Mediterranean Maritime History and Underwater Archaeology

We look forwards to welcoming everyone to the Conference in Victoria in 2020.
