This chapter relates how a partnership between public, private, and academic entities was formed to begin a maritime survey of Pensacola Bay. Public awareness and sponsorship for the survey grew as dozens of wrecked or abandoned watercraft were recorded, culminating in the discovery of a well-preserved sixteenth-century Spanish shipwreck. This discovery prompted two campaigns of archaeological investigations to explore the site.
