It is not an exaggeration to say that the coastal waters of Florida are littered with shipwrecks. Humans have been making their way around those waters for well over 6000 years, and during that time many a vessel has found its way to the bottom as a result of difficult weather and other maritime difficulties. This delightful National Register of Historic Places Travel Itinerary will take visitors all the way to Davy Jones' Locker and back, in a matter of speaking. Visitors can use the diver icon to look over a list of sites, view a map of all the featured shipwrecks, and even learn about additional itineraries. The sites profiled here include the USS Massachusetts, the SS Tarpon, and the fabled Half Moon, which was a racing yacht constructed of chrome-nickel steel. After looking over the site's materials, more than a few users may want to get their diving certification and take a trip to the warm waters off of the Sunshine State.
