Learn about Florida's underwater archaeological resources.

Did you know Europeans settled in Florida before Jamestown or Plymouth Rock?  While some of the first things that come to mind when visiting Florida are the great weather, white sand beaches and world-class theme parks, many people are not aware that the Sunshine State is home to the first Thanksgiving, the first Christmas and the oldest European-founded city in the United States.

Florida has one of the longest continuous coastlines in the country with more than 1,260 miles, not to mention the more than 12,000 miles of fishable rivers, streams and canals.  Florida's water resources and transportation along them have influenced many aspects of our culture.  In Florida, there are both prehistoric and historic sites located offshore and in rivers and sinkholes - from submerged Native American canoes and habitation sites to the remains of sunken steamboats and schooners.

Florida has always been a land of exploration and cultural diversity, so it's no coincidence that the state has an abundance of historical and cultural offerings.  From incredible archaeological sites both on land and in the water, you can learn, explore and find a Florida you may never have known.
